Divorce and Ancillary Relief: I represented client who was in business with his ex wife. Parties on very poor terms. Divorce and an agreed order resolved by agreement between the parties within 11 months, with a final order and without contested court proceedings
Divorce and Ancillary Relief: client had represented herself, and had issued proceedings but needed help as the matter became more complex and was going to court. I took over the case and obtained a favourable order in the terms she wanted after 7 months.
Divorce and Ancillary Relief: client is the wife, she instructed me to resolve the divorce and financial settlement. The case was resolved by agreement with the husband acting for himself, within five months of first instruction. Parties were divorced and sorted out their finances and children issues by agreement with a final order for the financial settlement being made by the court.
In this case, a contact dispute with the ex-partner and father of a 9 year old, the child was unwilling to go for contact with the father. This was because of the fathers behaviour during previous contact.
The father had instructed a solicitor to act on his behalf. The prospect of court proceedings and continual contact with the father was distressing for both mother and child.
I was able to resolve the matter for them by understanding the child's point of view and by writing an appropriately worded letter on the mothers behalf explaining why the the child did not want to go.
Two weeks later the issue was resolved and no court proceeding were necessary.
