While most couples and families will enjoy the summer holidays, sadly for some the break often means just that – it is time to end a marriage and go separate ways.
Indeed spending a great deal of time together when a marriage is on rocky ground can often be the final straw.
Existing cracks in a relationship can be emphasised when juggling work and childcare over the course of the school summer holidays, along with the added financial pressures.
Divorce may already be on the cards but the parents are unwilling to start proceedings until the children are back at school, when couples take stock as to whether the marriage is worth preserving.
Although the divorce rate is no longer as high as when it peaked in the 1990s, this is not necessarily due to people opting to stay together as many people are simply not choosing to get married.
In fact we have seen an increase in problems faced by clients who separate but fail to deal with the separation and financial aspects of a breakdown.
Leaving financial issues unresolved can create animosity at a time when separating couples want to move forward.
It is important that anyone considering divorce or separation should receive the right legal advice as early as possible from an experienced Family Law Solicitor.
At Phillips, our Family Law team are on hand to give advice that you can trust, particularly when it comes to your children, home and sorting out your finances.
We will listen to your concerns and discuss your options, letting you know what your rights are, as well as those of your former partner.

Whatever the issues you face we can help you and your family find a way forward.
