The Family Justice Council has launched a new financial guide to help people going through a divorce without a lawyer.
The guide, which can be downloaded here, is specifically aimed at non-legal readers and its primary purpose is to provide a road map through what is often uncharted territory. It applies to marriages as well as civil partnerships.
Lisa Broddle, Stone Rowe Brewer Partner, and Head of Family Team, said; “The guide is a good resource, particularly since the cuts to legal aid and where many people have no choice other than to represent themselves. Statistics show that 79% of family cases now have at least one unrepresented party.”
She continued; “The Resolution website is also a great source of information as are the guides on the Stone Rowe Brewer website, which can be viewed here. However, these guides are no substitute for timely and individual specific legal advice.”
If you would like to speak about this issue or any family related situation, please contact Lisa Broddle or Tanja Williamson at Stone Rowe Brewer, who will be able to answer any questions you may have. Please call 020 8891 6141 or e-mail the Family Team, email@example.com.
