One of the most difficult things you can do, when going through some marital problems, or simply feeling that things are not right at home, is to take the decision to go and get some legal advice.
Seeing a Solicitor is not something that anyone takes lightly, and you can only take that step when you feel it is the best thing for you to do. Sometimes there is just a feeling that things aren't right, or there may have been problems for some time. More dramatically, it may be that you have found out that your spouse is seeing someone else or they may have told you that they no longer love you.
Whatever the reason, getting advice early on is sensible to find out your rights,and options, if the worst case scenario occurred and you needed to take steps towards a divorce or separation.
All discussions with a Solicitor are confidential. They are not allowed to discuss your situation with your spouse or any third party and they will not contact you afterwards unless you wish for them to do so.
If you decide to see a Solicitor it is advisable to see someone who is a member of Resolution (formerly the Solicitors Family Law Association) as they abide by a code of conduct, based on a constructive and non-confrontational approach to family law and they will do all they can to help you.
