Each year we find that January brings an influx of new enquiries. Along with the normal resolutions, it seems that people often feel the start of a new year is the time to start a fresh with their relationships. We therefore find that the number of people taking advantage of our initial fixed fee consultation increases at this time. It provides a no obligation way of meeting with a solicitor to understand the full implications of divorcing or separating; whether this is dividing your assets or dealing with the arrangements for your children or both.
At Paul Robinson we understand that taking that first step is difficult. When you have put in a huge emotional effort to try and make a relationship succeed the admission that it may not be salvageable is not always an easy one to make. But a frank discussion with a specialist family lawyer can help clarify the financial and legal issues in a way that helps you decide on the way forward.
There is no pressure to instigate proceedings or continue with matters following on from the fixed fee consultation (although we find that with the right information and knowledge people often feel equipped to make the decision to move forward) and we leave matters with you until such time as you are ready to proceed. Either way, a great deal can be gained by obtaining specialist advice so that you can understand what a new start really would mean for you and your family.
