Whether you need simple straightforward advice on separation or an expert hand to support you through an acrimonious divorce, we can help you reach all the right decisions that will secure your personal, legal and financial future, making it easier for you and your family to move on.
Bird & Co are specialist divorce lawyers in Lincoln who have helped many people successfully through the divorce and separation process to reach positive solutions and the best way forward.
We take pride in offering a friendly, efficient and affordable legal service, offering fixed fee quotes, where possible, so that you can be confident in how to proceed with your case.
We can help you with:
- Divorce, separation and relationship breakdown. We are here to support you through your proceedings, from start to finish, guiding you through all of the things you need to consider and offering you practical steps forward. We will be on hand to help you with everything from filing and responding to divorce petitions, considering and choosing your grounds for divorce, making arrangements for your children and working out a financial settlement. In cases of a family break-up, an informal or trial separation may be an option to consider in preventing a divorce.
- Financial settlements in divorce. The financial settlement can often be the most complex part of divorce proceedings, especially when assets such as a family home, investments and pensions need to be taken into account. When it comes to the financial matters of your divorce, we will work with you to consider your children, the length of your marriage and budgets for yourself, your spouse or partner and family. Drawing on our wealth of experience of medium to high financial settlement cases, we will aim to make this process as smooth and stress free for you, as possible, offering you fast, tailored advice so you can reach a quick resolution to the financial settlement in your divorce proceedings. Wherever possible, we aim to help clients agree to their divorce settlement voluntarily through mediation but, if and when necessary, we can provide the robust representation and expertise needed to achieve a fair settlement in Court.
- Arrangements for children. Deciding on what will happen to your children is often the most difficult aspect of a divorce or separation. We will work with you to help you make all the best decisions to protect and safeguard your children’s best interests during a distressing upheaval in their lives. Working together, we can help you decide where they will live, contact arrangements and how they will be best supported financially. We are strongly committed to working with you to help you achieve a plan for your children that is made voluntarily and outside of Court, but, in circumstances where this is not possible, we will support you should legal action be needed to achieve a resolution.
- Non-confrontational family dispute resolution and mediation. Where children are involved, it will always be our aim to resolve family law issues amicably without the need for Court action. Family mediation is a common approach to resolving contentious issues relating to family separation and divorce. In these cases, both parties will meet with a trained neutral mediator to discuss issues relating to financial settlements and arrangements for children, with the aim of reaching an amical agreement on how issues can be resolved.
Our specialist team of divorce solicitors will be sensitive to your needs during this difficult and emotional time. We aim to help you resolve your divorce with compassion and efficiency by taking the time to listen to you and understand your circumstances before advising you of your rights and options, putting you in touch with other organisations should additional support be needed. We have helped many people, like you, through the process of divorce or separation to achieve a positive outcome.
