Divorce and Separation

Getting a divorce can present a significant struggle, not just for you and your partner, but also for your children and even other members of your family.

It’s a difficult time for everyone, and you might feel like you don’t know where to start with securing the support and advice that you need. Addressing the legal issues needs to be one of your top priorities, and understanding everything about the divorce process is important.

Our solicitors take a sensitive and compassionate approach to help you with your separation to make the process easier. We make sure that you can understand all of the legal issues involved in a divorce and aim to help minimise conflict for a smoother journey.

Children

When your relationship comes to an end, ensuring that your children are protected is vital. One of the most important things is to make arrangements concerning where your children will live and who will care for them.

Putting the needs of your children first is easier when you have the right legal support. Our team will help you to shield your children from conflict and protect them as much as possible while helping to put their needs first.

We give you the legal support that you need to achieve the best results for your children and for you. The health and happiness of your children are what come first during and after a separation.

Finances and Real Estate

Separating from a partner often means untangling more than your relationship. Your finances and property are often combined too, and separating them can present a complicated issue. Dealing with it in the most efficient and effective way possible is important if you want to avoid a costly procedure.

Our family solicitors can handle a range of problems relating to money and property, using our training and years of experience to deliver excellent service and help you secure the outcome that you want.

We can work with other legal experts, such as conveyancing, to help make the process of transferring property and other assets smoother. We can also help with creating new wills, which is often a necessity after a divorce or separation.

Cohabitation

Choosing to live together without getting married is a popular decision these days. However, if you choose not to get married, you won’t have the same legal rights that a married couple has.

It’s important to understand what rights you do and don’t have as an unmarried, cohabiting couple so that you are aware of what you need to consider both in a relationship and if the relationship should ever end.

We can help you to understand your rights and what they mean for you, as well as advise you if your relationship comes to an end. We can create a Cohabitation Agreement for you so that you have a written document of what living together means.

Prenuptial Agreement

When getting married, many people want to take the practical and pragmatic approach by thinking about what could happen if the marriage ends in divorce. Although divorce rates are lower than they once were, many marriages still end in divorce, and it’s a good idea to think about what to do if this occurs.

At one time, prenuptial agreements were difficult to defend, but the courts are now better at dealing with them. However, drafting them correctly is essential, which is why it’s important to have legal assistance to create these documents. We can offer expert advice and draft an agreement for you that matches your requirements.

Domestic Violence

Sometimes, divorce and separation might be complicated by the issue of domestic violence. Domestic violence includes physical and emotional abuse, and a 2015 law also brought in new legislation concerning coercive control.

Our family solicitors have training and experience in dealing with cases involving domestic violence. We can provide assistance not just with separation and divorce but also with seeking support, obtaining an injunction and having an abusive partner removed from your home. We are also able to connect you with support services so that you can access counselling, support and accommodation in a shelter if you need it.

Our family law services help you to deal with a range of issues relating to marriage, divorce, child custody and more. Contact us today by calling 01243 945054 to find out how we can help you.
