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.
Nine months on, not much has changed. Papers are full of politicians debating the merits of hard Brexits, soft Brexits, different coloured Brexits and whether or not we will be worse off, as individuals and a nation, after we leave the European Union. But this isn’t just a debate that is happening between politicians and academics, far away from our everyday lives.
Brexit is personal. It’s an emotive subject and something that is still hotly debated at many a dinner party around Britain and further afield. All of us know of someone who has fallen out with their mother, their brother, their father…the list goes on, over a disagreement regarding Brexit. The passion that surrounds our place within Europe, indeed our place within the world, means that over the past few months, maybe even more so than during the run-up to the referendum, people have firmly categorised themselves as Leave or Remain. And there is rarely any middle ground.
It’s unsurprising, then, that when, within a marriage, one person is part of the Leave camp and the other Remain, arguments will ensue.
Brexit isn’t just a difference of opinion; it’s a disagreement about our fundamental beliefs, the things that are at the very core of us and make us who we are. These beliefs stem from the part of us that helps us form our opinions and, in essence, informs how we live our lives and the choices that we make.
So, it comes as no shock, that for many couples who cannot agree on Brexit, there is only one option: Divorce.
When someone comes to us to seek advice and to start the divorce process, we ask them why they would like to file for divorce, so that we can begin to prepare the necessary paperwork and start the process. We hear a wide variety of reasons on a daily basis, from infidelity to abuse, right through to simply growing apart.
Over the past nine months, however, when asked for a reason for divorce, an increasing number of people are citing ‘Brexit’ as the cause for their relationship breakdown.
Some would argue that, although it’s the reason being given for the divorce, Brexit is unlikely to be the actual issue, but rather the ‘final straw’ in an already struggling relationship. Whether this is the case, or not, is difficult to judge, as the only people who truly know what is going on in a relationship, is the people who are in it.
Is Brexit simply the last in a long line of problems for these couples? Or is it much more than that?
Here at Austin Kemp, we suspect that in some cases, it may well be simply one disagreement too much.
But for couples to stick together, certain fundamental values must be shared, or the relationship, on many occasions, will simply not work. For some people, their ‘Leave’ or ‘Remain’ stance, could represent, and indeed ‘bring to the surface’, a fundamental difference in their values and outlook on life and ultimately, end in the breakdown of their relationship.
Only time will tell whether the statistics show us an increase in divorce in the 12 months post-Brexit. We await these with interest.
