The divorce/separation itself
Discussing the decision to divorce forms an important part of the settlement of the divorce as a whole. It is important not to start arranging matters such as maintenance, money and pensions, but to first focus on the cause of the divorce. After all, a divorce is largely an emotional process too.
SmeetsGijbels' lawyers are trained in the emotional aspects of a divorce. They are able to assess in which stage of a divorce the parties are. A client who has only just heard that his or her spouse wants a divorce, is on a completely different plane emotionally than a client who took the decision to divorce himself and who has perhaps thought about it for months.
In order for a divorce to be settled smoothly, it is important for all parties to be on more or less the same emotional level.
