Diy Divorce – Do You Really Think It’s A Good Idea?

December 17, 2018

The festive period is the most stressful time of the year. You have presents, trees, decorations, food and drink to buy and then have to find the time to wrap the presents and spend time with family. For those who are going through a difficult point in their marriage this can be even more stressful. This time of year can be the worst time imaginable for those going through a difficult spell with their spouse or civil partner, and can prove to be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.

The New Year brings hope that things will get better. However, this just is not the case, things can go from bad to worse. Like so many others in your position, you could have decided over the festive season that you cannot continue living like this. The New Year can bring a new start in terms of a divorce.

You don’t necessarily need a solicitor to divorce your spouse or civil partner, but would you really want to run the risk? There are so many reasons why the Court will reject a divorce petition. However, our specialist Family team are able to guide you through all the nuances which accompany the procedure.

Do you know why you would need a Financial Consent Order? Do you know the difference between a Decree Nisi and a Decree Absolute? Do you know the five grounds for divorce?

If you don’t know the answer to any of these questions, then you need to call our offices on 01795 472291 and speak to our team of family solicitors. To read about our services please click here.
