Divorce law

Divorce law is one of the largest and most common areas of law in Ireland. And divorce is on the increase - according to the census in 2011 there were more than 87,000 people legally divorced, which is more than twice the number in the 2002 census.

Interestingly, according to Irishcentral.com, Limerick has the highest divorce rates, with Dublin third. Galway County has the lowest rates.

If a divorce is likely, either because you are initiating it or your partner is, you will want to know several things.

  • How much will it cost?
  • What will happen to your children?
  • How will your possessions and assets be affected?

We have lots of pages which will give you information regarding the divorce process. Take a look and the information should help you.

It is possible to use the collaborative route, but remember that it is necessary for a divorce to be certified by a court of law.
