Telephone services for Divorce

Talk to our friendly advisors to help you through your divorce

Why a MyLawyer telephone divorce?

Getting divorced is often stressful and the steps required daunting and time-consuming. At MyLawyer we recognise this, so have created a telephone divorce service that lets you speak over the phone with a member of our legal team who will complete the necessary documentation on your behalf.

Documents in this area

  • Divorce for married couples (pack)

    Divorcing can be difficult, so we’ve done our best to make the process as quick and simple as possible. This pack includes the divorce petition required to start the process, in addition to statements in support of your divorce, an application for a decree nisi and an application for a decree absolute.

    Please note that the financial aspects of separating (how your home and other assets are split between you and your spouse) are dealt with separately from the divorce process. For help with this, please call us on 0800 612 2337.

  • Dissolution 'divorce' for civil partners (pack)

    Dissolving your civil partnership can be difficult, so we’ve done our best to make the process as quick and simple as possible. This pack includes the Civil Partnership Dissolution Petition required to start the process, along with the rest of the documents that could subsequently be needed. Additionally, the Civil Partnership Dissolution Petition can instead be used to apply for a Separation, which can divide your assets and responsibilities like a dissolution, while your civil partnership remains.

  • Change of name deed

    This document will allow you to change your name by one of two methods – deed poll or statutory declaration. You may have been using your new name for some time, but wish now to formally acknowledge your change of name, or you may wish to be known by your new name from this day forward. Guidance is included to help you choose which method is right for you.

    If you choose the deed poll option, you can choose to register (‘enrol’) this document with the Royal Courts of Justice. This document will provide the necessary documentation and guidance you need to do this.

    You can only use this document if you are 16 years or older.

  • Change of name deed for a minor

    You can use this to change the name of your child (i.e. under the age of 18), provided that you have parental responsibility for that child. You can't use this document if there is more than one other person with parental responsibility, or if there is only one other person with parental responsibility for but they don't agree to the name change.

    This document is only suitable for children who are British (or Commonwealth) citizens and permanently resident in the UK. If your child is aged 16 or over, they'll also need to agree to the change of name by signing in both their new and old names.

    Note that if your child is 16 or 17 and are (or has been) married or in a civil partnership, you'll no longer have parental responsibility for that child and you can't use this document.

  • Access to expert advice and guidance over the phone

Useful information

Getting Divorced

Getting divorced is a stressful time for couples. At MyLawyer we aim to make the process as easy and stress-free as possible by guiding couples through the required documents and forms.

How do I get an online divorce?

An online divorce offers a convenient and cost-effective way to go through the divorce process.

What is the divorce process?

The first step in a divorce process is to complete a 'divorce petition' referred to as a 'Divorce/judicial separation petition (Form D8)' and send it to the Regional Divorce Centre (DC) for your area.

What are the grounds for Divorce?

There is, in fact, only one 'ground' for divorce in the eyes of the law and that is that a marriage has irretrievably broken down.

What is a decree absolute?

A 'decree absolute' is the final order in the divorce process which confirms that your marriage has legally ended and that you are free to marry again.

What is a decree nisi?

A 'decree nisi' is the first of two 'orders' which you need to obtain to finally end your marriage.
