The Divorce Surgery is unique. We help you to cut out the conflict.
Ending an unhealthy relationship is often the healthy choice. But when couples separate they face complicated decisions about splitting their finances and making arrangements for their children. Most couples will need expert legal advice to find tailored solutions which are fair to both of them. What they do not need is an adversarial process which raises tensions, unless completely unavoidable.
The traditional route is for couples each to appoint their own solicitors from day one, and thus begins an adversarial process. This often takes many months and can be very costly. The Government’s ‘no fault divorce’ proposals, whilst welcome, will not change this process.
The Divorce Surgery short circuits the traditional route. Instead of appointing your own lawyers, one impartial and experienced family law barrister advises you both as to the way a court would view your case. We aim to complete the process in 6-8 weeks and will advise you of the total fee up front before you commit.
You are then each empowered to come to an agreement which is fair. No lengthy litigation, no acrimony, no delay and no disproportionate legal fees.
Founded by two experienced and specialist family law barristers, The Divorce Surgery is authorised and regulated by the Bar Standards Board.
