Gary Lineker and Danielle Bux File for Divorce.
I am really pleased to see that Gary Lineker and Danielle Bux have been able to sort out between themselves all the issues relating to their divorce and remain good friends. Separation and divorce is difficult and to be able to achieve what they have is excellent.
Sadly though, not everyone is so lucky. Couples aren’t always honest with each other and money may be hidden, relationships can be abusive and people have different ideas about what is right and fair. Sometimes they can’t agree and sometimes what they agree just is not fair and right.
The bottom line is that not everyone can achieve what Mr Lineker and Miss Bux have. Those people need the help of a good family lawyer. Contrary to what Gary Lineker says a good family lawyer is not in it to manipulate people to spend money and end up hating each other.
A good family lawyer will be accredited by the Law Society or Resolution and will look at ways of resolving matters fairly and with the least damage to the family relationship. Yes family solicitors will charge a client for the work that they do. Here at Higgins Miller Solicitors we will always try and help our clients to find the best way of funding their case with monthly payments and fixed fees.
Divorce can be complicated and whilst a sliding mathematical scale sounds like a really good idea it ignores so many important factors which don’t have a mathematical value. A good family lawyer will help you with those and explain the factors that are important and should be considered.
One final point – if like Gary Lineker and Danielle Bux a couple are able to agree the terms of their divorce it’s a good idea to get a solicitors advice on the settlement just to make sure nothings been missed and the terms are fair. It’s also worthwhile asking for a solicitors help to record that settlement in a binding agreement or court order.
