The beginning of a new year is often a time for reflection and resolutions. People want to make changes whether that be a new exercise regime, a diet or something bigger.
For couples in an unhappy relationship it often means taking the formidable task of bringing it to an end. As Christmas is a time for families it is often postponed until after the holiday period.
If you find yourself in this position there are important factors to consider before taking the leap:
1. Are you sure your relationship is at the end? Have you considered relationship counselling? Don’t act prematurely.
2. How to separate? It doesn't need to end in the divorce court. A separation can be negotiated through a specialist Family Solicitor or mediator .
The end of a relationship is an emotional minefield. Sadness and hurt can get in the way of financial discussions and decisions about the children.
A family specialist lawyer can help you stay focused on the issues without being emotive. Take advice and find out your rights and options. If you find yourself in this predicament and need to speak to a specialist Family Solicitor we can assist you here at MTA solicitors LLP. Our family team are members of Resolution ( formerly the Solicitor’s Family Law Association).
