One of the hardest decisions to make in a relationship is deciding whether your relationship has irretrievably broken down and issuing divorce proceedings. Whether you decide to issue divorce proceedings or are responding to your spouse’s application, it is vital that you understand your legal position in respect of both the divorce and matrimonial finances. Many people think that they can navigate through these proceedings themselves however, things are not always that straight forward and instructing a Solicitor can make all the difference.

Why Should You Hire A Family Solicitor

The first thing to remember is that Solicitors have a detailed understanding of the law and procedure surrounding the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973; the law that deals with divorces. All of our Solicitors have extensive experience with dealing with matrimonial matters, often achieving positive results for their clients. Having an experienced Solicitor advise you during your case can fill you with confidence and assurance whilst easing the pressure of proceedings.

With the introduction of no-fault divorces in April 2022, many divorces are now amicable with many cases ending with consent orders. Whilst this is brilliant news, it is important to note that even if you have reached an agreement with your spouse, it is essential that you have a well drafted Court order which protects your position. Here at Greens, we have many Solicitors who are able to assist you with drafting a consent order and the accompanying documentation. Should your order be drafted incorrectly, it could allow your spouse to apply for financial orders against you at any point in the future; even if you remarry! Therefore, it is imperative you seek advice.

The breakdown of a relationship results in many different issues arising in respect of children. Having a Solicitor representing you can allow you have expert advice in respect of children law proceedings. Quite often, deciding who the children should live with can be a sticking point which is often clouded by a lot of emotions. Having an expert Solicitor on hand can save you a lot of stress and bring about positive results in your case.
