Sittingbourne Solicitors for Divorce
Contemplating getting divorced is inevitably very stressful. In an ideal world you would deal with it without involving the extra stress and cost of employing solicitors. Occasionally this is possible if everything is agreed between you and your spouse (husband or wife), but even then the paperwork can be daunting. If this is the case then we can help and can quote a Fixed Fee to get the Divorce through the Court. This will not cover financial arrangements or arrangements for any children involved but we can help you with these things after the divorce is finalised.
If, on the other hand, you and your partner cannot agree, then it is a good idea to have a solicitor on hand to help. Just ploughing ahead with no legal advice can end up being a very costly and unsatisfactory route to take. Very often we can help you to come to an agreement and then we will just help with the paperwork.
If, however, no agreement can be reached and it is necessary to get the Courts to help make decisions we will advise you, liaise with the Court and your spouse or their solicitor. This can be a fairly costly exercise but it can, unfortunately, end up being much more costly not employing a solicitor and therefore not getting the right advice.
In either case, the sort of things that you are going to need to think about will include:
- What are your grounds for Divorce? For instance, is there unreasonable behaviour involved or have you been separated for some time?
- If children are involved, who will they live with? What contact arrangements will be made?
- Will your home have to be sold, and, if not, who will keep it
- Who should keep which possessions
- Who will pay for what
