We know that dealing with the end of a marriage by a divorce or separation can be very upsetting. We’re here to help you navigate the process and support you to make decisions that are right for you.
Making the decision to end a relationship is rarely easy and, in some occasions, you may need specialist legal advice to ensure the process is handled fairly. We can support you to get a legal or judicial separation, to formally separate from your partner without getting divorced or ending your civil partnership.
A Separation Agreement, whilst not a legally binding Agreement identifies your intentions and can be highly persuasive if there is any later dispute over financial claims. Agreements can set out;
Should divorce or dissolution follow, separation agreements can also help keep legal costs down by avoiding length court proceedings.
It is essential to seek legal advice when drawing up one.
Whatever your issue, we are committed to offering you a service which minimises the emotional and financial impact upon you, with your interests and those of your family coming first.
In some areas of family law, we offer an introductory meeting with a member of our legal team. This meeting is free and designed for you to get to know our firm, your solicitor and to discuss your case. By completing this initial meeting, you can make an informed choice about how you want to move forward to get the best results.
This initial meeting is up to 30 minutes long and free of charge. This meeting is not designed to offer advice. If specific advice is required and you’d like to continue past the 30 minutes, please let your solicitor know and you may be able to carry on into a more detailed consultation. This time will be chargeable, but your solicitor will tell you how much it will be.
