Each year in the UK thousands of marriages end in divorce. It can be a very traumatic time for all of the involved parties especially if there are children involved. If you are going through a divorce you may have seen so called “quickie” divorces advertised online. At a time when finances may be tight you may be tempted to use a cheap divorce website rather than solicitors in Glasgow. However even though solicitors in Glasgow may be more expensive there are a number of clear advantages to using them.
- To start with a solicitor will have spent many years training and obtaining a law degree. To be a “divorce case manager” or “divorce expert” you need no qualifications or experience whatsoever.
- Family solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and must work to a strict code of conduct. Divorce websites are totally unregulated.
- A family lawyer will be able to give you legal advice during your case. A case manager from a website will be unable to do this.
- All solicitors are required to have professional indemnity insurance should anything go wrong with your case. Most online divorce companies do not.
As you can see there are many reasons why you should use a solicitor if you are involved in divorce proceedings. Only in the very most simple and straightforward cases of divorce when there are no children involved or assets to be split would I recommend using a divorce website. In most cases there are too many variables and complications that only a trained solicitor is capable of dealing with them. Although going through a divorce is a painful and traumatic process solicitors in Glasgow can help to make it go as smoothly as possible. Family solicitors are trained to be sympathetic and understanding and have many years of experience of dealing with divorce cases.
