Divorce and Family Law
One of the most stressful events in life is going through a divorce and dealing with its aftermath. It affects everyone in the family, especially the children. Often there are many questions that need answering:
• Who will the children live with?
• What will happen to the house?
• How to divide the rest of the marital assets?
• How long will it take to resolve the divorce and how much will it cost?
At Saracens our experienced advisors can provide you with those answers and guide you to a result that is mutually beneficial for the whole family.
Everyone at the Saracens family department is a member of Resolution. Resolution is an organisation of lawyers who believe in a constructive, non-confrontational approach to family law matters by way of adherence to a Code of Practice (the “Code”). When disputes are resolved in the constructive and non-confrontational way promoted by the Code, the outcome can often be much better, both financially and emotionally, for all concerned. The principles of the Code are widely recognised and have been adopted by the Law Society as recommended good practice for all family lawyers.
