We give you clear and practical advice on the best steps to follow, whether that is about distributing assets in a fair and sensible way, or making sure the interests of your children are protected. We can advise you about the various options for reaching agreement, such as mediation or collaborative law, and if it does go to court we do everything possible to ensure a fair outcome. For some it can be a lot to take in, so our approach is to break things down into steps and take you through a clear and manageable process that removes the unknown and gives you back a sense of control.  Visit  www.mooreblatch.com/individual/family-divorce/

 

The Divorce Surgery helps cut out the conflict.

When couples separate they face numerous complicated decisions about splitting their finances. Most couples will need expert legal advice to find tailored solutions which are fair to both of them. What they do not need is an adversarial process which raises further tensions and can be very costly.  The Divorce Surgery short circuits the traditional route. Instead of appointing your own lawyers, one impartial and experienced family law barrister advises you both as to the way a court would view your case. We aim to complete the process in 6-8 weeks so you are then each empowered to come to an agreement which is fair. No lengthy litigation, no acrimony, no delay and no disproportionate legal fees. Founded by 2 experienced and specialist family law barristers, The Divorce Surgery is authorised and regulated by the Bar Standards Board.
