It is a well known fact that
divorce can be one of the most stressful times in an individuals
life. In 2004 almost 150,000 divorces occurred throughout
England almost certainly causing stress and worry for the 300,000
It is vital to obtain expert
legal opinion during divorce in order to ensure that your interests
are being looked after and protected. If you are concerned
about costs and are on a low income then you may find that you
qualify for Legal Aid assistance. It is important to know
that not all solicitors offer Legal Aid funded work and you may
therefore need to contact several firms in order to find a firm
that may be able to help you.
If you are concerned with regard
to what will happen to your children and your visiting rights, or
have been in a marriage and have suffered from domestic violence
issues then again there are specialist solicitors who will be able
to provide you with advice.
It is important to remember that
there are other aspects that will need to be addressed when going
through a divorce that may not necessarily be legally
related. Such aspects may include your pension rights, your
property, the arranging of life insurance in order to protect your
financial situation after divorce, and the question of your general
financial well being after the divorce. A good solicitor will
be able to refer you to professionals who will be able to provide
advice on these topics.
There are many organisations who
may be able to help you during this stressful time including some
who may be able to mediate between the parties if you believe that
there is a chance that your marriage may be saved.
Whatever your concerns it is
comforting to know that there are organisations out there who may
be able to help you.
