Welcome to The Law Superstore personal services blog.
During a divorce or dissolution of a civil partnership, finances often play a big role. After property, pensions may be your most valuable asset. They will most likely come into any financial settlement you and your former partner reach.
Spousal maintenance is designed to help support people who may need help after a divorce, but what exactly does that mean for you?
Here at The Law Superstore, we know that when you’re getting divorced, what happens to the marital home can be a big worry. We’re here to guide you through this process by providing you with the perfect solicitor to meet your needs. Our job is to make things a little easier in a process that is never a walk in the park.
Deciding to divorce can be difficult. Legal jargon only complicates it further. When it comes to divorce papers and understanding what to do next, it’s important not to get overwhelmed. It can be unclear what you need to do next, and who the paperwork refers to, so we have broken it down to make it simple.
Deciding to divorce when you have children can be emotional. Parents worry about how children will take the news and the changing dynamic in the family home.
If you and your spouse haven't lived together for a number of years, you may be able to use legal separation as grounds for divorce.
An annulment acknowledges that the marriage was void, and therefore is wiped from all records as if it never existed. Annulment is often preferable for religious people who do not want to be considered divorced.
Just because probate has been granted doesn't mean you're too late to contest a will, but it does mean you need to act fast.
Contesting a will can vary in price, mainly because some cases will take longer than others. Most solicitors will offer an hourly fee, but some will be able to reclaim the costs from the other side if successful.
There are time limits to contesting a will, and these will depend on your reason for contesting. Whilst you may feel that a will is unfair, it is important to consider the ‘grounds’ for contesting, as it will have to fit within a certain sector to justify your decision.
