Divorce – consider the options

Issuing divorce proceedings can be a distressing time and it may take some time to reach a decision that the marriage is at an end, even if the marriage has been unhappy for many years.

It is our job to not automatically assume that our client wants a divorce. A client often wants to see a solicitor at a first meeting simply to highlight the issues within the marriage and discuss possible options for the future, which may include:

  • Reconciliation.
  • Counselling (marriage or family counselling).
  • A parenting agreement.
  • Parenting classes.
  • Anger management classes.
  • Therapy for addiction.
  • Separation
    • on an informal basis;
    • supported by a separation agreement drafted by solicitors; or
    • formally through judicial separation.
  • Entering into a post-nuptial agreement to formalise the financial arrangements between the parties which may make a party feel more financially secure in the relationship
