Divorce, separation and finances

The breakdown of a relationship is one of the hardest things that you might have to go through in your life and it doesn’t just impact yourself and your partner, there are often others involved.

We advise our clients about what happens to their home, their savings and investments, pensions and income needs when they separate. We also advise in cases where there are disputes about where children should live and how much time they spend with each parent.

We are committed, where possible, to finding amicable solutions to disputes that have arisen. Our specialist team of solicitors are able to work with you through all aspects of the process starting with mediation, negotiations for separation, children arrangements, collaborative law and where necessary court proceedings.

We can advise on the range of options available for resolving disputes. William Giles is an accredited mediator who helps couples reach agreement without the expense of court proceedings.

Mediation and collaborative law

Rather than a full-blown court case, it is often less expensive and less traumatic to enter into Mediation or Collaborative Law where clients and lawyers sit down together and look to resolve the situation without a judge being involved.

The team at Woollcombe Yonge are well versed in these practices and recommend it in many cases. When you do need to talk to us about divorce, the children and the related legal areas then please call one of our Family Law specialists on 01752 660384.

Above anything else, they understand just how difficult this time can be for clients. Read more about Collaborate Law here Read more about Mediation here

Victims of domestic abuse

Victims of domestic abuse

It’s a sad fact that 1 in 4 women in this country will be a victim of domestic abuse at some point in their life and the number of reported male cases is also increasing.

The government has widened their criteria for domestic abuse which means that there are more cases being reported that now include mental, sexual, verbal and even financial abuse alongside physical abuse. It’s a big problem and one that Woollcombe Yonge want to help reduce by successfully working with clients and helping them stay safe. Our service includes applying for Non-Molestation Orders and Occupation Orders. Our Family Law solicitors are all highly trained in dealing with these hugely sensitive issues and they are ready to take a call from anyone who has issues in this area. If you feel that you have been abused in any way, please call our team on 01752 660 384
