Reducing Conflict During the Divorce Process

As the divorce process can cause a great deal of conflict and disagreement, it’s important to take steps to reduce conflict and to try and reach an agreement before having to go down routes such as having to take a relationship breakdown to court. It’s highly important to also consider how Family Law applies to your case and how this may change your situation. Grounds for divorce are an example in which you will need to consider family law regarding your rights to divorce. A divorce cannot be filed until a couple has been married for one year and the person who starts proceedings must prove that the marriage has broken down and this is irreversible. You must also cite one reason for divorce including adultery, desertion, separation for 2 years with both parties agreeing to divorce or 5 years which does not require the other partner to agree for divorce. This has received recent attention in the media with ’no fault’ reforms being called for by organisations and Petitioners which would seek to move away from having to blame another person for a relationship breakdown and could lead to a more amicable separation and divorce.

Support & Guidance During a Divorce

Support and guidance during a divorce is also a very beneficial aspect as there are a lot of areas to consider and emotions may be understandably running high. The guidance and support of a family law solicitor is highly beneficial as you have a professional solicitor or team of solicitors to support you during this difficult time. There also are updates within legislation which may require up-to-date legal advice which a family law solicitor can provide to you. Aiming to reduce conflict during the divorce process is also important to aim for an amicable resolution as well as to reduce costs. Lengthy disputes may lead to increased animosity and hefty legal fees and this is why family law solicitors aim reduce conflict and try to reach an amicable resolution for both parties. Of course this may not always be the result but it’s important for to attempt every means of resolution before having to resort to a dispute in court.
