Here at Prentice Family Law, we understand that getting a divorce is a very stressful procedure, and that’s why our divorce solicitors in Guildford are dedicated to making the process a lot smoother.
Advantages of getting legal help
Before we get into the details of what services we provide to our clients, you will want to know why it can be beneficial to get help from us. It’s not a legal requirement to get legal help from a solicitor, but it can be hugely helpful in the event that you and your ex-partner can’t come to an agreement or to make sure everything is done correctly and fairly.
Something our clients have expressed is that having help from one of our divorce solicitors in Guildford makes the process smoother. This is because we can help you with many aspects of a divorce, not just the paperwork. It can really take a load off when you don’t have to deal with all the legal proceedings alone.
If you are lucky enough to agree with your ex-partner about a divorce settlement, then you may think doing it alone is a good idea. But a lot of the time, people don’t realise that they are legally unprotected when settling a divorce themselves. For example, even if you divide your assets and finances fairly during the divorce, your ex-partner can claim against you at any point in life if it’s not overseen by someone who knows the law, such as our divorce solicitors in Guildford.
When you get a divorce, it not only affects you but also any children you may have; this means that you will want it to go as smoothly as possible for them as well. Unfortunately, ex-partners do not always agree on custody of children, and this is when you should seek legal help from us. If you fail to agree with a mediator first, we can help you to build your court case, as well as represent you to encourage a fair result.
Finances and assets
Finances are an important thing to deal with when it comes to getting a divorce, and as mentioned above, when you don’t use a solicitor to help you do this, you are unprotected if your ex-partner makes a claim against you in the future. This is why we are dedicated to helping you every step of the way when it comes to dividing your finances and assets. When the process is overseen and assisted by our solicitors, the division is legally binding, and, therefore, you are legally protected.
If you and your ex-partner have not lived in the UK for up to a year, we can still assist you with your divorce. We can also assist you if only one of you has moved out of the country, as this means there are still connections to the UK. We recommend that you seek legal help from us as soon as possible to ensure that we have the jurisdiction to help you.
