Thoroughly excellent service provided via Wikivorce. Was slightly apprehensive of how it would all work, especially at a distance. However, they were swift, efficient, immensely polite, accurate, and gave regular updates. I would recommend them to anyone.
Can't fault my experience in any way. Brilliant advice / available at short notice for any questions and most importantly swiftly achieved the desired result. Found Austin Kemp after feeling HCB Solicitors were not acting in my best interests and I was correct on all fronts - even including having an appreciation for the fact Divorce is already emotional situation. Also, rather than have to query every suggested next step and be charged for the pleasure; As I'd done a little research of my own and was able to challenge their advice - however we pay Solicitors for their expertise and need to put our trust in them. Austin Kemp thankfully achieved that for me during our first conversation I was already reassured they understood what I wanted and how best to achieve it. Resulting in 7-8 months less work and no court appearances as I had been previously advised by HCB. I THANK YOU DEARLY AUSTIN KEMP. I can start my life again earlier and with a healthier bank balance because of you!!!
Amazing service. For the first time in nearly two years I feel less in a spiral and more in control.
Thoroughly professional, straightforward, timely and reasonably priced. I would recommend this firm to anyone. Thank you Emma and Austen Kemp for a great service.
Thank you so much. You were great. I wasted so much time and money with my previous solicitors and only regret I did not contact you earlier. I have dropped a line to Paul to thank him for referring me to you. I hope you enjoyed the red I sent you as a token of our appreciation.
Austin Kemp provides a pragmatic and honest approach to the individual's journey through Family Law issues. They demonstrate a willingness and capacity to respond to challenging and unpredictable circumstances. The professional, yet personal, service is naturally client centred, but with a realistic and informed view of children's needs. And it has been heartening to have such a caring team walk beside me in the long journey.
I cannot recommend highly enough Austin Kemp as a strong, commercially intelligent and the most effective negotiators. Their negotiation skills are second to none. I have seen firsthand the excellent results this team achieves for their clients.
Just want to say thanks so much for everything. You have been brilliant and very patient. I always felt comfortable calling when asking to clarify certain points of the divorce.
I can honestly say that I am more than satisfied with the management of my case and of my then state of mind. I highly recommend this firm. Thank you.
Amandeep Kooner was not prepared to be swayed from a path of professionalism to accommodate my anxiety and frustration. He would not succumb to taking instructions tit for tat response. He ensured at all times that the response he gave reflected a dignified client with a pleasant demeanour. In so doing he demonstrated his commitment to protect and secure my interests and dignity off which I am most grateful.
Although he has a dual approached role which is business and a duty of care, Amandeep Kooner showed concerns for the level of expenditure that I had already put out with no resolve. His team contained the work to the minimum and produced the maximum results. My case was quickly progressed without compromising compassion and understanding.
Very professional service! Explained everything they were doing for my case every step of the way and really helped me to understand how we would proceed. Thank you!
Intellectually bright, hardworking and extremely professional - Amandeep Kooner took my case at it most difficult as I had come to the end of my ability to remain calm and patient. Up until I instructed Austin Kemp, I had lost all hope that any solicitor could convince me in pursuing a non-retaliatory approach as I was losing ground to allegations and fabrications. Tough, hardworking and extremely professional.
The first thing to consider when faced with the question “Should I get a divorce?”, is whether it is going to be you or your partner who starts the divorce proceedings and what the grounds for divorce will be. In English and Welsh law whether you are the petitioner or the respondent doesn’t make any difference but if your divorce has any international element it could seriously impact upon your settlement. If you are a high net worth individual with international assets and investments it is imperative that you contact an experienced solicitor, such as Austin Kemp, as early in the process as possible.
You will also need to consider what will happen to your children and any assets and investments you have. Advice from a specialist solicitor can help you to make the right decisions that are best for you and your children and can make the process and possible outcomes clearer in your mind.
There’s no denying it – dealing with the question “Should I get a divorce?” can be a messy business. Not only are you going through the emotional turmoil of the break-up of your relationship, but you also need to keep your head above the water financially.
Recently, the news has been filled with stories of Eddie the Eagle reportedly living on egg sandwiches in his shed, due to the amount of money he lost during the divorce battle with his wife of 13 years. Unfortunately, struggling financially both during and after divorce is not uncommon.
Making sure that you get the right divorce lawyers can make a real difference to the outcome of your settlement when dealing with the question “Should I get a divorce?”.
Getting legal advice on your position from specialist divorce solicitors as early on in your divorce as possible can save you copious amounts of time and money. By making sure that you fully understand your options and what the likely outcome of your financial settlement could look like, you will be able to go into negotiations with your spouse with a realistic idea of what you want and how you’ll go about getting it.
Conversely, getting the wrong advice from divorce lawyers may mean that, because you have an unrealistic idea of what you are entitled to, the process could end up dragging and costing more and more money – maybe even ending up in costly court proceedings.
Wasting time and money through long negotiations and costly court cases is just one pitfall of not getting the right representation – the wrong representation could even result in you underestimating how much you could be entitled to in your financial settlement.
Experienced divorce solicitors will have a good idea of what your settlement should look like – meaning that you shouldn’t lose out by negotiating for any less.
It’s important to look for a firm who specialise in divorce and have dealt with other divorce proceedings like yours. Although every divorce is unique, it’s important to choose divorce lawyers who understand you and your situation. For example, when dealing with the question “Should I get a divorce?” if you’re a high net worth individual with worldwide assets and investments, choose a divorce solicitor who has the necessary experience and expertise to deal with your complex finances.
Getting the right legal advice can help you to fully understand how much you can expect to receive as part of the financial settlement, making sure that you don’t lose out on what is rightly yours. Specialist divorce solicitors can also conduct negotiations on your behalf, putting the sometimes necessary distance between you and your spouse.
Getting the right legal representation means that you know you are doing everything you can to ensure that you will get your fair share of yours and your spouse’s finances when you divorce – and hopefully avoid eating egg sandwiches in your garden shed.
