We often hear about the financial cost of marriage and similarly the financial cost of divorce. When such large figures are thrown around on paper it is easy to become disconnected with the reality of the situation. Many individuals seeking to separate or divorce simply do not have the financial capacity to spend £5,000, £10,000 or £20,000 on a divorce and are therefore left with some daunting decisions to make, sometimes without the benefit of legal advice.
I have discussed this before but it cannot be stressed enough, there is assistance out there for everyone, whatever your financial capacity. At Brethertons we understand that not everyone has the ability to pay £20,000 in legal costs and we therefore do everything we can to tailor our services to meet your needs. Whether this be a free initial appointment, a loan scheme which is paid off at the conclusion of your divorce or simply acting in a limited capacity as your legal team, all of the above can go some way in reducing the financial burden of divorce.
