We can help you through
Our family law guide to Divorce provides information about divorce and the procedure. It is important to seek independent legal advice prior to commencing divorce proceedings and prior to applying for the Decree Absolute of divorce. You should also seek advice if you are considering remarrying, particularly if your financial claims on divorce have not been resolved and an order of the Court made.
How we help to make it less stressful
Divorce can be an extremely emotional and stressful time. At Coffin Mew we recognise that some people may require additional support at this difficult time. We have close links with Divorce Coaches who can offer divorce life coaching specifically aimed at divorce. We also have links with counsellors and therapists who can work with individuals or couples.
All of our lawyers are members of Resolution and subscribe to the code of conduct. We will discuss with you the approach you wish to take in your divorce and provide a service to suit your needs.
We offer a full range of services including mediation and collaborative family law as well as traditional litigation.
We are with you all the way
It may be that you are able to reach an agreement amicably, particularly if both your financial affairs are simple and straightforward. Reaching agreement between yourselves can cut down the costs involved where solicitors negotiate an agreement and can also eliminate a lot of stress. However, if your financial situation is more complex or indeed if agreement cannot be reached then you should consider engaging solicitors to negotiate on your behalf.
Even if you have reached agreement it is important that you take legal advice to ensure that the agreement you are entering into is fair and reasonable. It is also important that your agreement is legally binding to minimise the risk of your partner trying to back out of the agreement, months, or even years later, when you thought matters had been concluded.
