January is often a busy time for family solicitors after couples have decided to separate over the busy and often stressful festive season.

The end of a relationship is a painful conclusion to reach and if not managed carefully, emotional issues can escalate into arguments and bitterness. It is important for spouses to keep a line of communication open, particularly if children are involved.

Clients often find it difficult to communicate with their former partner. Our family law specialists are members of Resolution and our collective aim is to reduce conflict and promote communications which are non-confrontational. We often find that this approach assists parties in reaching early settlements.

The divorce process can be reasonably straight forward.  What is often more difficult is reaching a financial settlement.  It is therefore important to get the right legal advice in the early stages. This includes securing full disclosure from the other party before negotiating a financial settlement. This can be achieved through mediation or through solicitors. This information and advice assists clients in making informed decisions on what is in their best interests for the future.

We offer a range of appointments at King Street Solicitors. You may find that an initial free half hour appointment, either face to face or over the telephone, can assist.  This aims to provide you with basic information about the processes involved in separating, a discussion about mediation and details of our costs can be provided.  We offer fixed fee packages for divorce, children and financial matters which are extremely competitive.
