All divorces are stressful but in the case of military divorces, complex matters which do not typically arise in civilian divorces can make the situation extra challenging. Issues relating to military pensions, arrangements for children, service accommodation, and more can all put divorcing couples at risk of conflict.
At Crisp & Co, we provide specialist family law advice to individuals across London and the UK. As a dedicated family law firm, we have a deep, practical understanding of the pressures which commonly affect separating couples as well as specific expertise with cases of all type and complexity. Our specialist experience includes advising LGBTQIA couples and international couples (for example, where you are serving overseas).
For many couples, the possibility of having to fight their corner in court can be daunting. However, one of our major goals is to help your divorce or dissolution move as smoothly as possible. The majority of divorces can be negotiated out of court nowadays. And with our advice and assistance, you have the best possible chance of reaching a solution without major conflicts arising.
Our service includes providing advice and access to methods of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), such as family mediation and collaborative law. These methods have strong track records for helping clients arrange their divorces amicably and cooperatively.
