The legal side of separating your life when a relationship breaks down
When a relationship breaks down, it can be hard to know where to begin with properly separating your lives, both emotionally and legally. Issues such as what to do with your home, who takes care of any children you may have, and who gets your assets and pets all add to the emotional strain of ending a relationship, meaning that divorce can be one of the most stressful experiences in your life.
When a marriage breaks down and the only option is divorce, it would be very wise to seek legal assistance from a solicitor immediately. Divorces initially start with one part of the married couple petitioning the other for a divorce with the reasons for why they seek this divorce and whether there are any children in the relationship. If both parties agree on the divorce petition, how to split any assets and who takes primary custody of any children, the divorce may go ahead without any court hearings.
However, in the event of any disagreement on the petition for divorce, legal advice from a solicitor will be essential as these disagreements often result in a court hearing. At such a stressful time, it would be better if both parties were able to negotiate their terms of divorce before the court gets involved and forces resolution on both parties that may not be suitable.
