Family law Basildon
Going through a divorce can be one of the most stressful and difficult experiences of your life, especially if the split is acrimonious. Dealing with complex financial, legal and family matters can be difficult at a time when emotions are running high. At Hook and Partners, we can be your guides, making sure you have access to the best possible advice throughout this process. Whatever the circumstances of your separation, we will work with you and your family to help you reach a fair and equitable resolution.
A simple process
Recent changes to the law have made it easier for couples to make joint applications and to initiate proceedings without assigning blame. The new rules were introduced to try and make the process less complicated and distressing for everyone. Even so, bringing a marriage to an end can be a complicated business.
Dividing shared assets, and making arrangements for where children will be living can be complicated, especially if the two parties cannot agree on a suitable way forward. That’s why you need expert legal representation provided in a way that is clear, accessible and keeps you in control right the way through the process.
Parenting can be difficult at the best of times, but during and after a separation things can become even worse, especially if the parents are not on good terms. Children can often become caught up in the crossfire between parents so it is vital that their interests are protected.
At Hook and Partners, we offer specialist divorce and family law solicitors in Basildon together with trained and accredited mediators and consultants who will make sure the rights of the children are safeguarded throughout.
We can help with all key issues such as childcare arrangements, custody, child support, maintenance and shared custody arrangements. When disputes arise we will work with all parties to come to the most productive and equitable arrangement possible.
Our team will also help you reach a fair and definitive settlement of financial obligations through a financial remedy order. Separating couples often assume divorce severs all financial ties. This is not true. Divorce only deals with the marriage end. A spouse could still have a financial claim years after separation. With a financial remedy order, you can avoid any unpleasant surprises further down the line. It is a legally binding agreement about how you and your spouse will divide your finances going forward.
With this in place, you’ll be able to dismiss any claim a spouse brings against you that sits outside of this agreement in the future.
