No-nonsense legal Representation


January is the perfect time for a fresh start

It’s not just the beginning of a new month, but the start of a new year – and a new decade. If ever there was the perfect time for a fresh start, it’s right now.

Perhaps you have some legal matters that you’ve been putting on the back burner for a while. This could be:

  • filing for divorce (maybe you’ve been apart for years and have both moved on, but you’ve never got around to legally dissolving your marriage)

  • Tackling the sale and division of inherited or joint assets

  • Revising custody agreements that no longer work as appropriately as they once did (maybe the kids feel they’re too old to be part of a formal agreement)

  • Putting a co-habiting agreement in place if you’ve recently moved in with your partner (or vice versa)

  • Applying for Power of Attorney for a parent or elderly relative, whilst they’re still able to comprehend and agree to the action

These are just a few examples of the things people often put off. Though such scenarios may not have a great impact on your day-to-day life, it wouldn’t take much for them to become a huge pain in the neck at any point in the future.

Why enter this new decade with old baggage? Wouldn’t you feel so much better finally taking control of the situation?

It may be that you’re afraid of the legal process, and it’s this fear that’s stopping you from sorting out your issue once and for all. Don’t worry, though: good advice and support from family lawyers, which is what we offer at Rucklidge’s, make all the difference. We understand the law and how legal decisions and arrangements can impact the whole family, following the breakdown of a marriage and the apportioning of any assets. We demystify the entire process and – as a member of Resolution - ensure that any outcome is in the best interests of everyone concerned.

The universe couldn’t give you more of a cosmic sign than it’s giving right now. Make 2020 the year you finally draw a line under your past. Contact 0113 880 0864 or visit our website
