Divorce is a significant life event that can be emotionally and legally complex. At Arlingsworth, we understand the sensitivity of this matter and are committed to guiding you through the process with compassion and expertise.
Understanding the Grounds for Divorce
As of 2024, the UK’s divorce law has evolved to allow for a more straightforward process. The introduction of ‘no-fault’ divorce means that couples can now apply for a divorce without assigning blame. This significant change aims to reduce the conflict and stress often associated with the dissolution of a marriage.
The Divorce Process: Steps to Move Forward
The process begins with filing a divorce petition, which is now more accessible thanks to digital advancements. It’s crucial to provide accurate and complete information to avoid delays. Once the petition is filed, your spouse will have a chance to respond. This stage is crucial, and our team at Arlingsworth is here to provide expert advice and ensure your rights are protected.
Financial Settlements: Fair and Equitable Solutions
One of the most challenging aspects of divorce is reaching a financial settlement. Our approach is to negotiate a fair and equitable solution that considers both parties’ contributions and future needs. We understand the importance of securing your financial future and will work tirelessly to achieve an outcome that reflects this.
Child Arrangements: Prioritising the Well-being of Children
If children are involved, their well-being is our top priority. We strive to help you reach an arrangement that minimises disruption to their lives and supports their ongoing relationship with both parents. Our team is experienced in handling sensitive negotiations and will always advocate for the best interests of your children.
Support and Guidance Every Step of the Way
At Arlingsworth, we believe in providing support beyond legal advice. Divorce can be a challenging journey, and we are here to offer guidance on coping strategies and accessing further support if needed. Our team is not just your legal advisor but a partner in navigating this life transition.
