New Year - New You – how our divorce and family lawyers can help you through this difficult time.
For couples with children, January is the best time (if there ever is one) to seek legal advice on separation and divorce.
The Christmas holidays are often billed as being a great time for family togetherness - when couples can put aside their differences and concentrate on repairing their fragile, overworked relationships, but in reality, they are one of the most stressful times of the year.
You may have known for a while that something wasn’t quite right in your relationship, but you’d pinned your hopes on the the festive season as being a time when you would be more relaxed and able to see past the day-to-day annoyances of your partner and rekindle the ‘old magic’.
However, as is often the case, you find that the annoyances are actually magnified by the amount of time spent in each other’s company. You feel it’s now time to act!
The new year can also be a new start for you too.
Our experienced and very sensitive family law team can help you to evaluate your options, giving you a better idea of what you will need to consider should you wish to seek a new start.
To help you, we are offering (during January) a free consultation – an hour with a family, divorce & separation lawyer based in Clare or Sudbury to determine your options and ‘best’ approach.
We won’t push you into making a decision there and then, we will simply give you the information you need to make the decision that’s best for you and your family.
To book a confidential consultation, please complete the form, stating when the best time is for us to contact you, and the method of contact you would prefer.
