Family Law Solicitors Malton, York & Wetherby
When your marriage or relationship breaks down
Whether you are married, living together or civil partners - ending your relationship is never easy. Whilst you may not wish to live together any more, the prospect of splitting up can seem overwhelming, especially if children are involved.
Although it is in everyone's best interests to part amicably, this is easier said than done. With emotions running high, it can be hard for spouses/partners to reach agreement. Issues such as custody of children, what to do about the family home or other shared assets will need to be sorted out.
Divorcing or separating couples are increasingly turning to Collaborative Law as a means of separating with dignity. The Collaborative approach emphasises reaching agreement in private without going to Family court. This process can be tailored around the couples' unique needs, allowing couples to set their own agenda so that they can focus on what is important to them and their family.
