If a relationship comes to a complicated end, I’ll help you to tie up the threads and see to it that any arrangements made are fair and in your favour.
I’m committed to your cause, and I’ll fight hard to get the settlement you want. I know that matters like these don’t fall within working hours, so I’m available around the clock when you need someone to talk to. I’ll give you simple and concise advice, supporting you through upsetting times. As part of the Family team, I work with colleagues on complex financial disputes and child issues. The team also works closely with members of the military and the police.
Outside of work, I’m a keen hockey player and play for local side Hereford Hockey Club. I love and play all kinds of music.
Slow down! Take time to consider your options and the advice that you have been given and talk it through with your lawyer.
Divorce wears hard on people, but it’s important to keep calm – it’s much easier to think when your judgment isn’t clouded by emotion.
It helps lots of people to see that the end is in sight, so set yourself a clear path to the finish line.
How long does a divorce take?
The average divorce takes six to nine months. If court proceedings are necessary to resolve matters, it can take much longer than that – sometimes up to 18 months.
Can the other parent stop me from spending time with my children?
This is usually very difficult for them to do, unless there is serious evidence to suggest you pose a risk to your children’s welfare. Following the Children and Families Act 2014, it is now widely thought that having both parents in the life of the children is best for them. While courts deal with each case on an individual basis, they’ll usually do what’s right by the children and uphold your rights as a non-resident parent to see them.
How much it will cost?
This depends on the process and nature of your dispute, but we take great care to estimate costs and work out a plan to make sure you’re in financial control of your case.
