How our Bridgend divorce lawyers can help you

Initiating divorce proceedings

When applying for a divorce, it is important to make sure all of the necessary paperwork is completed fully and accurately. This avoids the risk of any unnecessary delays or your application being rejected.

Our divorce lawyers in Bridgend can help you to prepare your divorce petition, making sure no detail has been overlooked. We can advise on issues including what reasons to cite for the divorce, making sure they are sufficient to be accepted by a court while minimising the risk of your spouse disputing them.

Once your application has been submitted, we can support you through the rest of the process, making sure every step is completed promptly, helping your divorce to go ahead as swiftly and smoothly as possible.

Responding to divorce proceedings

Where your spouse has started divorce proceedings, you need to respond promptly while making sure you provide all of the necessary details. You also need to begin thinking about what comes next as your divorce progresses.

Our Bridgend divorce solicitors can help with preparing your response and ensure it is filed promptly. We can also advise you on all of the issues you will need to consider as part of the divorce process.

Divorce financial settlements

Dividing your finances during divorce can be very complicated, with the need to account for all of your marital assets, while making sure you get a fair deal and have financial security for the future.

Our divorce solicitors in Bridgend are experts in divorce finances, including where there are complex and high value assets to consider. We can assist with reaching a voluntary divorce settlement, as well as advising on applying to a family court for a Financial Order where an amicable financial settlement cannot be agreed.

Arrangements for children

Working out who your children will live with and what time they will spend with each parent is often the most emotionally fraught part of divorce. It is essential to make sure your children’s best interests are protected, but that does not mean your rights as a parent should not be respected.

Our Bridgend divorce lawyers can help you and your former spouse come to a sensible agreement on what is best for your children while protecting your position as their parent. We can also advise on applying to a family court for a Child Arrangements Order if needed.
