You probably never expected your relationship to fall apart when you first got married or began co-habiting. Unfortunately, relationships do break down at times. When such a breakdown leads to a legal separation, there are rights and responsibilities that you need to pay attention to. As qualified separation solicitors in Aberdeen, DJP Solicitors is here to assist you with the legal aspects of your separation.
A legal separation is a structured agreement allowing married couples and co-habitants to live separately without officially dissolving their relationship legally. In other words, a separation does not end a legal marriage. Only a divorce can do that. As such, you need to make sure your legal affairs are in order should you and your partner decide to separate for the time being.
One of our solicitors can advise you regarding things such as debt and asset division, child custody, and child visitation and access. In cases involving financial disputes, we offer our own variation of 'no win, no fee' representation. Be sure to ask about it when you consult with one of our solicitors.
Settling Disputes with Children
There are complex issues involved with most separations, many revolving around children. Child visitation is at the top the list. According to the Relate charity, 44% of resident parents say their dependent children split time equally between parents or see the non-resident parent at least weekly. As you might imagine, visitation issues between separated parents can be somewhat challenging.
You need the advice of a capable solicitor in order to make sure you are looking out for the best interest of your children while also addressing your own rights and responsibilities. Attempting to navigate the separation process without the advice of a capable attorney is not a wise idea. As experienced separation solicitors in Aberdeen, we want to help you make sure everything is done correctly.
Affordable Separation Solicitors in Aberdeen
The separation process can be costly on a number of fronts. As such, DJP Solicitors does our best to make sure our services remain affordable. We offer three different ways to pay for representation, including the previously mentioned variation of 'no win, no fee'.
In cases where financial disputes are not involved, we offer a traditional pay-as-you-go package or a one-off consultation for a fixed fee. This consultation will help you sort out your case so that you can determine what to do next. Should you decide to continue with DJP Solicitors as your legal representation, we would be happy to serve you.

We encourage you to call or e-mail us so we can get started on your case. The earlier we get involved with your separation, the better able we will be to properly represent you.
