If you can’t agree your divorce terms between yourselves then you can involve a mediator – an independent third party – who can help to aid discussions between you and your spouse. This approach can be particularly useful when it comes to discussing childcare arrangements. If you cannot agree what will happen with regards to your finances it is important to get specialist independent legal advice so you understand your rights, especially if you are a high net worth individual with international assets and investments.
Collaborative law is where you and your spouse meet with your solicitors – can be a good option if you would prefer to have a legal professional involved. Alternatively, a solicitor, such as Austin Kemp, can negotiate on your behalf.
If you cannot reach an agreement through these processes then you may have to go to court or you could pay a family arbitrator to decide on the settlement for you.
