Family law solicitors' crucial role during a divorce process


By Juan Palomino

During complicated processes expert legal advice is undeniably required. This is certainly the case for divorce proceedings. With a specialist solicitor you will be able to get more than a legal status; you can increase your chances of getting custody as well as a percentage of any assets.

If you are in that early stages of a divorce it is really important to realise that the most important fact to consider are your kids and their future, not the personal dispute with your former partner.

When you instruct a specialist solicitor in family law to help with your divorce, you may be facing one of the following patches:

Amicable divorce

This is the ideal scenario when family matters are being solved. However, family law solicitors are still indispensable due the paper work relating to children and goods acquired during the marital relationship. This reasoning similarly applies to cohabiting couples.

Even if the environment is hostile, specialist solicitors can often still find solutions through mediation. This form of alternative dispute resolution is important to keep in mind and discuss with your solicitor.

Contested divorce

This is normally a lengthy and expensive process, because neither party are willing to change their point of view under any circumstances. In such instances, a family law solicitor can help you to take the most productive and beneficial position.

You will benefit from the assistance of a specialist solicitor in family law in order to avoid losing out on child access and joint assets, which may not be specifically in your name or your joint names but which you may have helped to acquire.

It is very important to remember that solicitors can advice you at all stages of the divorce process, which means that you will be well informed and prepared to face the situation.
