Has Christmas shown up the cracks in your relationship?

26th December 2015

It has become something of a cliché that divorce lawyers receive a flurry of enquiries on the first day back at work after the Christmas break.  The stresses and strains of trying to keep several generations happy can be simply too much to bear and become the straw that breaks the camel’s back.

If your relationship has struggled to make it through the festive period then Susan Davies, head of family law at Ansons Solicitors, advises that maybe now is the time to get some advice or help. 

Relationship breakdown brings many worries for couples regarding their financial security, the family home, where the children will live and even implications for a family-owned business. 

Not knowing the answers to many of these questions adds to the stress and strain of whether to separate.  Every couple’s set of circumstances is quite unique and you really do need to take advice from a specialist family law solicitor. 

“It can be very difficult to make decisions about your relationships especially when it affects your children and your future financial stability,” says Susan.  “It is at precisely this time that you need advice you can rely on from someone you can trust.”

To help you get advice when you need it most, Ansons Solicitors family law department are offering free initial interviews throughout January.

During this free half hour appointment, you will meet with one of our highly experienced family lawyers, for a confidential discussion about your situation.

“There are now many ways for couples splitting up to work out the details of their separation, such as collaborative law or mediation.  At Ansons, we find the route that is best for you and your family, and if possible help preserve ongoing communication which is vital if you have children or run a business together,” explains Susan.

At the end of your free initial interview, we will outline your options based on your particular circumstances and provide an indication of the likely costs if you decide to go ahead with an agreed course of action.
