Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good evening and thank you for your question. I'm Jeremy, a solicitor specialising in divorce, separation and financial matters. I'd be delighted to give you some guidance. Is she looking for financial advice or what sort of arrangements to agree in relation to any children? Thanks, J
Happy to chat tomorrow. You shouldn't be charged - only for the week which I believe is £5? I don't deal with that side of matters I'm afraid. You would need to speak to customer services about the various charges. I do always recommend that customers ensure they cancel after the first week if they're not going to continue using the service or else JA will take a monthly amount from you. Kind regards, J
I'm around from about 10.30 am tomorrow. I haven't got your number - I can't seem to offer the telephone service as it's greyed out. This seems to happen a bit, I'm afraid. I'll Customer Services to try and reinstate the option. Kind regards, J
Hello again. I'm unable to offer you a phone call from this end as the 'offer telephone call' option at this end is greyed out. All calls have to go through the JA server so they can be logged and I get paid by JA for answering your question. Are you able to offer it to me from your end? Otherwise, I'm happy to carry on answering by messaging. Kind regards, J
Hello again. Please do. In the first instance, I'd always recommend your partner be the petitioner. This is because you can control what you write in the petition and, if you're petitioning based on adultery or unreasonable behaviour, you can ask that your spouse pay your legal costs. It's unlikely your partner would qualify for legal aid nowadays unless there had been evidence of domestic violence (normally police, GP, Social Services' reports) within the last 6 months. If she does potentially qualify, I recommend finding a solicitor who still offers legal aid as your costs will be significantly lower (or potentially nil).
