The end of a marriage can be traumatic time for couples. Having to deal with heightened emotions as well as the stress of managing everyday lives and dealing with joint matters with former spouses including contact with children and financial settlements.
Courtyard Family Law Solicitors aim to help our clients through this difficult time by dealing with these matters in a sympathetic, efficient and professional manner.
Whichever party we are acting for, we will provide you with an excellent and understanding service.
Divorce proceedings can only be issued one year after the date of the marriage. If the marriage has broken down within the first year, the time leading up to this period can be used to start resolving matters concerning children and finances.
Generally, it takes between 6 to 12 months to complete a divorce and all other outstanding issues.
Divorce affects the parties rights under an existing will and you should therefore review your will and Courtyard Solicitors Wills and Probate Department will be able to advise you on this and prepare a will on your behalf. If you do not have a will, you should think about who you would like to leave your property to and have your will drawn up.
If you would like to discuss your options please don't hesitate to contact us.
