Divorce Bristol Solicitors
If you are considering divorce or separation, it can be a stressful and difficult experience changing much about tour circumstances.
Our Bristol solicitors are seasoned divorce lawyers who are ready to assist you and walk you through every step of the separation or divorce process. As professional divorce lawyers, we want to achieve the best possible results for you, so we will exert every effort to make the process as amicable as possible.
Before deciding to cohabit and forego the prospect of marriage or a civil partnership, it is prudent to seek advice on the implications of cohabitation on property ownership.
However, not all people take this path and fail to prepare a cohabitation agreement designed to provide more clarity to both parties’ rights and obligations should their relationship fail.
If you are separating as cohabiting partners, you may require advice on child arrangements and financial matters, including what property rights you each may have and whether you have any claims for financial and housing support when there are children involved.
Our solicitors in Bristol can provide legal guidance on these areas and other forms of cohabitation disputes that can be resolved through mediation or solicitor-to-solicitor negotiation techniques or court proceedings, if necessary.
People who have been through a divorce or separation are familiar with the difficulties and complexities that come with making decisions in matters involving children and their well-being.
These include arranging for childcare, child contact and residence issues.
Wherever possible, our child law solicitors Bristol take a non-confrontational approach to resolving legal disputes concerning children. This way, we will not only be protecting your rights and the best interests of your children, but also assisting you in maintaining positive relationships.
Financial settlement is usually the most difficult aspect to navigate after a divorce or separation. The reason of course is that there are frequently sensitive issues at stake, such as how much each party will provide as payment for maintenance and child support; how assets are to be divided; who gets the family estate or cars; and other financial matters, including pensions.
Any settlement agreement should include a section on ancillary matters that addresses issues, such as: who is responsible for outstanding debts (mortgages, loans, etc.); whether either party has decided not to make private pension contributions during the course of the divorce proceedings; establishing the ownership of investments made jointly or jointly owned property overseas.
Most cases can be settled without the need for contentious court proceedings. Our Bristol solicitors have extensive experience dealing with all types of financial remedies. We can advise you on realistic options as well as assist you in arriving at a settlement that is fair and protects everyone’s rights, needs, and interests.
