Here at Prentice Family Law, we know how devastating it can be when going through a separation, especially when children are involved. It may feel like there is nobody that you can turn to that understands. That is why, when it comes to your case, we make sure that our divorce solicitors in Weybridge do whatever they can to secure a positive outcome for you and your children.
Going through a separation can be difficult for everyone that is involved, including children, but sometimes children’s needs can end up being overlooked. We make sure that your children are the priority, and we have over 20 years of experience when it comes to practising family law. If you are going through a separation and want to seek legal advice, then we recommend that you arrange to have a free consultation appointment with one of our advisors. This appointment will allow us to gain more of an in-depth understanding when it comes to your situation, and we will inform you of how we can help you going forwards.
Separations can be time-consuming, stressful and upsetting
When you are legally separating, it is usually an extremely lengthy process. There can often be delays for various reasons, and sometimes circumstances can change incredibly quickly due to new information coming to light and several other reasons. Our divorce solicitors in Weybridge will ensure that you are always kept completely up-to-date with what is happening in your case. We will alert you of any possible delays and explain why these delays are happening, keeping you informed of any changes as soon as they happen. Having a legal advisor represent you throughout your separation will reduce some of the pressure that you are under, as well as free up some of your time so that you can focus on getting back to normal after your separation.
Parents and grandparents still have rights
Unfortunately, when it comes to getting separated, a lot of parents and grandparents do not know their rights, and both they and their children suffer for it. Our divorce solicitors in Weybridge will always put your children first. This means making you aware that both parents and grandparents have a legal right to have regular contact with their child/grandchild unless specified otherwise by a legal authority.
If your ex-partner has been denying you the right to spend time with your child, then we will do whatever we can to change this and put legal documents in place to make sure that you get regular contact with your child. Sometimes we recommend mediation, as this gives both parents a chance to sit down and discuss what they want for their child in a safe environment with legal advisors present to document the situation. Unfortunately, not all situations can be resolved through mediation, and in some circumstances, your case may go to trial. If this is the case, then we will still be able to represent you in the courtroom and even appear there on your behalf.
