Whilst it is clearly important to gather all the information it is possible to gather from a divorcing parties life together in order to ensure that there is a fair financial settlement, I truly believe that the sentiments in the below message are true.  As a family solicitor, I come across very many people who are understandably bitter about the breakdown of their relationship but I and my colleagues do all we can to try and help people move forward without looking back as at the end of the day the bitterness in a person usually only affects them and can ultimately destroy their hopes of a fulfilled future.
