Unfortunately, marriages don’t always work out and, currently, the rate of marriage breakdown and divorce is only increasing. Commonly described as the second most traumatic life experience, thorough consideration should be taken before starting divorce proceedings as it is not the simplest procedure.
As this time of year does prove to be the busiest period for divorces, here are some things to think about and what Caversham Solicitors can do for you.
Common Concerns When Going Through a Marriage Breakdown
If you feel like your relationship is broken beyond repair, there are a few things you need to think about before going forward with filing for divorce.
Ownership & Finances
It is not an easy or short process, so you need to make sure you are prepared for the handling of any formal dissolution of marriage. This includes ownership and finances which are usually solved during the mediation period. Agreements can be reached during a mediation session, but if this does not occur, the resolution process will take longer and become more difficult.
Also, if you have children with your partner, you will have to think about your rights in terms of access. The welfare of any children under the age of 18 will need to be considered and how they will be affected by the divorce, in order for efficient plans to be put into place.
These are the two main things you need to consider when it comes to making the decision of divorce; it is a conclusion that should not be made lightly.
