Whether you are considering a divorce, a legal separation or are facing a relationship breakdown, our team can give you all of the support and guidance you need to get through this very difficult time.
We know that working ‘with’ people, not just ‘for’ them, keeps our support affordable and ensures the best outcome for families and children within our community.
At SO Support we help you figure out and put in place the best arrangements for your children ensuring that you and your ex-partner share the financial support by helping you to understand how the law protects your children in this regard. We can help you to navigate, communication and avoid unnecessary conflict and upset when making contact arrangements for the future paying particular attention to the safety and wellbeing of your children at all times.
If you are married or in a civil partnership you will need to divide your money and property, however dividing money and property is difficult and we can work with you to reach an agreement and put appropriate documentation together to give you security for now and the future.
If you have already tried to sort things out with your ex-partner and are finding it difficult, our team may be able to help you and your ex-partner find a solution without going to court. If this is not possible our team have supported many local families through the family courts with less financial impact on the separating family, allowing for a brighter future through adversity.
Within the family support provision, our team support many local families through the family courts as court trends change and legal aid is reduced further and rarely available. This is achieved by delivering a full portfolio of administrative support, moral support, mentoring and McKenzie Friend court representation.
