Why do I need a final order if we have no money?

Written by Victoria. Posted in Financial Settlements


When you are considering a divorce, there are many things that need sorting out. 

Of course, you need to legally end the marriage, and there are usually arrangements about children which need finalising one way or the other. We frequently have enquiries from people who tell us that 'there is nothing to sort out' in relation to money, because they don't have any! They don't own a house, they don't have any savings, there are no pensions etc and therefore what's the point in getting any final order?

Knowledge is Power

Written by Carol-Anne. Posted in Blog

Everyone has heard the famous quotes, a little bit of knowledge is dangerous and knowledge is power that have been around for centuries. They both come to mind on a regular basis when I am helping people deal with separation issues.

Do we have to go to mediation?

Written by Victoria. Posted in Blog

One of the recent changes that has affected family law, in most of its forms, is the requirement that mediation has to be considered, before an application can be made to the court to sort out a family issue. This is often frustrating and bewildering to people. Many people feel that:
• They have already tried talking to the person involved, and it can't be sorted out amicably
• They can't even sit in the same room as that person, let alone have a civil conversation
• It won't resolve anything, and it will just delay things even further
• It is expensive and pointless.
Even if you are representing yourself, you will be required to consider mediation as an option unless you are exempt.

WARNING! The Danger of Social Media in Family Matters

Written by Carol-Anne. Posted in Blog

Reading an article in the news today about domestic violence and new guidance for the police and Crown Prosecution Service in relation to social media prompted me to write this blog as a reminder to all involved in relationship breakdown situations to take a minute to think before posting anything to social media.

The article can be seen on our Facebook page but in summary it is a recognition that the way of communication has changed and that abuse is often over social media rather than face to face or on the phone, particularly with the younger generation. The guidance takes on board that many victims of abuse were not being helped as social media postings were often not taken seriously by the police and action taken. This must serve as a warning to anyone posting abusive comments on social media that their actions could result in a prosecution and criminal record.

The warning must go further than that though. The dangers are not only posting directly abusive comments or harassing someone online but go much further with the increasing use of social media.
