A LAW firm in Worcestershire is giving advice on protecting yourself and your assets in the event of a divorce.

Bally Sandhu, a director at Russell and Co Solicitors in Malvern and specialist in family law, said: ‘It is a stark reality that just under half of the quarter of a million marriages this year in the UK will end in divorce.

‘If you are unfortunate enough to find yourself in this position there are a number of issues that you will need to deal with to achieve the best outcome and prepare for your future life once the divorce is over.

‘The most important factor moving forward is to protect yourself and your assets, so ensuring that you obtain professional qualified advice as early as possible makes good sense.

‘Some people delay this process, but in my experience I know that clients often do themselves no favours by taking vague advice from friends, family and colleagues. The internet can help, but it does not go beyond generic information and it can simply be wrong.

‘Taking confidential advice early on, even if the formal process does not begin immediately provides you with the benefit of knowing what to expect.
