A divorce has a far-reaching impact on your life and on your family. In addition to sadness, anger and stress, there will be numerous questions and uncertainties. What is in the best interests of the children? How can I safeguard my financial freedom? What will happen to my income and built-up capital? Can I continue my company’s activities after divorce? And how should I settle the matter??
What can our family lawyers do for you?
It is a reassuring thought that the lawyers at Delissen Martens specialising in family law provide advice on matters such as divorce proceedings, children and child support, financial security, parenting plans, responsibilities for a child’s upbringing, a house, care duties, parental contact arrangements and maintenance for the ex-partner. Or on the possibility of separation via a collaborative divorce: divorcing without litigation in court, but with the assistance of one’s own lawyer. We also advise entrepreneurs and directors and principal shareholders on maintenance and all related matters. We also provide assistance in international divorce matters.
Our approach and the result
We prefer to be involved at an early stage, when the decision to divorce is not yet final and there might still be a basis for trust and security.
We work with both partners to start a mediation process in search of the how and why of the divorce, and we look at whether it is possible to provide more clarity. This ensures that people do not need to have concerns and problems weighing on their mind. We also look into the possibilities of, for instance, a temporary separation and solutions in the longer term.
Is a final divorce inevitable? Our mediators or family lawyers will provide assistance with all additional questions, problems, joint responsibilities, for instance, for children and the built-up assets. Ideally this will be by consultation and if that is not possible, through legal proceedings. In doing so together, we ensure that a divorce – as unpleasant as it may be – will still go smoothly.
