FAQs

Can I still file for divorce during COVID-19?
 
 

Despite what you may think, you are still perfectly able to file for divorce without breaking the government's current order to stay at home. All divorce applications are sent to the Liverpool Family Court and do not require you to attend court - our professional divorce law solicitors will ensure that the rest is done for you in order to proceed with your application as fast as possible. Normally, we'd like to meet with our clients to discuss your own personal situation, but given the current climate, we will telephone you in order to take your instruction. Please be assured that we are still working just as hard and still have a full professional team of solicitors for divorce cases, despite having closed most of our offices. On the phone, we will explain how we can send documentation to the court as well as how you can safely post your marriage certificate to complete your application. If you have any questions before, during or after the process, please do not hesitate to contact our professional team of divorce law solicitors.

How do I begin to file a divorce with Forbes?
 
 

If your marriage has broken down and you wish to divorce your spouse, the help of a professional in divorce law can ensure that the process is done properly. At Forbes, our years of experience dealing with divorce means that we are well-equipped to handle any divorce case. We understand that during a process as stressful as divorce, you need both a professional and supportive ear to ensure that things are done properly. Firstly, we will arrange a consultation with one of our solicitors for divorce so that they can check if you have the necessary grounds on which to end your marriage and then the process can begin. You can expect a straightforward divorce process to take around four to six months; but, if you are using one of our solicitors for divorce, we'll be sure to keep you updated every single step of the way so that you have a rough idea of how long you can expect to wait. Please note that whilst we are proceeding with all divorce applications with our usual high priority, given the current climate, please be prepared to potentially experience some slight delays as we adjust our working services accordingly.
