Being involved in a family dispute, whether that be in relation to divorce or child arrangements, can be a very stressful and emotionally sensitive time for all involved. Therefore, it is essential that you have the most effective support system surrounding you including people that you can trust and rely on. Further to this, having the correct solicitor in such situations can help to alleviate added pressures from the process and help to support and guide you throughout.
What is a family law solicitor?
A specialist family law solicitor is a highly qualified individual with experience dealing with all types of family disputes. Their aim is to help and support you, and to ensure that navigating the process is as smooth as possible. Your family solicitor is there to explain the processes to you, provide you with specialist legal advice, and to help you understand what expectations you must fulfil. They will also discuss all relevant options with you, including alternative dispute resolution, in order to identify what best suits your individual circumstances. If your case does result in court proceedings, your solicitor will be there to represent you and offer guidance and advice throughout.
It is essential that you find a solicitor that is the best fit for you. It is a very personal decision and therefore it must be someone who you feel comfortable discussing sensitive and difficult information with.
