Couples facing separation issues are invited to visit a free clinic at the end of this month thanks to Pictons Solicitors
The event, on October 30, is open to anyone who is facing separation issues and will be held at Pictons office on Silbury Boulevard between 2pm and 7pm, with the offer of a 45 minute free appointment to assist on all aspects of separation.
Siobhan Rooney, one of Pictons leading family law solicitors said: “I’ve set up this initiative with a counsellor from Relate and a mortgage advisor from the Mortgage Shop. This is very much a collaboration between us in an effort to provide a complete ‘one-stop shop’ on all matters which may arise in cases of separation, whether that’s actually happening or it is a potential problem.
“The separation clinic is to help people understand their legal position and their legal obligations on separation. We will also discuss options such as mediation, for which I am a qualified Family Mediator. People can also have a free appointment with Relate so that they can be made aware of what counselling and other services are available to help with any issues that may arise whether in relation to children or just themselves. Our mortgage advisor will give invaluable advice on what their housing options will be upon separation and information about eligibility for mortgages and options such as shared ownerships of property.”
The clinic will be by appointment only and each person will need to confirm either who they want to see or they can make three separate appointments to see each person. The initiative is on a first come, first serve basis and early booking for this entirely free opportunity is encouraged.
Siobhan said: “This is truly a great opportunity for anyone who is facing a separation issue to get top professional advice completely free. There is so much help available and this is a great way to find out what you need to know and how to start- or stop - what can be a highly stressful process.”
