What we do
At Coyle White Devine, our team of expertly trained and experienced family solicitors in Amersham make it their duty to guide you through the necessary evils of family dispute law, and help you get the best possible outcome if you are going through a devorce or separation. We believe that family values and respect are at the center of every service we provide, and we know how trying and stressful a separation can be – especially if there are children involved. The last thing that anybody wants to do when going through a devorce, is think about their finances and other legal requirements such as deeds and child-support plans. However, it is imperative that all these matters are addressed before a devorse can be finalised, so at Coyle White Devine we make it our duty to worry about these things or your behalf.
Resolving your finances in court
It is our philosophy here at Coyle White Devine that the best possible outcome for a divorce or separation is one which can be reached through rationale, two way conversation and dialogue between the couple. We are a family solicitors in Amersham who mediate between the couple who are filing for divorce and attempt to facilitate a good line of communication whereby emotions do not preceed fact and the needs of any children who are involved are placed at the front of every decision which is made. Our family solicitors in Amersham have had numerous successes through encouraging such conversations, however it is not always possible. The one prevailing factor in every family dispute case is that no two cases are the same. Generally a divorce is only sought after due to a complete, irremediable breakdown of a marriage – in which, typically, the two parties are not on the best of terms. As such, getting financial matters addressed rationally often proves to be difficult, and requires to be settled in court. This is known as a Financial Remedy Order, and involves putting the financial matters to a judge within a courtroom, who assesses all the relevant financial information before establishing a final verdict.
Resolving child custody
When considering child custody during a divorse settlement, the needs of the child are always put at the forefront of everything. It is never a simple task, and varies massively depending on each case. However there are certain factors which must be taken into account every time child custody is being determined. These are defined in compliance with the ‘best interests of the child’ principle, which is a child-rights principle derived by the UN. Some of the most influential factors within this principle which are considered when deciding on child custody include; the child’s existing and evolving skills, their identity, including age, gender and personal history, and the child’s development potential and their gradual transition into adulthood and an independent life. All of these factors are carefully considered, being specific to each individual case, before the judge decides what form of custody is best suited in the interest of the child.
