TV and showbiz media was alive this morning with news that Cheryl Fernandez-Versini had received a “quickie divorce”.

In the articles I read, this was presented as if Cheryl had been able to achieve something special due to her celebrity status when, actually, nothing is further from the truth. The reality is that every person in England and Wales can achieve a “quickie divorce” and, indeed, virtually everyone approaching the divorce courts receives exactly that.

When the media coined the phrase “quickie divorce” in the last century, it was to distinguish it from the old practice whereby divorces were contested and trials were held in open Court for a Judge to determine as to whether to grant a divorce based on the evidence supplied by either party. However, this has not been general practice for several decades and yet the media continues with this expression in any event.

So rest assured that, particularly, with a firm like Raydens, should you divorce, you too would enjoy the benefits of a “quickie divorce”
