Easing the Pain of Separation

We all know that going through a separation or divorce is one of the most difficult things that can happen to a family. Unfortunately, there will always be an element of pain involved.  However, we also know that separation does not have to involve a drawn out and costly court room confrontation as often depicted on television or the internet.  Many couples are able to sort out the details of their separation together, by talking about how to divide their money, what should happen to the family home, and how they should care for their children.

You might not be able to do this on your own.  A good solicitor can help you through the process.  At Leeds Day, we have a dedicated team of family solicitors who are all members of Resolution, meaning they have signed a code of practice committing them to work in a constructive and non-confrontational way, which takes into account the long term consequences for a family of everything they discuss and advise.

Simon Thomas is the resident family solicitor at the St Neots branch of Leeds Day.  Simon is an accredited member of Resolution and deals with all aspects of family law; in particular focussing on financial matters including pensions, investment assets and businesses following the breakdown of a marriage or civil partnership.  Simon is also one of a pioneering group of family lawyers offering clients the option to reach agreement with their former partner through collaborative family law.  This process lets you talk through the issues you need to solve, with you and your former partner each having a specially trained lawyer by your side at each meeting.

Separation is not easy.  An amicable solution which avoids the courts is not possible for every couple and, where appropriate, we will take effective legal proceedings to protect your interests. But with commitment from both sides, an agreement can be reached over the consequences of the breakdown of a relationship.
