Breaking up is hard to do: How to navigate the road to divorce

03rd June, 2021

No one enters a marriage intending to get divorced, yet Ireland’s divorce rate is up 800% in the last 15 years. Divorce is not a typical legal ‘transaction’. It involves overcoming challenges and complicated family issues that can be made easier with professional help and guidance.

Muriel Walls, partner in Walls & Toomey, has specialised in family law for over 30 years and is a recognised expert in preparing individuals – and couples – for the end of their marriage.

“The single most important takeaway is to put a value on the ‘relational estate’.  A contentious separation or divorce takes up time, energy, and emotional space – focus on a resolution and how to get there.”

Watch the webinar recording for some additional insights and considerations for couples navigating a divorce.
