A difficult time for you and your family…

The breakdown of a marriage is an incredibly difficult time emotionally, financially and socially. It can be very disorienting for you and your family, and you may feel that there are so many things to sort out at once that you don’t know how or where to start – from where to live, to day-to-day child care, from protecting your professional career to how to pay your monthly bills.

Other options – what if divorce is not right for me?

If you are concerned that Divorce is not the right option for you, there are other routes you can take:

 Judicial Separation

A Judicial Separation does not end the marriage – but you would still need to apply to court. In this case it is also possible to get financial support. It is ideally suited to those who cannot divorce for religious reasons.

Please speak to us today if you are considering this option – we can resolve the matter quickly and explain the details of Judicial Separation to you.

Annulment

In certain cases an annulment is possible instead of a divorce. For example:

annulments_sign

        • If the couple have been married less than a year
        • If the couple are found to be related closer than the law allows
        • If one party was underage at the time of marriage
        • If one party was already married
        • If the marriage was non-consensual (i.e. one party was forced into it, or under the influence of drugs/alcohol)
        • If one party was pregnant by another partner without the spouse’s knowledge.

If any of the above apply to you, or there are any other circumstances you feel may justify the annulment of your marriage, it is important to get legal advice as soon as possible. You can call us any day of the week Monday to Sunday from 8am to 8pm for advice. Our specialists will help consider all your options and assist you in making a decision at this difficult time.

Mediation

If you and your spouse wish to reach an agreement over your separation, the division of your property, assets, and childcare arrangements, mediation may be the best option for you. It is a much quicker process, and much more peaceable for you and your family and therefore reassuring for children. It can also be a quicker and less stressful process than court.

Please contact us if you are considering mediation. Our team will help you and your spouse come to an amicable agreement. After you have been through the mediation process we will draw up a legally binding Consent Order – you can feel reassured that if your spouse does not follow the Consent Order there will be a legal consequences.
