Susan Davies of Ansons LLP Solicitors family law team in Lichfield, Staffordshire, explains: “This is not true.
Most couples want a civilised and amicable divorce and manage to achieve that.
Aggressive and acrimonious divorces are relatively few and far between, but may get noticed because they hit the headlines.
Financial settlements in a divorce can be agreed outside of the court process. Couples can benefit from a choice of mediation or collaborative law to provide more constructive routes to a settlement. A specialist family law solicitor will help you to try and achieve an amicable separation.
