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.
From the more trivial postings about what someone has had for dinner to the emotional outpourings which are often written after one too many drinks, mediums such as Facebook and Twitter have made it all too easy to check what an ex-spouse or our children are up to.
Aside from the emotional toll this can take (is there ever anything positive that comes from checking an ex’s Facebook profile?), there are some serious consequences that we often don’t consider, until it is too late.
Going through a divorce can be an extremely emotional and difficult time for everyone involved. Talking to friends or a professional about what you are experiencing can be helpful. Making your frustrations public on social media, on the other hand, can often serve to make things worse.
Plus, it is perfectly possible that your child or future partner, in many years time, could access and read all of the arguments you and you spouse have had over social media. As a rule of thumb, it’s a good idea not to write anything on social media which you wouldn’t be happy saying out loud in front of all of your friends, family and a crowd of strangers.
If possible, try to steer clear from social media altogether (or at least your spouse’s profile) if you know you will be tempted to post something regarding your separation.
Most of us now walk around with a recording device, in the form of our smartphones, on us at all times.
It seems to be becoming more and more common for parents to record their children talking about the other parent, in an attempt to gather evidence that the other parent is irresponsible and that they are not the best choice for the children to live with full time.
Any legal issues of recording conversations aside, questioning children about the other parent in this way can be emotionally distressing for the child involved and can often leave them feeling, at the least, in a very difficult position and at the worst, extremely upset.
One court case a couple of years ago about who a child should live with, involved a father and his partner making many secret recordings by, amongst other things, putting bugs into his child’s clothes. The judge said that hiding these kind of recording devices on a child in order to gather evidence for family proceedings was “almost always likely to be wrong.”
If you want to gather evidence about, for example, assets you believe your spouse to be hiding, it is important to make sure you are not committing a crime. For example, opening your spouse’s post or checking their emails without their permission, could be a criminal offence.
Seeking legal advice before embarking on any kind of investigation is advisable, so that you don’t end up on the wrong side of the law.
