Divorce Solicitors Brighton & Hove

Crosby & Woods specialise in Divorce Law in Brighton and Hove, however our clients come from a wide range of geographical areas due to the expertise, sympathetic approach and flexibility of our solicitors.

If you feel that your marriage has irretrievably broken down and you have been married for more than one year then it may be possible to divorce your spouse based on one of five facts:

  • Adultery
  • Unreasonable behaviour
  • Desertion
  • You have lived apart for more than 2 years (consent from both parties needed)
  • You have lived apart for more than 5 years (consent not needed)

In most cases, once your divorce solicitor has heard your initial instructions we can conduct your matter via letter, email and telephone, thus reducing the need for you to visit our offices in Brighton & Hove. 

An uncontested, basic divorce usually takes between 3 and 6 months to finalise. If you have moral or religious objections to divorce then there are other alternatives available to you such as judicial separation and separation deeds.


"Just a quick message to say how pleased I have been with the service I’ve received from Gemma Thew, who handled my Divorce & Will. She has by far exceeded my expectations in every aspect."

"A divorce situation is never easy and can involve having to share some very personal stuff with someone you have never met before.  I personally found Marie very supportive and understanding and whilst being very professional was also always patient and attentive.  I would not hesitate to recommend Marie to someone in my position."
