Dealing with divorce
The Midlands had one of the highest incidences of divorce in England and Wales in 2012 according to figures recently published by the Ministry of Justice and Wales.
Birmingham County Court had the most divorce petitions issued — 2,799 for 2012 up to October. Third highest was Leicester with a total of 1,831 divorce petitions.
Following the release of the divorce rate figures, the Ministry of Justice has once again urged separating couples to try to avoid expensive and stressful court proceedings for dealing with marriage breakdowns particularly when it comes to financial matters and arrangements for their children. (the alternative?)
At Cartwright King we have a specialist team of family solicitors across the Midlands who can assist in trying to guide you through the process in a cost effect way, hopefully reducing acrimony and stress.
