Legal separation and divorce are rarely easy and straightforward; bringing out high emotion, stress and worry about the future, for you and any children involved.
You’ll be making life-changing decisions about your home, finances and children which is why it’s essential to work with a compassionate, understanding and professional team of divorce solicitors.
Our family lawyers will be able to advise on mediation, Collaborative Law and how any court proceedings will progress and they will keep you informed throughout every stage.
You’ll receive clear legal advice as to how long it is likely to take as well an initial estimate of the likely costs involved with this being regularly updated.
We can also offer Legal Aid in certain cases so if you feel you would be eligible then do let us know.
If you think your relationship has irretrievably broken down, call us for expert advice as to where you stand and then let us guide you through the divorce process and help you make a fresh start in life.
Caring, constructive and non-confrontational
Our team of divorce solicitors are members of ‘Resolution’, which is a group of around 5,000 independent Family Lawyers who are committed to easing the pain and financial cost of relationship breakdowns.
We follow a Code which encourages the lawyers acting for both parties to work towards a settlement of all disputes by adopting, where possible, a constructive and non-confrontational approach to ensure the best possible outcome for you and your family members.
Divorce and Children
If you have children with your partner then they need to have their interests equally protected and the Courts will see this as a priority.
All too often disputes as to where children should live and how often they should see their other parent arise when a relationship breaks down and can do so right up to the time your children become adults.
You will want the best interests of the children to be your main priority and our team can advise you as to how best they can be protected.
Our experience tells us that the more both parties can see that what is best for the children, the less will be the impact of your separation on them.
If your marriage has broken down, the emotional strain can be enormous. You may find that you need urgent action to be taken in order to protect your financial position.
It can be difficult to think of all the practical issues that need to be resolved in relation to individual and joint finances and any property owned by one or both of you.
This is when you need expert advice from a solicitor who can ensure that your position and long-term future is protected.
Our team of divorce solicitors can help and advise you on:
- Short & long-term financial support for you
- Financial support for your children
- Who pays for what
- What happens to the house
- What happens to savings, investments, pensions and other assets
We can work alongside, or recommend, accountants and independent financial advisors as well as the Courts should they be asked to make an order based on any settlement.
Our clients tell us that once they have spoken to us they feel clearer about what they are entitled to and more confident about their ability to deal with the journey.
