How our family law solicitors in Reading can help

Divorce processes

Going through a divorce is an emotionally laborious experience, and there are many associated legal and practical tasks to arrange. Our specialist team at IBB Law can guide you through each stage of the divorce process, to include:

  • Assistance to completing a joint or sole divorce application
  • Help to apply for a Conditional Order
  • Support to arrange your finances and child arrangements when going through a divorce
  • Guidance to apply for a Final Order (officially ending your marriage)

Civil partnership dissolution

If you’ve been in a civil partnership for at least one year, our solicitors can support you to apply for a civil partnership dissolution, should the relationship have broken down irretrievably.

The process is much the same as getting divorced, including the option to make a joint or individual application, and the necessity to apply for a Conditional Order, and later a Final Order.

Our civil partnership dissolution solicitors in Reading can answer any questions or concerns you have about the process, and guide you through as smoothly as possible.

Financial settlements

When getting divorced or dissolving a civil partnership, it is necessary to separate your own finances and the finances of your ex-partner.

At IBB Law, we have an excellent reputation for handling all the financial tasks associated with divorce and civil partnership dissolution. We have much experience helping clients to reach financial settlements to fairly divide their properties, pensions, and other financial assets and resources.

Our team are highly skilled in handling finances during divorce, including for those clients with complex financial situations, involving businesses, multiple properties and inherited wealth.

Arrangements for children

Naturally, clients may be feeling concerned about their children when they go through a divorce or dissolution. At IBB Law, we can offer practical and sensitive support to help you ensure that your child’s living expenses are covered and that their best interests are put first.

Our family law solicitors in Reading can offer assistance to negotiate child maintenance. We can also help clients to resolve any disputes regarding their children, with the help of mediation or collaborative law processes.

Judicial separation

Under some circumstances, a legal separation is preferable to getting a divorce. For example, some clients may not want to get divorced due to religious reasons. In other cases, couples may want more time to consider the future of their relationship.

Our separation solicitors in Reading can support clients who would like to apply for a judicial separation, or to create a voluntary separation agreement.

Prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements and wealth protection

Both prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can be a helpful way to safeguard wealth and assets, however, it is important that both documents are drafted properly.

Prenuptial agreements are drafted prior to marriage and designed to outline how assets should be split if the couple were to divorce later. Postnuptial agreements are similarly used; however, these are drafted during the marriage as opposed to before.

Our family law solicitors in Reading have much experience supporting couples to draft clear agreements to protect their wealth, and establish financial boundaries with their partner. For more information, please get in touch.

Cohabitation for unmarried couples

Many couples will opt to cohabit without getting married, and for these couples, it’s important to think about the implications of separation, especially where children or joint properties are involved.

Our cohabitation agreement solicitors in Reading can support clients to create tailor-made cohabitation agreements. You can use these agreements to establish your children’s living arrangements should you split up, and consider how assets will be divided, to include:

  • Savings
  • Pensions
  • Investments
  • Properties

Domestic abuse

Domestic abuse cases are both traumatic and emotionally complex. When you’re going through such a distressing time, it’s highly likely that you’ll need support, both legally and otherwise.

Our family law solicitors in Reading have handled a wide range of domestic abuse and violence cases. We can give you the support you’ll need to swiftly cut all legal and financial ties with your partner, whilst prioritising the safety of you and your children.
