New year, new you – can you have a ‘healthy’ divorce?
Katy Barber | 03.01.2020
I am an associate solicitor in the family law team. I help clients who are facing relationship breakdown.
I deal with financial divorce settlements and work closely with clients on all matters relating to contact with their children following separation.
I help clients reach a constructive agreement in the most non-confrontational way possible – this often involves mediation or collaboration. I give clients clear advice on the options available to them and support them through what can be a difficult and emotional process, helping them achieve the best possible outcome.
I also help clients who are at the beginning of a new relationship and advise them on how to best protect their assets through pre- or post- nuptial agreements or cohabitation agreements. It is important to adopt the right approach and ensure any agreement is fair and reasonable for both parties. This can ensure a potentially sensitive process goes smoothly for all involved.
Katy. Thank you for all you’ve done for me. I’m so lucky I ended up with you! This has probably been the worst time in my life and I honestly believe that without you, J and I would not be where we are now. For that I will be forever grateful.
