No one wants to get divorced, of course they don’t. However, it’s a sad fact of life that sometimes, having tried to work things through and explore every other avenue, it’s the only option available to move forward.

Another equally sad fact of life is that, however amicable you hope to keep proceedings, however mutual the decision or irreconcilable the differences, once children, property, finances and even beloved pets are involved, the gloves can be off – so you need a dedicated and expert divorce specialist to be in YOUR corner, protecting YOUR interests.

Is Your Partner Hiding Their Assets?

Proving what assets exist can sometimes cause huge issues in making sure you get a fair agreement in divorce, it’s often found that those that are good at making money, are also very savvy at hiding it. Whether it’s in off shore companies, foreign bank accounts or company assets, we will find them. We are working with a team of great investigators, that not only are able to meticulously investigate assets within the UK, but specialise in looking at off shore matters, and we’re very confident that no matter the situation, we’ll provide you with the best chance of making sure you get what you deserve.

Use our divorce experts to make sure you have a fair share of joint assets… Can you afford not to?

How N Legal can help

Once we’ve advised you as to the best options, we are then firmly on YOUR side throughout the entire process:

Petition
The petition is the document making the initial request for a divorce. Obviously, the party instigating proceedings needs to meet one of the acceptable legal grounds for a divorce – adultery; unreasonable behaviour (including violence, verbal abuse or threatening behaviour; drunkenness or taking drugs; not contributing financially (without good reason); desertion (for over two years); being separated for over two years (with both parties in agreement); living apart for over five years (no consent necessary). This goes to the court and to the partner.

Arrangements for Children
Where there are any children, you must agree arrangements as to how they are going to be cared for – for example, shared custody, visits or responsibilities. The divorce can not and will not progress until both parties and the court are satisfied with the agreement – and if no agreement can be reached, then the court will have to be involved.

Decree Nisi
Nisi means ‘unless’, so once all the documentation is complete and in order, the judge will grant this. Therefore, ‘unless’ further issues or disagreements – or even changes of mind – occur the final divorce should now simply be a formality.

Decree Absolute
‘Absolute’ means final and your divorced is now complete and finalised, so, according to law, you are no longer a married couple. In order to ensure that this is definitely what each party wants, there’s an obligatory six weeks plus one day wait between decree nisi and decree absolute, much like a cooling off period.

Financial matters
At this point, financial issues are agreed – and a ‘consent order’ can be made, but failing that, the court will decide upon financial matters. The resultant wrangling can continue after the Decree Absolute.

At such a stressful time, you need the right team behind you – at N Legal we have that team. Divorce isn’t something to leave to chance or muddle through. Call the specialists to help you take the first step towards your future, whilst also safeguarding your past.
