We are available to guide you through the paperwork and procedure of the divorce itself and the issues relating to finances and children which run along side it.
When divorce proceedings begin we hope that you and your spouse are able to reach an agreement as to the settlement of financial matters. We will advise on a likely outcome if the matter proceeds to Court, assist you with negotiations and if appropriate, refer you to mediation to assist you. We will then assist with finalising financial aspects through the Court by way of a Consent Order within the divorce proceedings.
If agreement cannot be reached, and an application to the Court is necessary, a District Judge will try and assist you in reaching an agreement. If this is unsuccessful a District Judge can ultimately decide how the assets of the marriage are to be distributed. We will work with you through the Court proceedings to try and reach settlement at every opportunity where it is appropriate.
