UK Family law is really one confusing mixing pot. The worst part is that is a very sensitive and emotional issue because the family law process involves people who are related to each other, or who may even be husband and wife in the case of divorce considering that the family law process is different depending on the type of family law issue that you are dealing with. Fortunately, this article should help to answer some of the questions in your mind about the family law process and what you should expect if you are in a legal dispute that involves family law.

Are there alternative court processes?

Of course, and these also count as part of the family law process. For example, before you undergo a divorce proceeding, it is recommended that you first attempt to resolve the legal dispute with your partner using less adversarial means. One method of alternative dispute resolution is to go into couple counseling. Now this does not mean that you will attempt to preserve your relationship with your partner. Sometimes it is really best for you to part ways and mutually going into couple counseling can help you to sort out your dispute as far as property and financial affairs or even child custody are concerned. By having a third party intervene, it can prevent tempers from flaring up and escalating the situation. Another method of alternative dispute resolution would be mediation. It is voluntarily entered into by both parties and the mediator acts as impartially as possible during the mediation process.

Family Law Process – Do I really need a lawyer?

Not all the time. If you feel confident in your knowledge about the legal dispute and you are certain that you know your position in the law, then it is possible to self-represent yourself if you feel that you can prevent the case from being escalated into an actual court trial. Of course, if you wish to resolve the dispute as quickly and efficiently as possible, then it is well-recommended that you seek out the advice of a family law solicitor. Furthermore, by enlisting the aid of a family law solicitor at the very start, you will have an advantage because your lawyer will be with you from the very start of the legal dispute. Also, the solicitor can set out all the available legal options for you and duly inform you about the risks involved with each decision and what might be the best option for you.

Family Law Process – What if I am short on funds?

If you are short on funds, there are still ways that you can find a good solicitor without having to pay out a huge sum of money upfront. For example, some solicitors also have options for monthly installments or you can find a private financial company who can pay your lawyer in full while you get to pay off in monthly installments to the company. There are specific litigations loans companies as well if your case requires legal representation in court proceedings.
