read more › The Divorce Petition, your Marriage Certificate, a Certificate of Reconciliation and the court filing fee need to be sent to the Court. These documents are sent to the other spouse (the Respondent). The Respondent has 8 days to file a receipt to the Divorce Petition. If the Respondent does not defend the Petition, (this is the position in the vast majority of cases), the Petitioner (the person who filed for the divorce) can then apply for the Decree Nisi. He/she does that by filing the application for Decree Nisi with the Court.

At John Hooper, we represent parents in respect of family law disputes relating to children, offering professional and sympathetic support throughout. Custody laws apply to all those observed as a "child" within the law of the corresponding country. A "child", in England and Wales, is a person who is younger than 18 years of age. The courts have jurisdiction to make Orders in respect of child custody laws (whether or not there are divorce proceedings).

read more › To try and resolve these issues by agreement, you need to speak with your solicitor about this point. They will draw up the appropriate application. However, before you get the case into the Court, you and the other parent will need to attend mediation to see if the dispute cannot be resolved by agreement. If that is not possible or if either parent refuses to attend mediation, the only option then is to apply to the Court.

read more › We have considerable experience in dealing with the complex financial issues that arise upon the breakdown of a relationship. In the event of the breakdown of the marriage, both parties often seek to reach a financial settlement agreement with regard to their assets and liabilities, and pensions and incomes. Sometimes that financial settlement agreement will be made into a Court Order as part of the divorce proceedings. On other occasions, in the event that the parties simply enter into a Separation Agreement, the Separation Agreement itself will contain details of the financial agreement.

read more › This is an agreement that you and your spouse will live separate and apart from each other into the future. It can also make provision for the arrangements that should be put in place in the future with regard to a divorce. A Separation Agreement is not binding upon yourself and your spouse. Either one of you can seek to get out of that agreement by making a new application back to the Court. It is then down to the Court to decide whether or not you should remain bound by that agreement.

read more › By instructing your solicitor to get you a settlement. That can be done by negotiation between your solicitor and your spouse's solicitor (or your spouse himself/herself). By making an application to the Court. Your evidence will be presented and your arguments will be heard by the Judge as will your spouse's. The Court will then make an Order which is binding upon the two of you. That Order is made after the Court has heard all of the evidence and the submissions of your legal representatives.

read more › We believe in resolving family law disputes by agreement providing that the clients' interests are protected fully and providing that the agreement is a fair one. Collaborative Law essentially involves both lawyers getting together with their clients to "collaborate" a settlement of both parties' claims against each other as a result of the divorce. The idea behind it is that both parties and their solicitors must make a special effort to encourage the clients towards an overall settlement in order to reduce the aggravation between the two of them and save costs.

We have built up a trusted network of foreign colleagues to assist us in representing our clients in these jurisdictions. The firm's Director, John Hooper, is a dual qualified New Zealand Barrister and Solicitor and also an English Solicitor. He has conducted cases involving not only British Nationals but also New Zealand Nationals, Australian Nationals and Irish Nationals. Other members of the firm have dealt with international law cases involving EU states and elsewhere.

read more › At the present time we are in a state of flux insofar as European Family Law and British Family Law is concerned. No one knows the outcome of the Brexit negotiations especially with regard to the obtaining and enforcement of Court Orders from one European country to another. Quite apart from that, there is also the issue of enforcing English Court Orders in non-European countries and vice versa. These are matters that need to have the input of specialist family lawyers in both key jurisdictions.
