Frequently asked questions
How can we help you? Below are some of the most common questions we receive from clients about our family law practice.
How long will my divorce take?
Under the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020 there is a minimum period of 20 weeks between the start of the divorce process and the granting of a Conditional Order. Therefore, it is likely your divorce will take a minimum of six months to complete. This is, however, influenced by whether you and your spouse can work out a financial settlement and arrangements for your children amicably between yourselves. In cases of high net worth divorce, or where there are issues around domestic abuse and/or disputes related to children, the divorce process can last much longer. Our Family Law Solicitors are committed to resolving your divorce as quickly as possible but never at the expense of achieving the outcome you want.
Can you help me if the local authority has threatened to remove my children?
Most people who receive a visit from their local authority regarding the care of their children are terrified that their children will be removed and taken into care. This cannot be done without a Court Order; however, if social workers feel your children are in immediate danger, the police can remove them and place them in protection for up to 72 hours.
Our specialist Care Proceedings Solicitors understand how the local authorities work and will fight on your side to ensure your children remain in your care. The most important thing is to contact us as soon as Social Services become involved with your family.
I am not based in Coventry. Can you still represent me?
Our family law team regularly supports clients across the nation, not only those who are based in Coventry. The distance between you and our office will have no effect on our ability to provide highly effective advice or representation.
