A review for our Associate Solicitor, Arabella Turner:

"Arabella has provided me with a very professional and understanding service due to the breakdown of my marriage. She provided me with great guidance and direction to complete my annulment which was done within 4 1/2 months so I could finally close that chapter in my life. I cannot thank her enough for the service provided."

Collaborative law experts from JLS Solicitors

Do you want your separation to be as amicable as possible? Mediation is probably the best route to choose.

It is a process of negotiation where you and your partner come together with the help of an independent mediator to discuss the issues arising from your relationship breakdown. Our mediator, Justine Soper, will meet with both of you to gain some insight into the history of your relationship, what you are hoping to achieve from your discussions and then assist you with those discussions.

We believe in providing a confidential and safe environment for you to talk to each other, keeping the lines of communication open.

If you would like to find out more about Mediation, please do call us on 01252 726 741 or email us privately.

Prenuptial agreement, JLS Solicitors

We advise couples to create a pre-marital agreement when businesses or a lot of wealth are going to be involved in the marriage.

Contrary to popular belief, a 'pre-nup' can take stress out of a relationship, as guidelines have already been set about what should happen to various assets in the event of a break up.

Q) How much does it cost to get divorced?

A) The cost of a divorce varies significantly depending on whether the two parties are in agreement on the divorce, and how many assets there are to split. Using a dispute resolution option, such as mediation, will keep costs down, particularly in comparison to taking the matter to Court.

At JLS, we strive to keep costs to a minimum, while giving you regular updates and realistic advice on the best course of action to take.
