So you’ve decided to get a divorce with your partner and want to find out the next step. Often at this stage, you will feel exhausted, emotionally drained and unsure which way to turn. Many couples will consider their own interests and want to get the best out of this bad situation. Many will also actually be on speaking terms but are both prepared to go down the traditional route to end their marriage. However, once they start speaking to separate solicitors and begin to prepare, the tables often turn and each person’s instinct is to effectively fight their corner, which eventually leads to more time spent in court and a bigger bill to pay.
Alternatively when you are ready to start the process of divorce, you can contact your local Divorce Negotiator. We are trained specialists in divorce and work with both petitioner and respondent (P R). We mediate to effect a peaceful solution and continue to strive until it’s done, explaining the requirements of the court along the way, as well as the pitfalls to avoid. A Divorce Negotiator will persuade and arbitrate to give balance to arguments, not to be biased but to prepare common ground.
We will prepare all the legal paperwork and negotiate when a settlement is complicated so that P R can determine what is best for you and your family. If by chance, P R are called to Chambers, then we will prepare P R so they are ready. When we conclude, the agreement reached and confirmed by the Court will be the agreement reached by P R. It is your agreement, we merely facilitate, explain and take you through the process.
