We have a remarkable level of success in financial settlements, whether you want to protect your assets or safeguard your financial future. Our family lawyers collaborate closely with our internal accounting staff to promptly give clients a thorough breakdown of their family’s financial matters, assisting you in securing a fair settlement. Our divorce lawyers in Sutton Coldfield assist clients with a wide range of difficult financial issues, including those involving the family home, pensions, trusts, financial holdings, and other business interests.
Our Sutton Coldfield family law team has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to issues with child maintenance, relocation, and contact and residence. These issues can be emotionally taxing for parents and kids, who are already vulnerable due to parent separation, whether they occur during or after divorce. Your family law solicitor will work with you to choose the best course of action, reducing anxiety for everyone involved. Managing Partner Rebecca Calden-Storr is one of only a few family lawyers in the U.K who has successfully handled a contentious child custody dispute through private arbitration, which means the case was settled outside of the court system.
When you come to Stowe, we take the time to learn about you, your family, and your situation so that we can provide you with the personalised service you deserve during this difficult time. Your divorce lawyers will next describe the divorce procedure to you in terms you can comprehend, including the options accessible to you, timeframes, and strategies for avoiding challenges and delays.
A divorce application marks the start of your divorce process. You can apply for a divorce by yourself (sole applicant) or make a joint application with your ex-spouse (joint applicants). Getting this early part right is important as it can help to save you time and money; it can also help to make the process more amicable. Our divorce lawyers can support you in completing and submitting the divorce application to prevent delays.
You’ll receive notice of the divorce application if your spouse has filed for divorce. To properly respond, one must comprehend the often-confusing legal jargon that is utilised. Our Sutton Coldfield divorce lawyers can assist you in responding to a divorce application while putting you in the best position to obtain the most favourable results for you and your family.
England and Wales have a no-fault divorce system, which means you do not have to present a reason for the breakdown of your marriage, simply a statement that your marriage has irretrievably broken down.
The cost of a divorce includes the court fee, which is presently £593, as well as the fees for the solicitors who, if hired, will help the parties through the divorce procedure.
The fee for filing for divorce with the court will be paid for by the “applicant,” which is the person initiating the divorce proceeding. If there is more than one applicant, applicant 1 will cover the court fee.
It is necessary to keep in mind that divorce-related expenses are distinct from those incurred during the negotiations of a financial settlement and/or child custody arrangements.
At 16, a child can choose where they want to live, unless there is a court order that asserts where they must live until they are 18.
For simple divorce proceedings in England & Wales, the procedure can take six to eight months. The entire procedure typically takes one year. When there are protracted disputes regarding children and finances, it is typical for cases to last more than a year. Although it is impossible to forecast with accuracy how long a divorce will take, a competent divorce lawyer can provide you with an educated estimate.
