We understand that this process can be emotionally challenging and can take a lot of your personal time but we are here to help you and your child!
Our services cover the entire spectrum of family law. We deal with divorce and separation, financial settlements, mediation services, prenuptial agreements, domestic violence, and can help overseas clients as well.
Agreed divorce is one of our specialities which we offer. Our fees are fixed for an agreed divorce: A £750 plus VAT and court fees of £410.
These divorces can take up to 5 months to resolve. In the case of any financial issues or children being involved, it is absolutely possible for the process to take longer.
Sometimes one of the party is not agreeable to the divorce and things can get really complicated. If this is the case, then there is a petition that needs to be followed and it might be time-consuming and really costly. The most common issue that people contest divorce is often the division of assets between the two parties especially if children are involved. Give us a call and we will advise you if you fear that your spouse might be contesting a divorce.
Many people come into a marriage with their own assets. They feel like these should be protected and stated clearly that upon divorce these same assets remain to the specific party. Prenuptial agreement is quite common among wealthy marriages because of fear that one day if divorce arises, you could simply lose everything that you had prior to the marriage. Protect your assets because it only seems logical to keep what is yours prior to the marriage.
