If you are thinking about divorce then you should consult a specialist divorce solicitor. Most solicitors appreciate the difficult and sensitive nature of divorce and will give you honest, straightforward legal advice. We can help you deal with the intricacies of the family courts if you have children and enable you to find the most agreeable solution to access and contact issues. Family law is a wide ranging subject that has seen many changes over the last few years. Nowadays divorce solicitors deal with cohabiting couples and gay and lesbian couples as well as married people.

When two people get married, neither of them expects to divorce in the future and people faced with this can feel completely isolated. A good solicitor knows that divorce, separation and family issues can be traumatic for those involved and should take a calm and unhurried approach to things. What most people want is a simple and affordable solution to their legal problems, not a long drawn out, expensive legal process. A good solicitor will do their best to guide you into finding the best outcomes for you and your family.

You may want a legal separation rather than a divorce and a divorce solicitor should explore the issues and the costs with you. If you’re unsure whether it is separation or divorce that is the best option for you and your partner a good lawyer can help you decide. In England and Wales, particularly if there are no children involved, it is possible to end a marriage without either partner having to attend court. If you have children it helps the process if you can agree contact and residency issues with your partner. Your solicitor will advise you of the best options if you do not want to attend the family court. If however, you cannot agree on contact and residency issues agreed then you will need to attend the family courts. A good divorce solicitor will do their best to agree the best options for you, your partner, and your children.

If your husband or wife is guilty of adultery you may want to look at divorce on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour. Adultery is very difficult to prove in court, especially if your husband or wife denies having an affair. Unreasonable behaviour covers a host of things that the court would deem unreasonable in a marriage. If you suspect your wife or husband of adultery even though they may deny having an affair, it can be seen as evidence of unreasonable behaviour. Lack of financial or emotional support is also listed in this category as is mental and physical abuse.

A good divorce solicitor will recognise that divorce is trying for everyone involved. You need to be frank with your solicitor and remember that it is his or her job to help you find the best and fastest solution to your problems. Divorce is expensive and it makes sense to try and shorten the process wherever possible.
