Do I need a lawyer to obtain a Divorce?
In straightforward cases where there are no children or no dispute about children or no dispute between the parties and the Divorce is by consent, it is simple to obtain a divorce without using a Solicitor.
However it is always advisable to seek legal advice.
You will need a Solicitor if you and your spouse do not seek the Divorce by agreement and there is a child under the age of 18.
The Court also has the discretion not to allow a Divorce to become final unless it is satisfied that there are proper arrangements made for children under 18 years.
Before you try to settle any dispute about property, financial and children’s matters, you should obtain advice from a Solicitor about your legal rights.
Both parties usually need to have independent legal advice before a Court will make a financial settlement legally binding.
