I shopped about a fair bit before selecting Rooney Family Law to deal with my divorce. I found their website to be well laid out and very useful. The fact that they are transparent about their fees on their site appealed to me. It was fairly complex as it involved a business, pensions and other financial matters. I engaged their services and they negotiated hard to achieve a fair settlement on my behalf. They were in constant communication throughout the process.

Friendly professional advice and service.I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them.


After spending a small deposit on a house with another law firm i decided to change, and i am so glad that i did. Brian Rooney and his team, achieved my divorce in a seamless manner, even through a pandemic ! There a communication was swift, and in the manner that i preferred. I’m hoping i don’t require the use of a family law specialist again but should i do i wouldn’t hesitate in using Brian and his team.


I had Brian deal with my divorce, him and his team were excellent through the challenging times of Covid, giving good advice and getting the job done. A big thanks to them all and I would definitely recommend this company. Best wishes for a prosperous future and thanks 🙏 for their guidance throughout the process.

Divorce & Family Law Services

Divorce in Scotland can only be granted if the marriage has irretrievably broken down, and this can be attributed to one of four grounds: unreasonable behaviour, adultery, separation for over one year with mutual consent, or separation for over two years without consent:

  • Unreasonable behaviour
  • Adultery
  • Separation for over one year (with mutual consent)
  • Separation for over two years (without consent)


If you are seeking a divorce in Scotland, there are several types available that may not require you to provide reasons for the separation. For more information on each type of divorce, you can visit our website or consult with our legal experts to determine the best solution for your situation.

The Simplified Divorce is the quickest and most cost-effective option. It is available if you have been separated for over a year and have no children under the age of 16. Before filing, all financial matters between you and your spouse must be resolved as no financial claim can be made as part of this type of divorce.

Another option is the undefended Ordinary Divorce, which is suitable for couples with children under the age of 16 and no financial claims. This procedure is relatively straightforward and can be dealt with by a local sheriff court in about 10-12 weeks.

The divorce process is simpler if both parties can reach an agreement on the welfare of the children and the financial situation. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, mediation may be required before the case is decided by the courts.
