Divorce & non-molestation order
One of the cases handled by Stowe Family Law's Leeds office in West Yorkshire involved a couple who had been married for over 30 years. They had two teenage children and owned a home with no mortgage.
The husband was controlling and emotionally abusive towards the wife, and his behaviour was escalating. After years of trying to make the marriage work, the wife finally decided to seek a divorce. She contacted the team at Stowe Family Law's Leeds office for help.
The family solicitors at the Leeds office helped the wife understand her legal rights and options, and secured a non-molestation order against the husband, to protect her and the children from further abuse. They also referred the wife to a local domestic abuse charity, who helped support her through the separation.
The Leeds team then negotiated a fair division of the couple's assets, and secured a financial settlement that allowed the wife to maintain her standard of living and provide for her children.
After several months of legal proceedings, the divorce was finalised, and the wife could move on with her life. She was grateful for the support and guidance provided by the solicitors at Stowe Family Law's Leeds office, and she felt relieved to have escaped from the toxic and abusive marriage.
Couple helped with a Child Arrangements Order
Another case handled by Stowe Family Law's Leeds office involved a couple in the process of getting divorced. The couple had three young children, and they were unable to agree on a custody arrangement that would work for both of them.
As a result, they sought the help of the family solicitors at Stowe Family Law's Leeds office to help them obtain a child arrangements order from the court.
The Leeds team used its expertise in Child Law to help the couple develop a custody arrangement that would be in the best interests of the children.
After legal proceedings, the court issued a child arrangements order that reflected the agreed-upon custody arrangement.
The couple was able to move forward with their lives and focus on co-parenting their children in a way that was fair and beneficial for everyone involved.
Financial settlement reached by Stowe
Stowe Family Law's Leeds office recently reached a financial settlement in a case involving a couple going through a difficult divorce.
The couple had been married for over 10 years, and when they decided to divorce, they were unable to agree on a financial settlement that would be fair for both parties.
The Leeds team worked closely with the couple to understand their individual financial situations and identify the assets that needed to be divided between them.
They helped negotiate a settlement that would allow both parties to move forward financially.
This included dividing the couple's savings, investments, and property, as well as establishing a fair amount of spousal and child support.
After several months of negotiations, the team helped the couple reach an agreement that was satisfactory to both parties.
The divorce was finalised, and the couple could move on with their lives, each with a fair and equitable share of the assets they had accumulated during their marriage.
