How long is it going to take?
There is no precise figure, because every case is different, but a divorce process will take around four to six months to finalise if there are no major complications that need to be dealt with through the courts or looked into by our team.
One of the most difficult points in every divorce proceeding is the separation of finances and assets. Both parties need to consider what their financial future looks like and through our experience we find that this is a very emotional and heavy topic to discuss.
We help everyone involved by adhering to a code of practice throughout proceedings that will keep us on track and professional during these times. By ensuring that discussions are non confrontational and constructive, many people find that they are better off both financially and emotionally.
You do not even have to interact with the other party if you feel this is the best way forward for you. We simply act upon your instruction whilst providing you with professional advice and support from the information we have on your situation and the knowledge we have gleaned through our years of study and previous clients. You are able to express your opinion and your feelings in a safe environment and we would consider your wishes in a professional way. We will always aim to help you to achieve your goals throughout the process.
What about my children’s needs?
When you choose us to be your advocate throughout this difficult time, we help you to put the needs of your children first. By being a part of a group called Resolution, we have the tools and education to ensure that we can provide you with a negotiation environment that is non confrontational, safe and able to prioritise the children.
By simplifying the divorce proceedings as much as possible for our clients and by taking the time during the initial consultation to fully understand the situation, we can listen to your needs and act accordingly in order to do our best to meet them. We have seen that the smoother the divorce proceedings are, the quicker the separating couple is able to move on with their lives.
Many of our clients come to us with a lot of questions regarding their children in a separation and are desperate to make sure that there is as little impact on their lives as possible. By finding a solicitor who also has the children’s best interests as a significant factor, all of the parties involved can work towards the same goal.
An amicable and mature separation will always have the least impact on a child and if it is possible, parents should aim towards this goal. It is best to not feel guilty about separating as you are both doing what you believe to be best for the family as a whole. Taking the time to talk to your child and assuring them goes a long way, as does aiming to minimise any disruptions to their daily routine throughout the separation process.
It’s important to find the best fit
You should always seek to find a solicitor that is right for you. If you feel comfortable in speaking with your lawyer then they will be able to alleviate any anxiety that you have throughout the process. It is natural to feel nervous and overwhelmed when ending a relationship especially when there is a lot to resolve.
