Many people think of family disputes as stressful and conflict-heavy, but this does not have to be the case. We offer a range of alternative dispute resolution services which foster a much more cooperative atmosphere between parties in the hope to avoid court altogether.

Our specialist solicitors can:

  • Litigate – Raise Court proceedings on your behalf. Bring your case and represent you in court where both sides of the case will be heard and the outcome determined by the Court,
  • Mediate – This is where you and the other parties work with an independent mediator to come to achieve a resolution.
  • Pursue arbitration – Uniquely our specialist can attend an arbitration on your behalf alternatively, we can offer an arbitration. We have a qualified arbitrator on our team. This is similar to Court but less time-consuming and expensive. You may also agree to go to an independent arbitrator who will hear the parties and make a decision. This results in a legally binding outcome.

Of course, sometimes the appropriate course of action will be to go through the courts and in that case, you can be reassured that our experienced, trustworthy family law team will be with you all the way.

The Process for Divorcing in Edinburgh

The next common question after deciding that you want to break your marriage or civil partnership is how to actually go about doing so. Depending on your situation and whether the divorce is amicable or not, the process you must take to obtain a divorce can change.

As long as you can agree on a financial settlement between yourselves, you can use what is known as a streamlined procedure if you don’t have any children under the age of 16 and your partner has consented to the divorce.

You will be compelled to follow the standard procedure if the divorce is not amicable or if you have minor children. This is also true if you and your spouse are unable to agree on the grounds for divorce or if there are unresolved financial matters. The case is probably going to court rather than just filling out paperwork at your local sheriff court.

I would highly recommend Simplicity Legal. They have been provided a brilliant service for me the last couple of years dealing with power of attorney, sorting out my dads estate after his death and buying and selling my house. I mainly dealt with Kirsten who was excellent explaining all the processes and keeping me updated. Would definitely use Simplicity again in the future

I was recently introduced to Simplicity Legal Glasgow by a colleague who had used the firm to help him with his divorce proceedings. I took that advice and am really delighted that I did. They were incredibly professional and responsive, constantly striking a balance between being empathetic and ruthlessly efficient/candid when the situation warranted it. Everything was described in layman's terms, with advantages and cons clearly highlighted and always expense transparency. I felt supported by the proper level of guidance provided, but the final decision was always mine. I cannot recommend the Simplicity Legal team highly enough. Thank you for all of your help.

My husband and I cannot thank Simplicity Solicitors Glasgow enough for their professional assistance with our claim; we were very pleased with the entire process. They kept us updated on the progress of the process,. The solicitors with whom we dealt with, were very understanding and helpful, and explained everything to us in a way that we understood. They are a very professional company, and I would recommend their services to anyone who needed information or assistance. We are grateful to have them represent us.

In my experience Clarity and Simplicity are a very reliable firm. At the moment it's not easy to find reliable solicitors, and in fact I approached Clarity and Simplicity after a rather bad experience with another company. I was pleasantly surprised by Kirsten's efficiency and the way things were handled. Highly recommended.
