Divorce & Family Solicitors – 174 Family Law
Divorce is never an easy decision to make and our experience at 174 Law is that your first contact with a family lawyer often comes with some reluctance and anxieties.
Our expert team of Family Lawyers are proud of not only their legal expertise but their sensitive and approachable nature which has been recognised by numerous awards and earned us the reputation of being one of the highly trusted teams in the North West.
Why do I need to get legal advice to Divorce?
Divorce does not only come with an emotional side. Whilst there are many online services which offer very cost effective divorces, the process itself is relatively straight forward and can be described as mostly administrative. However Divorce is a legal status.
A divorce therefore has consequences which you need to be aware of before engaging in any process to end your marriage and if you don’t get it right can be a costly process to instruct a lawyer after the event to rectify where you have gone wrong.
Did you know that if you end a marriage you may automatically lose some pension rights or if you simply decide to live separate and apart you are still spouses and your ex would still inherit your estate on death in the absence of any will. Or if you enter into a new relationship you need to understand the impact this may have upon your financial claims!
To speak to one of our expert family law solicitors, you can either call us on 0151 8 32 32 53 or fill in our contact form and we will call you back.
