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.
When a marriage is coming to an end, finances can often be stretched, as the money that before only had to support one household, may now have to stretch to the upkeep of two. A solicitor can sometimes seem like an unnecessary expense. Additionally, some people feel that involving solicitors could provoke an already tense and difficult situation, further.
The simple answer is that it is possible to divorce in England and Wales without needing a solicitor. However, there are many advantages to seeking legal advice. As we’ll discuss in this article, an experienced family solicitor could help to ensure that time and money are not wasted unnecessarily.
In order to get a divorce, it is necessary to complete paperwork to submit to the courts. Any mistakes on these documents can cause unnecessary delays to your divorce.
In addition, as we’ve discussed in some of our previous blogs on this subject, it’s also necessary to choose your grounds for divorce, as in England and Wales there is no such thing as a ‘no fault’ divorce. Getting legal advice on this can be invaluable.
Moreover, seeking independent legal advice from an experienced family solicitor is highly advisable, so that you know how the law could apply to your individual circumstances. For example, a good solicitor can advise you on everything from whether you have a legitimate claim for maintenance from your spouse, to any rights you may have to a share of your spouse’s pension. Additionally, your solicitor should be able to advise you about childcare arrangements and what kind of contact you could expect if your child/children are not living with you.
A solicitor should also be able to advise you when expert advice from, for example, an accountant to value a business, is necessary. They can also help you to locate the appropriate professional.
Finally, if there could be an international element to your divorce, this can further complicate things. Seeking advice as quickly as possible in these circumstances, is highly recommended.
A skilled solicitor should work with you to negotiate your financial settlement. Through their in-depth knowledge of family law and their wealth of experience of other cases, they should be able to advise you of what you could expect your financial settlement to look like.
Going to court to ask a judge to decide your financial settlement for you, can be time consuming and costly. In most circumstances, this should be viewed as a last resort. However, in some cases, court will be the only option and a good family solicitor should be ready and able to advise you if this is the case.
Seeking independent legal advice from a solicitor regarding your divorce, could help to ensure that the process runs as quickly and smoothly as possible, so that you can move on with your life. An initial consultation with a family solicitor is the ideal time to discuss your options and decide whether you would like to have a family solicitor by your side throughout your divorce.
