Whilst applying for a divorce is a relatively simple process, the assistance of an experienced family lawyer can be invaluable – whether your separation and divorce is amicable… or not.
How a good family lawyer will help you divorce sooner and more smoothly
Even if you are both in agreement about the distribution of your assets or parenting arrangements – a family lawyer will help ensure your divorce goes smoothly, all the loose ends are tied up and the distribution of assets are legally finalised. All too often we see problems arise one or two years after a divorce, because Property Settlements or Parenting Arrangements aren’t documented and filed properly.
If you and your partner can’t agree on how property should be split, parenting arrangements or financial support matters – the support and advice we can provide will allow you to understand exactly how the law applies to your situation and what you could or should be entitled to. Unfortunately, family law is incredibly complex and just because your friend ‘Jane’ got x, y and z, or ‘Bob’ ended up paying spousal support – doesn’t mean you will.
