At Vienna Kang we understand that divorce and separation can be a highly emotional and a stressful time for our clients, so we aim to deal with our client’s matter in an amicable and pragmatic way.
We act for both Petitioners and Respondents in divorce proceedings, on a fixed fee basis.
There is one ground for divorce and that is the marriage has irretrievably broken down. You can prove that your marriage has broken down irretrievability, in one of five ways:
- Adultery by one party
- One party’s unreasonable behaviour
- Two years’ separation, with consent to the divorce
- Five years separation
- One party has deserted the other
There are three main stages to the divorce process, drafting and issuing of the divorce petition, Decree Nisi stage, and the final Decree Absolute stage.
Our specialist divorce solicitors will guide you through the divorce process and discuss which fact is most suitable for your situation.
Financial Aspect of the Divorce
Reaching a financial settlement with your spouse can often be one of the most difficult aspects of your divorce.
It is important to understand that the completion of your divorce does not bring an end to any financial claims, which you or your partner may have against one another, unless you have entered in to a Financial Consent Order.
You can conduct financial negotiations prior to issuing the divorce petition, alongside the divorce proceedings or once your divorce has been concluded.
If you do not resolve the financial aspect of the divorce, then you and your partner retain the right to make financial claims against each other, and their estates, at any point in the future.
When parents separate, we understand that trying to agree how often the children spend time with each parent, can be overwhelming.
Many parents can agree a contact schedule between themselves and they can implement this into a parenting plan, but few parents realise that the agreement is not legally binding, and one parent can change the plan.
In some circumstances, parents can attend mediation and they are able to come to an agreement with an independent mediator present.
Sometimes, parents can instruct specialist child contact solicitors to negotiate a contact schedule on their behalf, which can then be drafted into an Agreed Child Arrangements Order.
In other circumstances, some parents cannot come to an agreement and they will need to issue Child Arrangement Proceedings at Court.
Our specialist family and divorce solicitors can provide you with legal advice over the telephone, Skype, Zoom or face to face at our offices in Solihull, Bromsgrove or Nuneaton.
