Disagreements Surrounding Reasoning
As the law stands, you must have a reasonable excuse for wanting a divorce, which you can read more about in our previous article here. There is currently no law for couples who want a “blameless divorce”. So, although two people may simply have fallen out of love, blame must be placed. However, this law is set to change shortly. When blame is placed, this can turn amicable divorce hostile.
If blame is placed upon one party, they may disagree with this and believe the blame should be placed elsewhere. This can make divorce proceedings last much longer than initially intended, and therefore, evidence needs to be gathered by both parties to prove their statement. Here at Van Eaton, we understand how difficult and emotionally draining the divorce process can be. We can help you gather the evidence you need to explain your reasoning and have the divorce settlement fall in your favour. Our highly experienced family law and probate solicitors deal with a range of common disputes, which you can find out more about here.
Settlements and Cost
When divorce occurs, there will usually be financial implications. If the couple owned a home together, one party may claim for their share and may even claim for some of their spouse’s savings or pension. This can lead to matters becoming become increasingly contentious and can lead to heated discussions that may need to be solved in court. Not only that, but solicitors’ fees need to be considered alongside the overall cost of divorce.
