How can you help me get divorced?
While some people choose to get divorced without the support of a solicitor, many clients feel reassured having a legal professional completing the relevant paperwork for them. There are certain things that must be done to ensure that things progress as you would wish them to. By allowing our divorce solicitors in Guildford to take control of the legalities, you can rest assured that everything will be handled efficiently and in a timely manner.
What else can you do to help?
Alongside getting divorced, you will probably also need support with coming to an agreement about finances. Who gets the toaster and who gets the rug may sound trivial while you’re dealing with the emotions of your relationship ending, however, you will need to have divorce solicitors in Guildford to represent your wishes and ensure that you get a fair outcome. While it may not come down to the toaster, if an agreement can’t be reached, you will need to have mediation. Mediation is compulsory from the outset for an initial meeting, but if an agreement isn’t reached, more sessions may be required. The solicitor mediating won’t give legal advice and so it is important that you have your own divorce solicitor to seek advice from.
The same issues can be applied to making arrangements for children. You will need to attend a mediation session for this and then we are here to give you advice about how things progress. Ultimately, we always put the needs of the children first to ensure that their rights are also protected and we get the best outcome for them. The mediator will deal with both parties, however, by having your own divorce solicitor from our firm you will have dedicated counsel when you need it most. We are here to represent your wishes and do the clear thinking for you, when you are feeling emotional.
