Finding out your husband, wife or partner has been having an affair can be extremely destructive.
You’re emotions and reactions will be massively varied. These are not times for assumptions, rash decisions and legal advice from friends or colleagues. The sooner you take advice from an experienced Divorce Solicitor or Lawyer, the sooner you can start to see some clarity and work on moving on through the situation.
Stephanie Dew (Senior Associate) heads up our Family Law division at Monan Gozzett Solicitors and upon completion of a recent divorce, our client had the following to say.
“When I first contacted Stephanie I had just found out my husband was having an affair, my life was falling apart and I didn’t know where to turn. Stephanie offered me empathetic and pragmatic advice and gently guided me through those difficult early weeks when I felt lost and hopeless. She supported me through the divorce process, providing me with practical and sensible options as to what I could do next. I was impressed by her balanced approach, she took a realistic and no-nonsense stance to protect my interests whilst simultaneously dealing with my husband in a sensitive manner, which enabled us to agree on the arrangements in relation to our young son and finances.
I would like to express my thanks to Stephanie for the guidance and exceptional care she provided me during what has been a very difficult year. She was very warm and friendly, she dealt with my many insecurities and worries in a kind and professional manner and without her, I would have not been able to cope. She treated me with compassion and understanding, whilst always remaining professional. I felt able to ask questions and seek clarification and reassurance from her regarding the divorce process which seemed incredibly intimidating at times.
Her approach and her availability was truly remarkable and she has given me great support and advice every step of the way. I want to thank her for being there for me and working hard on my case, this year will never fade from my memory and I will forever be grateful to Stephanie for helping me get through it.
Relationship breakdown is a shocking and distressing time, it is so important to have support from a lawyer you trust and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Stephanie as a dedicated and compassionate professional.”
