Want to know about navigating divorce? : January 10 virtual event

For many of us the New Year is a formative period to make key changes in areas including jobs and careers, financial, health, lifestyle – and relationships.

In our extensive experience, the majority of unhappily married and cohabitating couples do not suddenly decide to split up as the clock strikes midnight on December 31st.

One, or both of them, may well have been thinking about separating for some time while hoping that their relationship may improve. Sadly, in many cases things don’t improve and the strains of the festive period often trigger a decision to make the break.    

If you are in this situation – and want to know more about divorce and the divorce process, sign up for a ‘Navigating Divorce’ virtual event on Wednesday, January 10 2024, from 19:00 – 20:30pm.

Hosted by The Divorce Magazine, Jones Myers partner Nicki Mitchell – a Family Law Mediator, Child Inclusive Mediator and Collaborative Family Lawyer – is an expert panellist.

The session starts with Understanding the Divorce Process when Emma Morris, Legal Director at Burgess Mee will explain No-fault divorce. This will cover how it works, how to apply for a divorce. how long it takes, what forms are needed and the best way to prepare for it.  

Nicki will then focus on The Different Ways to Divorce such as finding the right divorce lawyer and options to choose from such as family mediation, collaborative family law and DIY divorce.

Outlining the Financial Aspects of Divorce, Peter Burgess, Partner at Burgess Mee and Stacey Nevin,  Partner at Kingsley Napley, will outline how to plan for retirement post-divorce including pensions and property, managing financial disclosures and spousal and child maintenance.

During a 30 minute question and answer session facilitated by The Divorce Magazine’s Founding Editor Soila Sindiyo, audience members can submit questions on wide-ranging divorce topics which Nicki and fellow expert panellists will answer. The event will close with a summary of key insights from each panellist.
