At Forbes Solicitors, we understand that arranging financial matters in a divorce can be stressful and emotionally charged, especially if you have owned a business together or have assets overseas. Whatever your financial position, we always recommend that you acquire a court order for any financial agreements in place to protect yourself from a future claim.
Our child law solicitors in Accrington can help any family member - mother, father, guardian and grandparent - with a huge array of children law issues. Whether you need a solicitor for child arrangement applications, child maintenance agreements or for disputes relating to children, our expert solicitors can guide you through this complex area of law.

In the vast majority of cases, divorcing couples will need to see if they can resolve their differences through mediation. Mediation tends to be much quicker and less expensive than going to court, and it gives you and your spouse more control over the outcome. If your case goes to court, your situation will be decided by a judge. Our divorce mediation solicitors can advise you before your mediation meeting and can convert any agreements, made during mediation, into legally binding orders.
Family law covers a number of legal areas including:
This is not an exhaustive list. Family law can be a complex area of law and it is always recommended to instruct a solicitor to help you deal with these issues.
How much a divorce will cost will depend on your unique situation. The more complex a divorce the more it will cost, also you will incur further fees if you end up going to court. If your divorce is simple, straightforward and uncontested then we can offer a fixed fee service. If your matters are a little more complicated, our solicitors offer a tailored service that will meet your individual needs. We also take on legal aid cases.
How long a divorce takes will depend on the complexities of your case. However, typically most divorces take around 12 months on average.
