News and Events
A recent survey by The Children’s Society reports that whilst family breakup makes children unhappy in the short term, after a year, children whose parents separated were happier than children whose parents did not get on well together.
In the vast majority of cases parents who are separating are the best people to work out how much time their children should spend with each of them, without the intervention of the Courts.
However, where financial matters are concerned, even if you are planning to divide your assets and agree levels of maintenance entirely amicably, it is usually a good idea to get some advice from an experienced family lawyer first.
An agreement that you reached is much less likely to unravel if you both know what your respective rights and obligations are beforehand, than if one of you discovers that they could have got a lot more after you have discussed finances.
Furthermore, your discussions may not cover all of the eventualities which can arise following separation and a family lawyer may be able to suggest to you that you should consider what should happen in situations which might not have occurred to you.
