If you need to end your marriage, it is best for everyone if the administrative and legal requirements are processed as quickly as possible. This will give you a level of closure and certainty so that you can move on.
At Saracens Solicitors, we are sensitive to the emotional and psychological difficulties inherent in divorce. Our service is professional and we keep you informed at every stage when acting as your divorce solicitor in London. There are various ways that we can help you move on.
Mediation is an important part of moving through divorce proceedings. Having some input from mediation or a mediation service is now a requirement for many people who may want to take their divorce case to court. At Saracens Solicitors, we have agents who are trained in the mediation process to assist you when we are acting as your divorce solicitor in London. Legal aid may be available, if required, to help pay for mediation sessions.
The advantage of mediation is that it helps both parties decide on agreements that they can live with. A court will generally tell you what you have to do, while an arrangement made during mediation takes into account what you want to do.
There are circumstances in which mediation may not be appropriate such as where there is domestic violence, where one of the parties cannot be found or in cases where the dispute is about money and one of the parties is bankrupt. As your divorce solicitor in London, Saracens Solicitors can help you decide if mediation should be avoided.
Division of assets
Saracens Solicitors can help you negotiate division of assets, either on your behalf or in conjunction with you, at meetings with your former partner and their legal representation. This can sometimes be helpful if the arrangements involved are complex. We can also assist with the sale of any property involved, where necessary.
Discussions around childcare and providing for children can be fraught with difficulty. A formal arrangement gives everyone distance and a framework to fall back on so that emotion need not be involved. Saracens Solicitors is committed to conflict-free arrangements that put the needs of the children first.
