As well as the support from family and friends you will need to consider hiring some divorce professionals.
One of the first members of your professional team should be your divorce solicitor – also known as a family law solicitor. However, how do you choose who to instruct? You know the divorce process can be challenging and that solicitors cost money, so you may be worried about getting it wrong.
Before setting up my divorce consultancy practice, I was a family law solicitor myself. I have written this guide to help you understand how to choose the right solicitor for your situation and how to work with them cost effectively through your divorce or separation.
This guide is for you if:
you have decided to separate or divorce and
are ready to obtain formal legal advice about your situation or
are ready to hire a solicitor to represent you in your divorce case but
don’t know how to choose the best solicitor for your situation and
don’t know how solicitors work and charge
are a UK national and/or your divorce would take place in England and Wales
