Divorce and Separation
Filing for a divorce can be incredibly difficult.
There’s a large amount of paperwork, you’ve got to find a representative to help go through the proper divorce process, and you may even have the family to think about.
At Gross and Co, we understand all of this. Our experienced team will be able to assist you with the paperwork and take you through the process. They’ll even offer you the best, clearest advice possible for your situation at home.
No case is ever the same, which is why we take the time to discuss things with you at length.
“Our job is to provide you with a safe harbour. During stormy periods of your life, we’ll offer clear and concise advice, to help ease the emotional strain.”

Naturally, there are variables when filing for a divorce and we will work through these for you. For examples on how we may work, below are things to consider;
Is it a Contested or Uncontested Divorce?
On some occasions, a divorce is fairly straight forward, however, sometimes a divorce can go the other way. Gross and Co. will be able to assist with taking you through both processes.
If a divorce is contested, it’s not possible to know how long the case will last. Our task is to listen and understand what your situation is before offering you advice on moving forward. The way we handle these cases can vary, though rest assured that we will provide a first class service.
If you’re in a position whereby the divorce is uncontested, we believe that the process can be concluded within four to six months. The procedure is relatively straightforward and no-one should have to attend Court. Of course, there can be anomalies, but we aim for speed and efficiency with this process. Should all parties work at the same speed and there are no delays at Court, this can be provided. All matters must also be agreed by the parties themselves.
Fixed Fee Divorce
If you find that a straightforward, uncontested divorce applies to you, we can offer a fixed fee. Our fixed fee has no hidden extras – we tell you in plain English what the fee covers. This will appear on one sheet of A4 paper. Our expert team will aid with answering any questions you have and we’ll leave no stone unturned in this process.
Have you filed for an “Internet Divorce”?
It is natural to look around for the cheapest price.
Nowadays it is possible to buy a divorce on the internet. Many people can be trapped by this and they may not necessarily get the service they require. Companies set out guidelines to make the divorce process look easy, however, in reality, most simply offer a DIY kit. This requires you to complete a number of complex forms and deal with the Court themselves – not easy.
Our divorce lawyers act for many clients who have attempted the ‘£99 internet divorce’ route. To their cost; the old adage “you get what you pay for” is very true in these situations. As much as the idea of a cheap divorce is tempting, it is certainly not recommended.
Dissolution of Civil Partnerships
We specialise in Collaborative law, which is a constructive way of resolving problems between civil partners.
Obtaining dissolution of a Civil Partnership is very similar to divorce proceedings. This means that we are well placed to advise civil partners in this area of law. We aim to minimise the need for contested, costly and time-expensive Court proceedings about money and/or children. You should visit our Collaborative law section for more information on this.
If you would like to know more about the divorce process or how we can help your marriage situation, we ask you to get in touch with us.
