When do I seek specialist legal advice from our family lawyers in Wetherby?

It is never too early to seek specialist legal advice from our expert Wetherby family solicitors. Even if you are only considering leaving your spouse, we can advise you on the impact that this could have on your assets and investments, including your business. It is better to be prepared and take any necessary action as soon as possible.

 

If you want to protect your business before you get divorced, you can set up a pre-nuptial or a post-nuptial agreement with your spouse that states they can’t claim against your business. Pre and post-nuptial agreements allow married people to have greater control over what happens to their finances in the unfortunate situation of the marriage breaking down. This is especially important for high net worth individuals with a significant amount of wealth and assets. Our expert  divorce solicitors can provide legal advice at any time throughout your marriage to make sure your assets are fully protected.

 

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

Our family solicitors and divorce lawyers based in Wetherby 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 family 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 family solicitors and family lawyers will provide you with the advice you need so you feel confident that you are getting the best divorce settlement for you.

What do our clients say about our service?

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.

Review of Austin Kemp from Jenny Amphaeris Jenny Amphaeris

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!!!

Review of Austin Kemp from Ro Graham Ro Graham

Review of Austin Kemp from Michelle Jeffrey Michelle Jeffrey

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.

Review of Austin Kemp from Tara Costello Tara Costello

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.

Amber Potts

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.

Review of Austin Kemp from Jade Downes Jade Downes

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.

Review of Austin Kemp from Shana Krug Shana Krug

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.

Review of Austin Kemp from Phil Barbour Phil Barbour

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.

Review of Austin Kemp from Audra Reid Audra Reid

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!

Review of Austin Kemp from Charlotte Tsang Charlotte Tsang

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.
