How HMB’s divorce solicitors can help you

Family breakdown and separation brings with it fundamental changes to the lives of all family members. This is one of life’s biggest stresses. At this very difficult time you are called upon to make critical decisions – in your best interests, and the best interests of any children involved.

It is essential to have clear, independent, expert advice preferably at an early stage to help guide your decision making. You might be sure that you are proceeding to a divorce, or you might want to consider alternative routes such as separation and want to explore the differences. You will need to understand the financial implications of the routes you could take.

Our specialist team advise on divorce and separation.

You will find our expert legal advice, along with our practical understanding of the reality of daily family life to be invaluable.

Recent testimonial

A client writes:

“Dealing with Sarah and her team was a great experience and support during a traumatic divorce. Sarah is straightforward (rare for a solicitor!), has a no nonsense and human approach. She is extremely experienced and skilled, always listened to come up with the most appropriate responses and courses of action, making this otherwise stressful process fairly seamless, reassuring and swift. I highly recommend her.”

Understanding the “no fault” divorce process

The new “no fault” divorce process has made the divorce itself a simpler process. The divorce process itself can appear relatively straightforward, but it is the consequences of divorce that need to be considered very carefully before you embark so that you are aware and alert about likely problems you might encounter. Dealing with separating the finances and meeting everyone’s needs, is a difficult task.

Children and divorce

Where your children will live, and their future routines is not always easy to agree. The separation can widen what were already existing differences in parenting ideas and styles.

Some parents find they are facing oppressive negotiations from the other parent who might not have the best interest of the children at heart. False allegations made against a parent can be devastating and need powerful, robust, confident advice in response.

Our family team is very experienced in advising clients who are experiencing issues of child alienation and hostile attempts to prevent contact.

Finances and divorce: protect your assets

With managing financial settlements it is critical to take all elements into account: property from the marriage and before the marriage, liabilities, pensions and any other matrimonial and non-matrimonial assets.

Acting for clients in London, and beyond, our clients have a range of financial matters to resolve, from dealing with a non-matrimonial home, to distributing assets developed from family companies, limited companies and pensions.

Costs and next steps

Clients appreciate our clarity regarding fees, and the breadth of experience available within the family law team as well as our friendly, approachable team.

“If you have a family law problem, we offer a free initial call with the enquiry team. They will answer your questions, arrange a first meeting, and a brief call with the solicitor that is right for your case.

“Then, we offer a first meeting at a fixed fee of £250 plus VAT with a senior solicitor. The meetings usually last one or two hours, allowing time to ask the critical questions you need answered. Our advice is confirmed in a letter, including suggestions for best next steps.”
