Breaking up is never easy. And if you’re a couple thinking about getting divorced, there may be finances and children to consider and the situation may be emotionally charged.

To give you the support you need, The Co-operative Legal Services offer a range of solutions from a DIY (self-help) divorce to our experts looking after you every step of the way, helping you through any court proceedings, whether you’re the one bringing the divorce (the Petitioner) or you’re the person being divorced (the Respondent).

If you’re unsure whether you’re ready to divorce or have been married for less than a year, we can explain the legal alternatives, such as legal separation or a separation agreement, as well as other things you may want to consider including counselling and therapy.

Types of divorce

We offer two types of divorce service:

Managed divorce

In a managed undefended divorce, we will prepare all the papers for you, whether you are the Petitioner or the Respondent, and guide you through the legal process. 

DIY (self-help) divorce

Our self-help or DIY divorce service gives you a range of options, from providing you with the necessary forms and a guide for completing these to checking your forms and giving any further advice on the procedure.
