Why do you need a divorce solicitor?
Even if your divorce is amicable, it is a good idea to instruct a divorce solicitor to act on your behalf. There are many forms to complete as part of the divorce process, and your solicitor will make sure they are filled in correctly and submitted on time. Mistakes in paperwork can lead to rejection by the court, which means a longer, more drawn-out divorce process and further court fees.
Receiving a Decree Absolute ends a marriage, but it is separate from child arrangements and financial arrangements. Your divorce solicitor will be able to advise you about this. It is sensible to sort out financial matters at the same time as divorce or soon afterwards because otherwise, there is nothing to stop your ex-spouse from claiming any future assets, inheritance or income you receive.Get in touch
