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 lengthy reality of some divorces means that sometimes, one or both of the spouses, could meet someone else.
With rumours questioning whether Brad Pitt is dating again appearing in the news over recent weeks, we thought we’d take a look at what it could mean for your divorce if you were to meet someone else before your divorce is finalised.
Back in 2014, Mr Justic Mostyn warned that women could risk losing their share of the finances by embarking on a new relationship, because judges may assume that their financial future was assured, as they were going to set up home with their new partner.
Divorce can be an extremely stressful time when emotions may run high. Embarking on a new relationship during your divorce could cause issues between you and your spouse, especially if they did not want the relationship to end. This friction may make negotiations about your financial settlement more strained and difficult than they could have been without another party involved.
Moreover, buying expensive gifts for your new partner could result in your spouse arguing that the money you spent should be added back into the matrimonial finances when it comes to the financial settlement.
If you are living with a new partner, a judge could assume that you are, to some extent at least, sharing your finances.
If you are living with your new partner during divorce proceedings, or intend to live with your new partner, you will be required to disclose this.
In this situation, a request for information about your new partner’s financial position could be made and then approved by a court. This information could be taken into consideration when courts are looking at issues such as your ability to re-house.
There is currently no legal definition regarding cohabitation. However, a court can take into account a number of things, such as opening a bank account with your new partner or sharing bills in a property.
If you were to remarry your new partner before the financial settlement from your previous marriage had been finalised, you may be unable to make any financial claims against your previous partner.
Children can find it hard that one of their parents is in a new relationship. Consider how and when to tell them, rather than leaving them to find out via other people or social media.
It is important to obtain legal advice as soon as possible if you are involved in a relationship with a new partner, or at least before deciding whether to cohabit with your new partner, during the divorce process.
