Sometimes the divorce isn't a decision that's mutually agreed or accepted by each party, the financial situation may be difficult to sort out and there could be children involved and all sorts of other complexities. There's no running away from the fact that a divorce can prove to be emotionally and financially draining, which is why it's so important to source the legal help and professional advice from qualified solicitors who are experts in the field of family law and divorce.

If you're facing divorce procedures, consider following these tips below to help you make the best decision for you when looking for family law solicitors in South Wales:

Thoroughly research your solicitor firm shortlist

With a large number of legal firms around offering family law services, it's vital you take your time and narrow down a list before continuing to thoroughly research those who immediately appeal to you. Many solicitor firms will have an active and easily accessible online presence along with testimonials and feedback from past clients that you can review, while old fashioned word-of-mouth through friend or family recommendations are often reliable and well worth considering.

Contact the legal firms you're considering and have a conversation with them so that you can get a better feel for how comfortable you are while initially discussing your situation - though understand that they won't be able to go into too much detail during an initial enquiry to avoid conflict should your ex-partner also contact them regarding their services. Do you feel as though they were easy to talk to? Did they seem professional and experts in the field? Did you feel as though you could trust them?

Ensure transparency with legal fees

The cost alone certainly shouldn't dictate which solicitor firm you choose, as after all, you're paying for experience, skills, expertise and the like. However, you do want to trust that they are being upfront and transparent with all of their fees so that you're not greeted with any costly surprises further down the line.

Choose a solicitor who can fight the right fight

The ultimate goal is to no doubt achieve a result that is fair for you, your ex-partner and any children that may be involved. In some cases the divorce is amicable and everything runs smoothly with no real problems, while other divorces are messy and a fairly traumatic time for those involved. It's important to think carefully about the goals you'd like to achieve and what an ideal strategy may be to get there. For example, how easy do you think it'll be to reach an amicable agreement with the other party? You may find that you'd prefer your solicitor to either be a skilled negotiator or someone who is willing to really back your corner with spirit and determination to reach a desired outcome.
