Reaching Legal Agreements During a Relationship Breakdown
It can seem like a very difficult and challenging time to reach agreements when a relationship breaks down but it’s really important to reach legal agreements – especially in arrangements for finances and arrangement for children. In the ideal case – amicable solutions can be reached and changes to the law that are proposed next year coined ‘No-Fault Divorce’ aims to make it easier for amicable separations. The proposers of the law state that this law is aimed to take the ‘blame game’ out of divorce proceedings as it is often required to prove a breakdown of a relationship.
It’s therefore highly advised that you seek the advice and support of a family law solicitor or legal representative – regardless of if a separation or divorce is amicable or not. This is because of the fact that you will need access to relevant legal advice and you will want support on reaching financial agreements which will likely be the focal point of many divorce cases. Although some may not have children – arrangements for children need to be legally binding and this can often be a source of contention. Unfortunately in some cases – communications may have broken down so legal advice is highly recommended in these cases.
How Can a Family Law Solicitor Support You During Your Case?
Family law solicitors such as our expert team are always studying and reviewing cases that may be relevant to your case. Although every case is different, an experienced solicitor has more than likely supported a client in a similar situation to yourself and can therefore offer tailored and accurate legal advice. In situations in which it is difficult or unproductive to try and reach agreements – solicitors who are trained and qualified in mediation may be called upon to mediate and reach agreements. This is not designed to mediate and heal rifts in relationships – this is solely to reach a middle-ground and agreements made in mediation sessions can be made legally binding.
In some cases – mediation is not appropriate. Examples of this may include relationships that have broken down to a point where the conversation is not effective or productive or cases where it is not safe for meetings to occur (such as in cases of domestic violence or court order has been put in place to keep one party away from another.)
No-one should tolerate an abusive relationship. Domestic abuse covers emotional, financial, sexual, psychological and physical harm. You have options to apply to court for injunctions to protect yourself and your children. We always deal with these matters sensitively and respect your choices and confidentiality at every stage.
