At a time of marital breakdown it is important that you have support and assurance from those around you. Here at Johal & Co. we ensure that our clients have clear understanding of the divorce process and are supported every step of the way. The English legal system allows for a divorce to be filed under 5 different categories: Adultery; Desertion; Unreasonable Behaviour; Separation for 2 years with consent; and separation for 5 years. Our specialist solicitors are fully knowledgeable of the law on divorce proceedings, nullity and judicial separation and are therefore able to explore the best outcomes for every type of client. We aim to be particularly sensitive when children are involved and are capable of tackling any childcare concerns or contact issues.
The division of financial assets following a divorce can become a complex issue. With both parties striving to keep as much of their finances intact as possible it is essential that you are aware of your full entitlement. At Johal & Co you can feel at ease that our team of family solicitors are confident in their knowledge and ability to conduct financial dealings to your best interest. We aim to obtain a financial settlement which is fair, realistic and sufficient for every client’s future and well-being. We take in mind all your needs and concerns and strive to meet every one of them.

We are able to offer advice and assurance without any obligation to proceed further with your complaint.
