Our Offices


The only way to begin divorce proceedings in England and Wales is to demonstrate the irretrievable breakdown of a marriage.

This is the only ground for divorce and must be proven by establishing one of five facts:
  • Adultery (when admitted)
  • Desertion
  • Two years’ separation (with agreement to divorce)
  • Five years’ separation
  • Unreasonable behaviour

The specialist divorce solicitors at Aaron & Partners in Chester and Shrewsbury have the experience and expertise you need to bring your divorce proceedings to a swift and satisfactory conclusion.

The Divorce Process

Once you’ve proven you have grounds for divorce, the process will usually take around six months. However, it is unusual to finalise the divorce once you and your partner have resolved any financial issues.

Our divorce lawyers in Chester and Shrewsbury can draft the necessary documentation to obtain your divorce. Where possible, we’ll try to agree the wording of the Divorce Petition with your partner to enable proceedings to move forward smoothly and without unnecessary delays.

Divorcing in Another Country

If one of you lives abroad, has lived abroad recently or is a foreign national, you may be able to obtain your divorce in another jurisdiction.

Nowadays, this can have enormous financial implications. Our expert divorce lawyers can advise you on which country will be the best for you to divorce in. It can be critical to act quickly to protect your position, so it’s important to take advice as soon as possible.

Our divorce solicitors in Chester and Shrewsbury have contact with specialist family lawyers in numerous jurisdictions and can liaise with them to ensure you make the right decision.
