Civil Partnership and Divorce Solicitors Stockport

The decision to end a relationship can be the hardest decision that you will ever take. At Higgins Miller Solicitors we understand that. We specialise in family and matrimonial work and our team of lawyers understand the difficulties and questions that can arise when a person is thinking of separation divorce or civil dissolution.

The separation process will never be painless but we will try and ease the way. We can advise you about a separation deed, judicial separation, divorce or dissolution of a civil partnership identifying what may be best for you. If you decide to start a divorce or dissolution or if your partner has started the process we can help you advising about the options and steps to be taken.

We have set out some more detailed information about the divorce process here and for same sex couples in a civil partnership details about the dissolution process here.

It is a good idea to take legal advice before any separation, to help you understand your rights and the choices available to you. Our lawyers can meet with you to discuss with you the best ways to manage a separation, the consequences and rights both in relation to children and finances and the steps that you need to take. For this our fixed fee appointment of £50 +VAT is ideal. We will discuss matters with you in our office for up to one hour, including answering your questions and advise you on your rights and options. We will also provide you with a written summary of the matters discussed. Follow this link for further information on fixed fee first appointments.

Cost is of course a factor that has to be taken into account, which is why we introduced our competitive fixed fee divorce/dissolution scheme. For the person starting the divorce or dissolution (the petitioner) details are here. For the person who has received divorce or dissolution papers details are here.
