You should speak to a Family Law Solicitor as early as possible.
It is a good idea to speak to a lawyer if you are thinking about separating from your partner, and certainly if you have. ‘Legal’ advice from well-meaning friends or family is not always helpful. Everyone’s situation is unique, and an experienced family lawyer should be the only person you take legal advice from.
If you see a solicitor early, you can plan ahead and make excellent decisions. If you leave it too late, you could affect your legal outcomes, miss important dates or incur unnecessary expenses.
