New website from leading family law firm dispels common divorce myths
Whether in relation to celebrity or the general public, stories of divorce and family law are increasingly common in the tabloids, which is one (of perhaps many) reasons why common misconceptions are being perpetuated. In a bid to explore some of these inaccuracies, Warwickshire-based family law firm Woolley & Co has launched the Divorce Myths website.
The firm, which specialises in divorce, legal separation and family law, has developed the website in order to clarify and correct common misunderstandings around divorce and has been built to supplement the firm’s main website, which includes full details of the firm’s legal team and the fixed fee divorce services available.
Andrew Woolley, senior partner from the firm which specialises in divorce, family law and prenuptial agreements, said, “It is quite often the case that we assume we know all about divorce. There is also the assumption you can apply what you know about divorce to any case. However, what many do not consider is that in reality, each case is unique and is not necessarily comparable to another and so dispensing the same advice is not going to be applicable to all cases.
“The advantage of the Divorce Myths website is that it addresses common myths encountered in different divorce cases. You can even post your own divorce myth, which our team of family law specialists will endeavour to address.”
According to the Divorce Myths website, the top five common myths about divorce and separation are as follows:
- We are common-law man and wife so I have the same rights as if we were married.
- I didn’t commit adultery because I was already separated from my wife when it happened.
- The wife always gets the house when a couple divorces.
- Getting divorced is going to cost me a fortune.
- The children always get to live with their mother.
Other popular myths addressed on the website including those surrounding the cost of divorce, grandparents’ rights, civil partnerships, annulment, spousal maintenance and prenuptial agreements. For more information, take a look at the website: http://www.divorcemyths.co.uk
