As I sit here listening to the windy weather outside, I’m aware of a faint sound of bells ringing – a local village church. As it’s Saturday, this hopefully signals a wedding! So many hopes and dreams come with these wedding bells. When those hopes and dreams get dashed, as so often seems to happen these days, there are sad decisions to be made – things like sorting out separation and finally a divorce. These painful processes need careful handling, not only from the point of view of peoples’ feelings, but also from a legal stand point. Engaging the services of a proper family law solicitor will ease these concerns. It needs the expertise of someone who has specialised in this discipline and knows the law inside out. For example – how can one get a divorce, what are the rules surrounding the application and granting of them. The decree nisi is the first part you get then later the decree absolute which as it sounds, completes the actual ending of the marriage. However, this is often just the beginning of a lot of wrangling for many couples and families split assunder. It does not sort the financial side, particularly say for family businesses. There are many complex issues raised in these circumstances and only a very experienced practioner in family and divorce laws will be in a position to advice if the unfortunate does occur.
