A divorce is one of the most difficult and emotional life events a person can go through. Whether you are thinking of getting a divorce or have received divorce papers, expert legal advice is needed to protect your assets and ensure a fair settlement. A divorce can have a major impact on your finances; however, the correct support and expertise could help you navigate a divorce successfully.
There are many factors that can lead to disputes during divorce proceedings, although in many situations the dividing of assets can cause the most difficulty. For example, if a family home exists the asset can be sold and any profits divided between the two individuals, however, it isn’t always as straightforward as this.
If one person wants to remain in the property, an agreement needs to be reached so that the value can be shared. Another common cause of disputes is the involvement of children, where parenting rights and child maintenance agreements need to be arranged.
This is naturally an emotional process, however our team can guide you through a series of mediation steps to resolve any disputes outside of the courts.
With our support and guidance, we aim to help guide our clients through their divorce, so that they can reach the outcome they need. Our team of specialist divorce solicitors have the experience and understanding to offer a personalised and practical approach to your divorce. Our priority is helping you achieve the ideal result for your best interests. To find out more about our divorce services, please contact our team of divorce solicitors today.
To file for a divorce, you will need to prove that the marriage has broken down. There are many reasons which can be cited, such as unreasonable behaviour, adultery, desertion or being separated for more than two years. To formally begin divorce proceedings a divorce petition form needs to be filed. The divorce can proceed if both parties agree, however, if a dispute arises which cannot be resolved amicably the case may need to be taken to court.
A court hearing can be a stressful, costly and time-consuming process, so our aim is always to avoid a court hearing wherever possible. However, if the divorce does need to go to court, we will effectively plead your case and defend your rights, so that you are guided through the entire process.
The outcome of a divorce can impact the rest of your life, especially when it comes to finances and relationships with children. To ensure the best possible outcome from the divorce it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible.
Our team understand the intricacies of divorces and know that in many cases there are complex situations to handle.
Our aim is to aid an amicable settlement while also being cost effective. If your spouse is unwilling to offer a fair settlement, we can also protect you with our expert legal guidance.
