Divorce and Separation
Married and unmarried couples, divorce and financial settlements including common law partner agreements
When considering divorce, it can be difficult to know what to expect and how to approach a solution for legal separation. This is the same whether you are dealing with a breakdown of a marriage or a civil partnership, and no one makes either of these decisions lightly.
We believe it is important to look ahead and consider what options you have for a better future. When divorce is the right thing for you, it is more than likely to be what’s best for your family too.
At Worcester Family Law Practice, we will work with you through this difficult time, with sound legal advice and support. We will make sure that you are fully equipped to make an informed decision and guide you towards a positive future, especially if that means helping you prepare for a life after marriage.
Breakdown of a civil union or partnership
Divorce can be an extremely bitter process and that’s why we want to make sure that you have the support that you need. The divorce process is relatively straightforward but the practical issues that flow from this may not be. Child Arrangements and how the family finances are to be shared can complicate things. Our solicitors will see you through from beginning to end and will encourage you to do what’s best in the circumstances in order to achieve a fair, reasonable and, where possible, an amicable outcome.
The proceedings can take its toll on you and your family. We believe that an honest and transparent process of communication between you and your divorce solicitor is the best way to achieve a faster and more desirable solution.
Separating from your spouse and admitting that things are not working between you is upsetting and can be very stressful, which is why many people choose to opt for a Collaborative legal process; an alternative to the traditional proceedings of divorce. Please have a read of our Collaborative Law page and take the time to consider whether this is more suited to you and your family.
However, Collaborative Law is not necessarily for everyone. Every case is unique and requires careful consideration in order to find the best course of action based on your situation.
Whatever that situation might be, you can rest assured that as your solicitors, we will work hard alongside you to decide what is best for you and what will help you reach the resolution that you deserve.
It takes courage to strive for your own personal happiness, but you don’t need to go through this alone. How you decide to deal with what life has thrown at you will determine how you can continue to become the best version of yourself; not just for your own benefit but for those closest to you as well.
