Divorce is often associated with expensive divorce solicitors. However, people representing themselves in court is an increasing trend. It is destined to be filled with many tough decisions regardless of whether it is an amicable break-up or not.
Indeed, there are clear benefits to using divorce solicitors. They are experienced in dealing with complex issues that arise. They understand childcare schedules, property, and asset division. However, divorce solicitors are costly. There more complicated the case, the higher the costs.
Acting as your own divorce solicitor may leave you with less confidence. It is a complicated process to manage on your own. Moreover, it is always better to have somebody in your corner. Somebody who will back you. Who, then, can you use instead of divorce solicitors?
The Alternative – A trusted McKenzie Friend
McKenzie Friends do not represent you in the same way as divorce solicitors. They cannot speak to the court on your behalf. You stand up and present your case with their support. Nonetheless, they can help you prepare for court emotionally and help you understand the process. They can assist with the paperwork, take notes, quietly give advice in court, and support you in meaningful negotiations with lawyers. They can also:
- Support you in the development of a positive mindset.
- Provide you with an impartial analysis of how your case may develop.
- Help you develop and articulate your short term and long term aims; and
- Help you respond to the fast-moving court processes.
