Divorce and separation
Even in the most seemingly amicable divorces and separations, there are still likely to be range of challenges that need to be overcome. The key to dealing these challenges often centres around finding the right team of legal experts to support you.
Our divorce and separation solicitors in Grantham are here to guide you through your divorce or separation with as little disruption as possible, allowing you to look ahead to the next chapter of your life with confidence.
Arrangements for children
In every scenario, your children will be your first priority. Sometimes however, making arrangements for your children in the wake of a divorce or separation can be very difficult.
We understand that child arrangements can prove to be an emotionally fraught affair.. Our child law experts in Grantham will strive to ensure that any arrangements you make are in the best interests of your children, intervening to diffuse any conflict where required.
Financial settlements can often prove to be one of the most contentious aspects of a divorce or separation. The main objective of any financial settlement will be to achieve a fair outcome, but what is considered to be ‘fair’ is likely to vary between both parties, which can lead to conflict.
Our divorce and financial settlement solicitors in Grantham use their expertise to help couples to negotiate an amicable agreement or, where it is necessary to do so, issue proceedings through the Court.
It is increasingly common for couples to live together, or cohabit, without being married. However, contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as a ‘common law marriage’, which means that cohabiting couples do not have the same legal rights as their married counterparts.
This can create various complications if a cohabiting couple separates. To help overcome this, cohabiting couples have the option of creating a Cohabitation Agreement, which sets out what will happen in the event of a future separation. Our Grantham team can support with this as well as any other related issues.
Pre and post-nuptial agreements
While not the most romantic prospect, creating a pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreement is likely to be a sensible step. A well-thought-out agreement will help to ensure that your future is financially secure no matter what happens.
Our family law solicitors in Grantham can work with you to create a pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreement, or review an agreement made by your partner, to confirm that your interests are protected and every eventuality is catered for.
Civil partnerships and dissolution
Much like divorce and separation, civil partnership dissolution can be distressing, time-consuming and emotionally draining.
Our Grantham family solicitors have specialist expertise in handling civil partnership dissolutions and are well-placed to guide you through your personal situation.
