A divorce will bring the marriage to an end but it does not automatically deal with any financial aspects that flow from the divorce.
Reaching a financial settlement can be difficult especially when the future can seem uncertain. There are often associated issues, such as where the children will live, which is relevant to the finances.
We view Court as the last resort and encourage parties to reach agreement wherever possible. We can refer clients to mediation. We also negotiate with the other party or their solicitors to try to reach a fair agreement that all parties find acceptable. If it is not possible to reach an agreement, we are experienced specialist solicitors able to assist you in dealing with all steps of the Court procedure. We are here to guide and support you every step of the way.
If an agreement is reached we recommend this is recorded in writing and approved by the Court in a 'Consent Order'. This is then legally binding and provides certainty for the future.
There are many factors to consider and we believe it is important to obtain legal advice at an early stage. We are always here to assist you at any stage and offer free initial advice and support from a Solicitor specialising in this area of law.
If you are thinking of divorce or separation it is important to get the right advice at an early stage. We can talk you through the process and consider the practical implications for you and your family.
There can be a great deal of emotional stress when a relationship ends and dealing with all the associated legal issues can be added pressure. You are likely to have a lot of questions on matters that require immediate attention and we are happy to assist with any initial queries that you may have.
