How Bison Can Help You

Are you currently considering a separation or divorce?

At Bison Solicitors we are here to provide you with advice and legal support for any issues relating to divorce or separation. There are several options available if you are considering separating. Our team will provide you with quality legal advice and will work with you to take the path that best suits your needs.

Separation is not easy, it can be a highly complex and emotional time, and each individual challenge faced will be unique to you.

Proceedings surrounding divorce or separation vary widely and can include a whole range of related issues, from determining custody to reaching financial agreements. Couples may also choose to avoid legal proceedings to begin with and have a separation agreement. Our family law team will provide you with specialist advice tailored to your individual situation and ensure you are fully aware of all the options available to you.

We can help you decide what the right path is for you.

You may wish to start with a trial separation to figure out how things might be if the separation was to become permanent. If this is the case our team can talk you through the personal and financial considerations and agreements which need to be made in order to help you explore the option of a Separation Agreement or legal separation. We can also offer advice on moving on from this to formal divorce proceedings.

If you have decided, you want to end your marriage or civil partnership our team can give you advice on how to achieve the best outcome.

If you and your partner have decided to divorce, most of the legal work required will cover reaching divorce settlements on issues such as dividing the matrimonial home and other property or finances. If you are undertaking a marriage separation with children, this will also include agreeing child custody arrangements and ensuring parental responsibilities are protected and fulfilled. Our team of lawyers can help you through this process and assist with negotiations and putting you in touch with mediators for child contact agreements.

 If you are not ready to inform your partner of your decision to divorce or have not decided and need some advice, then we are here to help!

Our first advice sessions can allow you to receive clear and substantial advice, tailored to your specific situation and needs. If you are unsure on whether you are ready to divorce our team can help you explore all the options available to you in your situation.
