The Divorce Process Compared

The existing process for divorce in England and Wales is in desperate need of change. Traditionally, when a couple decide to separate or divorce, they begin by approaching separate solicitors. The downside of this process is that it immediately sets a context where couples work against one another. Whether it is children or finances that are under discussion, the longer the negotiations continue, the more expensive and acrimonious the process can come. If an agreement cannot be reached and the court process is required, professional costs can rapidly escalate into the tens of thousands of pounds, or even higher. In such a difficult and stressful situation, children’s needs can be easily forgotten, and parenting relationships can be left severely damaged. As legal professionals, we have seen this happen time and time again. And that is why we and our partners at The Wells Group are working together to change the way you separate or divorce.

Our model at The Wells Group provides holistic support from therapists, lawyers and mediators and financial advisors, tailored to each couple’s specific needs. We support couples to find solutions for the whole family without acrimony and huge expense. Couples work together rather than against each other, supported by a range of hand-picked professionals for a clear, fixed cost. By following our unique process, our clients typically resolve all issues around their finances in a fraction of the time and cost of the traditional adversarial approach.

What’s more…. We support couples to achieve a cooperative parenting relationship moving forward. A relationship that puts their children’s best interests at heart.
