Our Approach

The process does not need to be drawn out and can very often be resolved within one or two meetings, depending on the issues at stake and the parties’ willingness to compromise.

Equally so, we recognise that many separating couples are unable to reach agreement for a variety of reasons, and a clear cut ruling from the court, really is the only option!  In these situations we are able to represent you from the start of your case, all the way to your final hearing.  Because we do our own advocacy in-house we are able to offer affordable estimates or fixed fees and you will ultimately be represented by someone who knows your case inside out and has been by your side from the beginning.

Our goal is always to get our clients their desired outcome in a method that is individually customised and all of our matrimonial advice comes from qualified and specialist family law solicitors.

Funding Your Divorce

It is a common misconception that a divorce has to run into tens of thousands of pounds.

We have many divorces that cost less than £1000 + VAT, to include the financial settlement, and even when we have to go to court, we are usually able to resolve matters within a sensible budget.

We recognise that any expense could not come at a worse time than a divorce, and this is why we are able to arrange funding for suitable cases that is repaid after the divorce and financial proceedings are concluded, at which time capital is often freed up to repay your fees.

Mediation

Not all disputes have to end in expensive litigation.

We offer mediation for divorcing and separating couples who are struggling to reach agreement on how to untangle their complex and interwoven financial and family matters.

As Family Law specialists, we are able to give impartial information to both parties as to what a court might decide, should attempts to agree fail. We can also provide constructive guidance and a mutual environment that is designed to bring about a resolution to best suit all parties without the stress of court proceedings

Child Contact

In common with our approach to Divorce and Finances we understand that keeping sensitive matters to do with Children out of court is in every parties best interests.

We will use our extensive experience in negotiations to attempt to resolve matters without having to take the matter to court. However, we understand that more complex matters require the court's intervention and we assist client's in all manner of Child Contact Applications.

We aim to resolve matters within a sensible budget and we will keep you in control of the costs throughout the whole process.

Pre and Post Nuptial Agreements

The law surrounding pre and post nuptial agreements in the UK is complex and uncertain, therefore couples looking to enter into these agreements are recommended to obtain legal advice.

At Clements Solicitors we have experience in drafting and reviewing all types of pre and post nuptial agreements, and will be happy to help at a reasonable fixed cost.
