How Can I Get my Abusive Partner to Leave our Home?
The Divorce Magazine | Coping with Divorce
by Anthony Parrish
5d ago
Anthony Parrish Partner Jones Myers Sadly, we work with many clients who, along with their children, are victims of domestic abuse. Some flee the spousal home with little more than the clothes they stand up in while others stay and suffer in silence – because they fear losing any legal rights they may have. It is vital that you know there are injunctions you can take out which entail the Court making an order protecting you and your children from abuse or harassment by your partner/spouse and prevent them from living in your home. Non-Molestation Order An FL401 form enables you to apply for a ..read more

Lisa-Marie Leanders                      Partner                                          Nelsons Solicitors At the beginning of 2022, it was predicted that divorce rates could surge by more than 50% in the UK. The impact of pandemic lockdowns, pressures due to the cost of living increases and changes in legislation such as the no-fault divorce, could all be contributing factors to this.

Solicitors still key to successful separation, despite introduction of ‘no-fault’ divorce 
The Divorce Magazine | Coping with Divorce
by Megan Bennie

Megan Bennie Family Law Solicitor Furley Page While it may be tempting to think that no-fault divorce makes lawyers unnecessary to the process, this is far from the case. Taking advice from a solicitor, even if it’s only a single appointment early in the process, can ensure any application starts off correctly and stays on the right track so that it is ultimately concluded in a way that is as efficient and stress free as possible.  Following the introduction of ‘no-fault’ divorce in April 2022, one or both spouses now simply need to confirm the marriage has broken down ..read more

Nigel C Winter Family Law Partner DMH Stallard But are they “legal”? Thank you for getting to the third part of this blog. Having come this far, you’ve come to terms with: – Why the Pre-Nuptial Agreement may not be as cheap as you’d hoped (typical of reputation of Lawyers – but hopefully the reason behind this is justifiable) Now you’ve also grappled with the notion that a “simple” document can, on occasion, be a wholly inappropriate and unfair document. Typical – you simply wanted some good, simple news and now we’re asking the ultimate question: – Are they actually “legal”? Well, no Lawyer ..read more

Pre-Nuptial Agreements UK – Part Two
The Divorce Magazine | Coping with Divorce
by Nigel Winter
1M ago
Nigel C Winter Family Partner DMH Stallard In the last article on the subject, I raised a query as to whether you want your Solicitor to be a professional or a “salesman”. The reason for this is due to a huge misunderstanding about Pre-Nuptial Agreements which are quite understandably seen as a simple document. They may be! And they may be not!! Why is whenever you go and see a Solicitor with a very simple and straightforward matter, they always complicate things and, predictably, you emerge with a far greater fee quote than you believed would be forthcoming from your online research.

Nigel C Winter Family Partner DMH StallardPre-Nuptial Agreements Part One Undoubtedly, the answer to that question is to have a Pre-Nuptial Agreement. These are straightforward documents but are never, contrary to popular belief, merely a case of presenting your fiancé with a document and expecting them to sign it, thereby concluding the matter. The first issue to consider is perhaps the cost. Why is it so difficult to get a straight answer from a Lawyer? Well, in the first instance we are drawing up a document that may never be used but if it is, it is at an uncertain point in the future when ..read more
