Divorce Advice Cardiff
Divorce is the legal process of ending a marriage and legal representation is valuable as well as comforting in this difficult time. We can advise you on the process or represent you through the process to ensure that you have the best and fairest representation possible. Divorce may also incorporate difficult factors such as disputes over children and financial settlements. Financial settlements exist to find the best way to end your marriage financially. This as well as disputes over children is one of the most critical issues and it is very much advised that you seek legal advice regarding this issue. As a breakdown of a relationship is a stressful time, it is also advised to seek our advice due to the fact that we can help you through this difficult process. In terms of legal marriage services, we can also advise you and draw up a pre-nuptial agreement which helps bring clarity into a dispute if your relationship was to breakdown. These agreements can set in stone where you stand in the eyes of the law and within future disputes if they were to happen. We can represent you across all disputes through mediation but also through court proceedings if a dispute has to go to a court of law.
Financial Agreements in Family Law
The April edition of our family law solicitors article discusses how family law affects your finances and which arrangements you can make for your finances by working with family law solicitors.
Although family law arguably primarily deals with family aspects such as divorce and separation, financial arrangements are an important part of family law. In terms of a separation case or a situation in which one is facing divorce, the financial aspects of your separation are supported by family law and potentially dictated by family law. Making financial arrangements is often one of the most disputed areas of separations and family law solicitors can help you reach arrangements that are a fair resolution for you and your family. Considerations for this include if you will be paying bills after your separation as well as what additional costs you will have to pay after your separation or divorce. Financial arrangements are not just limited to a separation, you can make financial arrangements before a marriage to ensure that arrangements are made in the highly unfortunate and stressful situation of a divorce or separation. Pre-nuptial agreements are examples of this as you are able to set out pre-marriage arrangements to ensure that there is agreement and peace of mind should separation occur. This sets a legally binding agreement which must be adhered to when a separation occurs (as per the agreement.) But what other arrangements can be reached and are protected by family law and how can a family law solicitor advise you in your case?
Additional Asset Disputes
Although financial disagreements may occur, there’s also other issues that may occur with arrangements for assets such as properties and other possessions. This again along with making arrangements for children are one of the most important factors in making arrangements after a separation or divorce. Reaching arrangements that are fair to both parties is of the utmost importance and this is where family law solicitors become very important during this process. When you own a property together then property disputes can often arise about how to best deal with separation of property or properties after separation or a divorce. Our experienced family law solicitors can advise and support you on reaching agreements with assets, financial agreements and agreements regarding your children. We understand that this is a highly difficult time for your family and that you may have a number of emotions whilst trying to reach one of the most difficult decisions of your life. Our solicitors can support you and offer impartial advice to ensure that you are looking at the whole picture and are able to reach informed decisions (both legally and emotionally.) If you are experiencing an issue or facing a divorce or separation and are unsure about your options and how to proceed then we highly recommend that you contact our solicitors today by enquiring with an online form on our website or telephone our team directly now on: 029 2039 6087.

Working With an Experienced Family Law Solicitor
Working with an experienced family law solicitor can help put your mind at ease when dealing with the difficult situation that you may be facing. Having the support of an experienced family law solicitor not only offers you access to their wide range of knowledge on family law, they can also advise you should particular difficulties arise. Although some separations or family law issues may be more simple to resolve, there may be other issues in which both parties do not agree on certain arrangements. This is when a family law solicitor can either act as a neutral mediator or as an adviser to try and reach an amicable solution. If an amicable solution cannot be reached then agreements will most likely have to be agreed by the court. This is where an experienced family law solicitor can also advise you by preparing you for your case in court and by discussing all of the options that are available to you. Wherever possible, we will try to avoid having to attend court as this can amount to large legal fees and increased stresses on relationships after a family law case has been resolved. However, it is important to note that in some situations, attending court to reach an agreement that is legally binding may have to be the only course of action (especially if abuse or the safety of those involved is in jeopardy.)
Our experienced team has many years of experience specialising solely in family law. This allows us to offer specialist advice in regards to your case to help you with any issues that you may face. Our team also meet frequently to discuss case details which ensures that you have a full team of family law solicitors supporting you during your claim rather than just one specialised family law solicitor.
