How our Pontypridd divorce lawyers can help you
Initiating divorce proceedings
When you first apply for a divorce, it is vital to ensure that the paperwork is complete and accurate. If there are errors or omissions it can delay matters or result in the application being rejected.
Our divorce solicitors in Pontypridd can ensure that your divorce petition is correct and that all of the relevant details are included. We can also discuss with you the correct grounds on which to apply for divorce. This will involve ensuring that the grounds are acceptable to the court, but also minimising the likelihood of your spouse objecting.
After your application has been submitted to the court, we will advise and guide you through the remainder of the process, to include dealing with arrangements for children, financial agreements and issues regarding property.
Responding to divorce proceedings
If you have received notice of divorce proceedings being commenced by your spouse, it is important to respond during the given time period and provide all the necessary details.
Our Pontypridd divorce solicitors can assist you in putting together your response and filing it within the specified deadline. We can also support and guide you through the rest of the issues involved in a divorce to ensure that your rights and interests are protected throughout.
Divorce financial settlements
Reaching agreement with your spouse about financial issues in divorce is often difficult. You will both need to disclose all of your marital assets so that a fair division can be agreed upon.
Our divorce team are widely experienced in the financial aspects of divorce and have an excellent track record of success in obtaining the best possible settlements for our clients.
We are also strong negotiators and can often reach agreement with the other side over financial issues, which is generally a faster and more cost-effective way of dealing with matters. We have experience in complex and high-value divorce cases as well as difficult cases where recourse to the courts is unavoidable.
If your case does go before a judge, you can be sure that we will provide excellent representation on your behalf and ensure that your case is as strong as possible.
Arrangements for children
Making acceptable arrangements for children is often the most emotionally difficult part of the divorce process. The court will always look at what is in the best interests of the child and our solicitors can help negotiate with your spouse to put an acceptable arrangement in place that is both right for your child and observes your rights as a parent.
In the event that an agreement cannot be reached, we can apply to the family court on your behalf for a Child Arrangements Order.
For more information, see arrangements for children.
