Family Law Solicitors – Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need a family law solicitor?

    Not all family issues will require a solicitor. For example, some parents may be able to decode on custody and access without the need for a formal agreement, In other situations, however, a relationship can be frayed and tense and this is when having a family law solicitor can ease the process and ensure that each party involved is acting accordance with the law.

  • Will I have to go to court?

    Again, certain situations can be settled out of court. If both parents or parties involved can agree on the conditions of the settlement with their solicitors then court will not be necessary. However, certain cases like child custody, barring orders, domestic violence situation will more than likely need to go to court for settlement.

  • How long do divorce proceedings take?

    In 2019, a referendum reduced the time of separation required for a divorce from 5 years to 2 years. This means that you and your spouse must be living separately for at least two years before you can apply for a divorce.
