In cases of divorce or termination of cohabitation, both facts and personal circumstances come into play. Although it is becoming increasingly "normal" to divorce, it remains a difficult process. A divorce or termination of a cohabitation has a major impact on the family, children and finances. People who divorce face guilt and grief for loss. These social emotional consequences - quite apart from the financial consequences - make divorce a major event in a person's life. Proper guidance in this regard is therefore of great importance.

What can our family law attorneys do for you?

Our family lawyers can assist you in both mediations and proceedings in the event of divorce. They advise on matters such as:

  • The divorce procedure
  • Children and alimony
  • Financial security
  • Parental leave
  • Parenting duties
  • Division of the home
  • Care responsibilities
  • Access arrangements and spousal support

They can also inform you about the possibility of divorce through collaborative divorce: divorce by mutual agreement without court proceedings, each with their own lawyer. The family law attorneys at Delissen Martens are members of the Association of Collaborative Divorce Lawyers.

Divorce, now what?

Four issues play a major role in a divorce:

  • The children
  • Child support
  • Division/settlement
  • Pension

In consultation with your partner, you will have to make agreements about these issues. Our family lawyers can advise you on these matters. They can advise you and your partner together or support one of you. In case of disagreement the judge will have to make a decision.

Mediation or procedure

Divorce is inevitable in some cases. Once this important decision is made, you and your partner will have to make a number of choices. A divorce by mutual agreement is recommended in almost all cases. Mediation involves making agreements under the guidance of a mediator, which are then recorded by the court. Mediation is not only financially more advantageous, it also takes less time than proceedings. The outcome is also often more satisfactory, because customization is possible. Moreover, mediation addresses the emotional aspects of the divorce.

If mediation is not an option, litigation is inevitable. Proceedings not only cost more money, they also take a lot of time. Moreover, a fighting divorce is lurking, with all its negative consequences.
