The Split – Divorced From Reality?

The Split on BBC One has recently thrust lawyers, and specifically lawyers who deal with family law into the spotlight.

Although the high-octane drama has received high praise from viewers and critics alike, how close does it come to reflecting the reality of instructing a lawyer to assist in family proceedings?

It will be a relief for all that divorce proceedings, prenuptial agreements and arrangements for children do not have to become inevitably acrimonious. The family department at Farnfields provides sympathetic legal advice to ensure that the practical implications of any family law issues are dealt with properly.

If your relationship has broken down, we work with you to identify the best approach to help you navigate any disputes with your partner and to ensure that the process runs as quickly and simply as possible so that you can start planning for the future. To avoid unpleasant surprises and ‘plot twists’ we work to understand the facts of your situation, establish what is important to you and advise on realistic outcomes and strategy.

Although it is necessary for a compelling television programme to include tension and excitement, your divorce does not need to become a piece of theatre.

We offer a free, initial, over-the-phone chat or free half hour meeting with one of our experts so it won’t cost you a penny to find out how we can help you. Plus we’ll explain the costs and timescales involved up front so you always know what to expect.

Contact us today if you are looking for an experienced family solicitor who will provide confidential and friendly advice.
