So-called DIY divorces are often seen as a low-cost and convenient way of ending a marriage. But if you don’t get legal advice from a specialist Divorce Solicitor, you could be creating a whole host of problems, both for you and your ex-partner.
That’s because an experienced, highly qualified Divorce Solicitor will be familiar with the more technical aspects of getting a divorce, so can advise you on crucial matters such as applying for a Financial Order.
Without this kind of advice, a person who goes on to remarry could find themselves vulnerable to financial claims from their ex-spouse, even after their divorce has been finalised. A DIY divorce also provides greater opportunity for a person to be less than honest when it comes to financial disclosure of assets and investments. As a result, the other person might receive a divorce settlement that’s not entirely fair.
