You may wish to start with a trial separation to figure out how things might be if the separation was to become permanent. If this is the case our team can talk you through the personal and financial considerations and agreements which need to be made in order to help you explore the option of a Separation Agreement or legal separation. We can also offer advice on moving on from this to formal divorce proceedings.

If you have decided you want to end your marriage or civil partnership our team can give you advice on how to achieve the best outcome.
