Divorce, in addition to the death of a loved one and the loss of many years of work, is the most traumatic experience in a person’s life. At the same time, it is also a gate to a new “chapter”, which for some may be a reason for joy, while for others it is a cause for many fears and anxiety. The most important thing, however, is that the divorce itself runs smoothly and is as cumbersome and complicated as possible for both parties. For this reason, most people decide during these difficult moments to use the support of a qualified lawyer, who will know better than anyone else what steps should be taken to properly safeguard the interests of their client. Which lawyer to choose? Should this choice be influenced by the fact that the spouses have different citizenships?
If we decide to use the help of a lawyer, it is worth to choose one who specializes in family matters. Why? Because we can be sure that he has not only theoretical knowledge, but also the practical experience that he gains every day. Matters related to family law, especially those concerning divorce, are subject to a number of legal regulations, both material and procedural. If we do not follow these rules, divorce proceedings can be a really difficult challenge for us.
Can a British citizen benefit from legal aid in Poland?
Of course. It is worth emphasizing here that legal aid on the territory of Poland is in no way conditional on citizenship, even if the case is of a cross-border nature. There are many law firms that specialize in this type of proceedings, and their offer is often directed specifically to foreigners in need of help. It is worth using such support especially when we live in the UK on a daily basis, while the divorce case is dealt with by the Polish court, and it is here that a number of necessary formalities are required. In this situation, the help of a lawyer who is “in place” may often be necessary.
What should you consider when choosing a law firm?
In addition to the above mentioned specialization and experience, it is good to pay attention to the way lawyers communicate with their clients. In the event that we are constantly abroad, the form of communication with our advocate should be of key importance to us. Ideally, the law office uses modern mobile technologies on a daily basis, not limited to the possibility of holding telephone conversations and personal meetings with the client. This is not only a great convenience, but also saves both sides a lot of time and money. Using the latest solutions also testifies well to the office itself, which meets the client’s expectations, while still developing and not afraid of new challenges.
