We offer advice to people in Worcestershire and beyond and provide information on the divorce process, financial arrangements arising from separation and how this may impact upon the children. If you want to end an unhappy relationship, or are on the receiving end of a divorce petition, we can help you achieve a result that’s right for you. From initial advice to advising on the steps to take before applying for divorce, our family solicitors will offer clear advice and ensure transparency on costs.
Taking advice early on may significantly help take the pressure off you at such a stressful time so you know where you stand. All discussions are confidential. We will not take any action unless you instruct us to do so. We understand that, in some instances, just taking initial advice is a big step.
We appreciate that you will need a high level of support and we will explain and guide you through the process. Our divorce solicitors can advise on the grounds for divorce and suitable facts upon which you can rely to issue proceedings. In all cases, we will work to achieve an amicable settlement without the need to go to court if possible. We offer one-to-one support at a time when everything seems to be against you. We will stand in your corner.
Your solicitor will manage your case from the beginning and will offer you practical and sensible advice so that you can make informed choices. Russell & Co believe that the best outcomes are based on decisions you are confident enough to make yourself. Your dispute will be dealt with in a constructive way, where possible by agreement. The best solution is always an individual matter; whether it’s reached through mediation, negotiation or an application to court, we advise you about each option and explain what is best for you now and any potential impact on you in the future.
Once we have agreed on the approach you would like to take, our solicitors will give you a clear indication of what your costs will be from the outset. As the case progresses, we will ensure you remain aware and in control of your costs. Our clients value our frank and transparent approach to fees. When you come to Russell & Co, you can rest assured that your case will be treated with the utmost care, sensitivity and discretion throughout.
We offer a free 30-minute consultation on all family matters and you may be eligible for legal aid. We also undertake some work on a fixed fee basis.
