Advice For Potential Plans For Divorce
With a new year comes new year’s resolutions – and for many, these include starting afresh in their relationship.
Divorce may be on your mind this new year if you’ve simply had enough of your unhappy marriage and want a new beginning. Or you might have decided to take action now after a stressful festive period that brought issues to the surface for you.
Whatever your reasons for considering divorce, make sure you approach it carefully and take your time to find the right solicitor to help you through the process.
How To Choose Your Family Lawyer
You want a family lawyer who promotes a fair approach and strives for a fair settlement – someone who puts the best interests of their client at the heart of their work and avoids unnecessary conflict.
Make sure your lawyer follows Resolution’s Code of Practice to ensure he or she does the following:
- Takes a constructive approach to family issues
- Contemplates the needs of the whole family
- Manages conflict and confrontation
- Supports families
- Encourages families to put their children first
- Helps families to understand the long-term impact of their decisions, on both emotions and finances
- Acts honestly and with integrity and neutrality
- Explains and guides clients through the different options available to them
You want a family law solicitor who chooses dispute resolution over court proceedings and views going to court as the last resort. Your solicitor should know their role is to make your situation easier if possible and to make the very best of a stressful and emotionally challenging situation.
Helping You With Your Divorce
Our specialist family law solicitors will work hard to fully understand your situation and the needs of your family, to ensure they can achieve the best possible outcome for you.
Supporting you at every step, we will advise you of all the options and not simply divorce – for some of our clients, legal separation is a better choice for them than divorce, for example.
We offer a free, initial consultation as this provides an opportunity to discuss your situation so we can gain full appreciation of your family life and provide you with tailored legal advice and guidance.
