We have all probably experienced divorce at some stage in our lives, whether it be ourselves, family or friends.
Divorces fall into two categories for me. The first the amicable divorce where you both just agree you no longer want to be married. And agree to split everthing evenly and move on.
Or there is the battlefield, this is the one I know well. I have been through a divorce (I will be polite and say him, and not my usual term of phrase). Although it was all his doing. I went through a marriage full of emotional abuse and him finally admitting he slept with another man in our bed.
Our divorce should have been simple split the sale of our property equally and move on as we (luckily) had no children. Oh no, he fought every step of the way. I wont go into all the details, but it got horrible. At one point in court I blew my top in the waiting room with my Barrister. Saying I wanted to change my divorce petition and do him for marrying me under false pretences. Maybe the story behind this will make a great future post, it is certainly a story you would not have heard before.
No matter how amicable or how volatile the separation is, you need to think carefully about legal help, especially if children are involved and make sure you get a good family solicitor, like The Law House, who are a divorce and family solicitors based in London and South of England
