Divorce and Separation

Bellwether Solicitors offers specialised legal services in divorce and civil partnership dissolution, understanding the complexities and emotional difficulties of ending a relationship. They provide a supportive and trusted service for navigating through the legal process of divorce, the sole legal means to end a marriage. They offer advice on all options available to ensure a smooth proceeding. Accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and members of Resolution, Bellwether Solicitors emphasises tailored advice to individual needs, covering financial settlements, and child arrangements and even offering assistance in the new 'no-fault divorce' system for a fixed fee.

Their comprehensive approach aims to achieve the best outcomes with a fair and realistic attitude, focusing on their clients' current and future needs.

Cohabitation Issues

Bellwether Solicitors specialises in cohabitation issues, offering crucial legal services for couples living together without getting married. They highlight that contrary to popular belief, 'common law marriage' does not grant couples the same rights as married couples in the eyes of the court. Therefore, seeking legal advice early is essential for protecting one's current and future interests. Bellwether Solicitors provides comprehensive support on various matters, including separation agreements.

Their family law specialists aim to guide couples through the implications of their relationship breakdown, offering practical solutions for the best long-term outcomes. They ensure clients are well informed about their options, providing clarity and reassurance regarding their rights as a non-married couple, thus enabling them to move in together without legal worries.

They specialise in providing legal support for individuals needing injunctions or emergency applications. Recognising the stress and overwhelm of taking legal action, they offer expert support throughout the process. As family law experts in Kingston-upon-Thames, they act decisively to protect clients and their families, aiming for swift results. They handle emergency injunctions and non-molestation orders, which forbid certain behaviors towards the applicant and their children. They can often secure a same-day emergency injunction in cases of immediate threat.

I cannot recommend highly enough Emma and her team at Bellwether Solicitors. I had the pleasure of dealing with Louise who was understanding and compassionate but also professional, sharp, fair, and a great awareness of family values. Exceptional service.

Emma guided and led me through what could have been a potential minefield. Her expertise and calm demeanour ultimately led to what I can only describe as a superb outcome for myself, which was achieved in the most stress free manner possible. I strongly recommend it.

We recently contacted Emma at Bellwether Solicitors as we needed advice regarding a child arrangement order. Emma was amazing and spent the time with us explaining everything in detail. She was very professional and always replied to our emails and messages. I would thoroughly recommend them. Thanks again Emma for helping us through a very difficult time.
