Divorce: Where to Start
Filing for divorce is always difficult, but we’ll do everything we can to make it easier, call us 01733 333333 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We know how hard it is to talk to someone else about your relationship, especially when feelings are running high.
Once you have taken the decision to separate from your spouse or partner this can be a distressing time. However, taking legal advice can make this process easier to understand and navigate.
When it comes to divorce proceedings, we believe in defusing the situation, not fanning the flames.
We aim for a solution that works for everyone – you, your partner and your children (if you have them) and we do our best to keep you out of court and minimise stress
We offer a fixed fee initial consultation about your situation and what you want to do next.
During this first meeting, we’ll explain all your options, and what we charge for our work.
If you decide to go ahead and apply for a divorce, we’ll be there to help you at every stage from then on.
How it works
We’ll usually recommend that you go through mediation as a first step. You will both sit down with an impartial third party to agree a financial settlement and/or arrangements for the future care of any children. (Divorce laws require you to try mediation before you go to court, unless you have to make an emergency application.)
If mediation does not proceed for any reason, there are several ways to proceed.
You can negotiate a settlement between your lawyers, with us acting on your behalf.
As a final step, if you can’t agree on how to divide up your assets, you can apply to the court for a financial order and ask the court to decide. The first hearing will usually be about what the assets are worth and whether further financial disclosure is required from you and your partner. The second will aim for a financial settlement, with the judge giving an opinion (not a judgement) on each side’s proposals. If you still can’t agree, the judge will decide for you at the third and final hearing.
However you reach agreement, we’ll be there to help you put it into practice – selling properties, transferring ownership and setting up pension sharing and so on. We’ll also apply for the decree absolute, which ends the divorce process.
If you require a fixed fee package, we can put you in touch with a member of the team who offers this service.
