A fair division of the family assets, including the matrimonial home, must be worked out. If there are children of the family under eighteen the Court must be satisfied that proper arrangements are being made for their welfare. In the majority of cases this is achieved by negotiation between Solicitors and an agreement between the parties.
We emphasize negotiation and agreement rather than conflict and confrontation in the application of the principles of matrimonial law to the special circumstances of each individual case.
Where it is necessary or will assist you we will refer to you to a Mediation Service to assist you resolve issues without recourse to the courts. The aim of mediation is to help couples find a solution that meet the needs of the whole family and feels fair to each of them. It can help reduce tension, hostility and misunderstanding and so improve communication. This is especially important if there are children as parents may need to cooperate over their children’s care and upbringing for some years to come.
Do not suffer in silence. When you need a receptive legal ear and someone to take care of the necessary practical steps with care and discretion simply call Liddell & Company. We offer a fixed fee initial appointment to all new clients.
