Expert Guidance Through Divorce and Separation

The journey to making the difficult decision to separate or divorce is often laden with complex emotions and can extend over months, sometimes years. It’s a scenario many never envisage facing, but once the decision is made, a myriad of critical questions arise:

  • What are the next steps after deciding to separate?
  • Who should relocate from the family home?
  • Determining living arrangements for the children.
  • How will the children's school fees and living expenses be managed?
  • Deciding who retains the family home in a divorce.
  • Which parent will be responsible for or receive child support payments?
  • The process of deciding on child custody.
  • Is going to court necessary for dividing assets?
  • Managing financial stability, especially if your partner was the main income earner.

Finding answers to these questions is far from straightforward, but our team of seasoned family law solicitors is here to assist you. We provide invaluable guidance to help you understand and navigate through these challenging issues.

In facing such circumstances, it’s crucial to be aware of your legal rights and obligations. Time-sensitive decisions and actions play a pivotal role in family law matters. Our commitment at Koolik & Associates is to offer support and high-quality advice, ensuring you confidently and effectively navigate through the often bewildering maze of questions and decisions that arise during these life-changing moments.
