Separation & Divorce
We understand how difficult separation and divorce proceedings can be. Our family team combines a discreet approach with practical advice, and offers:
- assistance with court forms
- male and female case workers
- an efficient approach designed to resolve matters swiftly
- cost estimates wherever possible
We'll also advise you on matters such as accommodation, making a will and children. A formal separation may be possible instead of a divorce, depending on your situation – our team will be able to advise you.
Public funding (formerly known as 'legal aid') is available to some clients. We'll discuss your eligibility at our first meeting.
Our team includes: members of the Solicitor’s Regulation Authority Family Panel, and Resolution - an organisation committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes. www.resolution.org.uk
a trained collaborative solicitor who can work with you, your former partner and their collaborative lawyer to try and resolve issues face-to-face. See www.yorkcfl.com for more information on collaborative law.
For more information and advice, just contact us.
