Divorce and Separation Issues and Help

Forbes Solicitors are skilled in all manner of Divorce Law issues and can advise you on a variety of subjects in the most cost effective way possible. We provide help on issues involving;

Divorce Advice - Before You Decide

If you feel that your relationship has irreparably broken down and are contemplating petitioning for a divorce (or dissolving a civil partnership) there is a lot to consider and it is not something that should be entered into lightly, particularly if there are children involved. It is wise to seek legal advice prior to deciding if a divorce is right for you in order to ensure you have the full picture and that there are no surprises further down the line.

Mediation before a Divorce

It may become apparent that talking things through with a mediator is the right choice for you, or a more informal, less final Separation Agreement is the better step. You may even decide on seeking legal advice that you are not ready for a divorce and would prefer to seek help to save your marriage. For this reason, legal advice is key in making sure you are taking the correct steps and are not making a mistake that could have damaging repercussions for you and any children.
