Do you ever play songs and hang on to the meaning in the lyrics? Do you find yourself looking for a sign each day about the way your life needs to move forward and take the robin hopping on your patio as a sign that your old life has passed? Whatever your motivation, there’s never an easy time to choose to get divorced and there’s never an easy way for it to happen, but here at Prentice Family Law, we have divorce solicitors in Guildford who can help you through the process. No matter where you are in the world, you can gain access to our services if you have been married in the UK. We assist with international and domestic law cases.
Your divorce is a legal process
When people get married, it can be a whirlwind of excitement – the flowers, the dress, the romance, the forever-after, but the reality is you and your betrothed are entering into a legally binding agreement. When you sign the register, you are signing the legal document that unites you in the eyes of the law and this carries certain legal responsibilities. When you choose to get divorced, there is a legal process that must be satisfied in order to withdraw from the contract you signed when getting hitched. As such, you may not be surprised to learn that there is a fair amount of paperwork to complete to satisfy the courts that you should be permitted to legally divorce.
Some clients choose to complete their paperwork to get divorced independently, alongside paying the court fee. This is a fairly straightforward process if you are feeling emotionally up to handling the pressure of taking this on yourself. However, our divorce solicitors in Guildford are on hand to take the pressure off you and complete this process for you. With their legal expertise and specialist knowledge, you can rest assured that all will be dealt with in an efficient and timely manner.
What else do I need to consider?
Whilst getting divorced can be fairly uncomplicated in itself, there are other matters that will need to be attended to. If you have children, arrangements will need to be made over who has custody of them, or if joint custody is the best outcome. We are here to support you through mediation to discuss such matters and to represent your wishes in court if an agreement can’t be reached. We will always put the needs of your children first and we will advise you about the fairest solution given your specific circumstances. We know that this will be one of the hardest things you will have to work through and we are here to help you get through it as smoothly as possible.
Equally, you will also need to make financial arrangements. Who gets the house or the car are all things that will have to be agreed upon and again, it is when you will need our divorce solicitors in Guildford to guide you through the legalities and support you through mediation or court.
How do I get the help I need?
We understand that you will be feeling anxious and want answers as soon as possible, so we are available for a free initial telephone consultation, where you can explain your specific circumstances and we can answer any questions you may have. We will also outline what legal steps need to be taken and how we can help.
