Re-Marrying Over 50: Protecting Your Heart & Your Assets

Re-marriage in later life is on the rise. We find that at this age many clients want to protect their wealth before embarking on a new relationship - perhaps they were stung before or just wish to keep their finances separate from their marriage.

Many also want to ensure that their children from previous relationships still benefit in their will or succession planning.

There are ways to achieve this with the right legal planning!

Re-marriage in later life is on the rise with figures showing that divorcees, widows and widowers over 50 are embracing their new found romance and are not afraid to tie the knot a second time around.

Disastrous Divorce – Why Expert Advice is Crucial

If you have been given poor legal advice during divorce proceedings, that has seen you lose out financially, then you may be entitled to a claim.

Our Professional Negligence Expert looks at a real life case where a wife was able to issue a £2 million claim against her divorce lawyers who failed to inform her of the risks before starting settlement arrangements with their property.

Norma Wilson was a nurse and property developer who had been married to her husband since 1989. Sadly, their marriage broke down in 2006, although the pair had separated on good terms. The family matrimonial home in Ascot was worth £3.2 million and it was decided by the separating couple that they ...

Depression & Divorce – Let's Talk

Depression and Divorce - what a nice combination!

Many people suffer from stress, anxiety, sleep deprivation and periods of deep sadness when going through a relationship breakdown. Many also suffer from 'post-divorce depression' too.

Of course a difficult event, such as divorce, is likely to test your mental health. But getting support when it feels like depression is taking over is key.

There is help available. #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and the occasion has been receiving lots of needed attention in the media with thanks to the backing of Prince William’s new campaign along with many celebrities, charities and businesses voicing their concerns over the UK’s mental health.

Getting someone's financial and legal affairs in good order is one of the first steps to take after receiving a diagnosis of dementia. If you are unsure of what to do or are concerned about dementia then please get in touch.

Myth of the Common Law Marriage & How to Protect Yourself

Marriage isn't for everyone. But did you know that couples that live together do not have the same legal rights as a married couple? Even if they have children together, a joint mortgage or have lived together for many years.

So, if you don't want to get married but want to protect yourself there are options.

Our latest Family Law article gives you some food for thought...

Latest research has revealed that nearly half of the population of England and Wales are under the wrong impression that unmarried couples who cohabit have a ‘common law marriage’ and acquire the same rights as couples who are legally married.

Rise in NHS Waiting Times Could Fuel Negligence Claims

With NHS waiting lists growing, sadly patients will suffer longer, some with devastating effects.

40% of clinical negligence claims in the UK are brought because of delays in diagnosis or delays in treatment.

If you or a loved one have suffered due to delays in getting treatment then please speak to us - 01256 844888 - [email protected]

We are all aware that our NHS is under great strain and has been for many years now. With the increase in demand, budget cuts, staff shortages and the loss of local health services it is not surprising that the National Audit Service recently found that waiting lists are ballooning.

Birth Related Claims Account for Half of NHS Compensation Pay Outs

Unfortunately for some mothers their experience of the labour ward isn't always one full of joy. Complications, errors or injury can cause both physical and psychological pain long after their delivery.
Our Clinical Negligence team often work on cases of medical negligence for pregnancy or birth claims.
Our latest article explains more...

https://www.lambbrooks.com/birth-related-claims-account-for-half-of-nhs-compensation-pay-outs/

When things go wrong or mistakes occur in the NHS they can have tragic consequences on patients and their families. Perhaps the most heart-breaking are those that happen during child birth, leaving either mother or baby with avoidable injury, or in some tragic cases, death.

Breaking News: No Fault Divorce Approved

Some breaking news this morning as divorce law is given an overhaul:

Under current rules to obtain a divorce one party must prove adultery, unreasonable behaviour or desertion. Otherwise they will need to be separated, living apart for over 2 years (with consent of spouse) or over 5 years (without consent of spouse).

These new rules mean that many people who have just grown apart or want different things can now move on without having to play the 'blame game' or wait years to legally part ways.

After years of campaigning, media attention and a recent 12 week public consultation it has been announced this morning that the ‘no fault’ divorce has been approved by Government and will be introduced ‘as soon as parliamentary time allows’.
