Appointing the right family solicitor
But how to pick the right divorce solicitor ? That’s actually quite simple.
Firstly, you need a specialist. But remember, not every lawyer is a family law specialist. We are. Family law and divorce is all that our family team does. They have huge experience of family law and relationship problems, from helping you with actually getting divorced and sorting out acceptable arrangements for the children, to family mediation and prenuptial agreements.
But secondly, and just as important, you need to find a solicitor that you feel comfortable talking to. Divorce proceedings are often highly personal affairs, so having a solicitor who listens without judgement is critical. Before appointing your solicitor, take the time to chat to them and see if you feel right to you.
April 2022 divorce update and our fixed fee divorce
2022 saw a significant change to divorce law and procedure after many years of campaigning. At the centre of the reforms were the injury of what is referred to as “no blame” divorce. This replaces the old system whereby to end your marriage you had to prove the courts satisfaction a problem in your relationship by arguing 1 of “5 facts – including adultery and unreasonable behaviour. The changes also remove the possibility of contested divorce and allow for couples to make a joint divorce application.
Following these reforms, our family law team now offer clients the option of a fixed-price divorce.

Here at Bonallack & Bishop we have a strong commitment to family mediation as an alternative way of dealing with issues that arise from divorce and family law problems in general.
We have no doubt that in the vast majority of cases, mediation helps a couple reach agreement more quickly and cheaply than court proceedings, saving a lot of heartache and stress for our clients in the process.
Although taking the sting out of any divorce or relationship breakdown by appointing a family mediator doesn’t suit everyone – for those couples who are prepared to work together to come up with a solution, rather than focus on their differences and who don’t approach any family law issue as a fight to be one rather than a problem to be solved, it can work remarkably well.
Our experienced family law team includes a fully trained collaborative lawyer- collaborative law is another highly successful approach to resolving family law problems.
