How can our Divorce Solicitors and Divorce Lawyers in Manchester help you?

Our Manchester based divorce solicitors and divorce lawyers help clients from Manchester and the surrounding area with a range of legal issues, including:

Getting a divorce – Do I have to go to court for my divorce?

Our divorce solicitors and divorce lawyers will take your case to court as a last resort. There are many other ways to try and reach a settlement before committing to the expense of court.

You could try things such as mediation (an independent third party there to aid discussion) or collaborative law (where you, your spouse and both of your solicitors meet and try to negotiate a settlement) or you could ask your solicitor to negotiate for you.

If nothing else works or your spouse is unwilling to be reasonable during negotiations then you can take your case to court. You could also go to court if your spouse refuses to give out any financial information.

Even if you do go to court, if you and your spouse reach an agreement about your settlement at any point then the case can stop. You don’t have to wait and let the judge decide. Family arbitration (where you pay someone to decide your settlement for you) is another alternative to court if negotiations aren’t successful. This is especially useful if you are a high net worth individual and you don’t want your settlement to be made public, or if you are worried about the press, as this process is completely confidential.


When getting a divorce how can I make the divorce process cost as little as possible?

There is always the option of you and your spouse agreeing terms and then administering the divorce proceedings yourselves. If you do want to do this there are many of resources available online, including official government websites, that will help you understand the process.

It could be said that the divorce itself is the easy part. What is actually more difficult is agreeing the terms such as childcare arrangements or the financial settlement. It is usually best to get legal advice, even if this is just a fixed price initial meeting with a specialist solicitor, before you begin your divorce proceedings. A good solicitor will be able to talk you through your rights and how to get the best financial settlement.

Expert legal advice, from our family lawyers or divorce solicitors, is even more important if you or your spouse are high net worth individuals with complex, international assets and investments.

Prepared with the advice and understanding your rights, you may then want to discuss the terms directly with your partner or involve a mediator – an independent third party – in the negotiation process.

Austin Kemp’s experienced team of divorce solicitors and divorce lawyers will provide you with the advice you need so you feel confident that you are getting the best divorce settlement for you.
