It’s important to get advice at an early stage. But when exactly should you see a lawyer after separation? If you see one early, you can be empowered with knowledge about what you should do, and also what you should perhaps avoid. It is important to get property advice from a Family Law Solicitor.
Don’t risk being misinformed by well-meaning friends, family or colleagues. Even if they have been through a separation, ever circumstance is unique. Things that may have applied to them may not necessarily apply to you.
It may be that there are some steps that need to be taken in the near future after separation, to protect your interests. In other circumstances, it may be that no steps need to be taken for some time. Then naturally, one or both people may want some breathing space before starting negotiations to formalise their property settlement or parenting arrangements.
However, we recommend you get advice early. This way, you have the reassurance that you are making informed decisions from an early stage.
