Divorce Questions and Answers from Natalie Jenner – Divorce lawyer at Parslows

We have been living in Jersey for only two years and now want to divorce, can we do this here?

At least one spouse in the marriage needs to have been living in the island for one year before they can file for divorce but either party can file as long as they have lived in the island in the year before the divorce was filed

How to Cope with the Process of Divorce - Natalie Jenner, Divorce lawyer at Parslows

Don't use children in the argument you may have with your spouse. Remember that children are vulnerable and need stability at a time when their parents are divorcing. Try to avoid arguing and if it has to be, make sure it is away from the children.

Employment law tips to help Jersey Business owners with employment issues - Chris Austin, Employment Lawyer at Parslows

How do I investigate an allegation?

There should be no connection between the person conducting the investigation and the allegation, this ensures that the investigator(s) can stay impartial and examine the facts fairly and reasonably.

This may be difficult in a small business, as employees are likely know each other well and therefore may be connected to the incident. Hence, whoever carries out the investigation must do so with an open mind.

To do this in an objective, rational manner, talk to all the parties involved and gather written evidence. Be willing to look for evidence both supporting and opposing the employee.

Individuals involved should be asked not to discuss the allegation - or involve themselves in the procurement of evidence or verification of what the employee and other staff are saying.

What you uncover may not be what you expected, but keep an open mind. For example, it may be a family passing that has caused someone's performance to diminish.

At this stage it is important to note that the employee under investigation does not have a right to be accompanied.

Divorce Questions and Answers from Natalie Jenner – Divorce lawyer at Parslows

Is there something in the divorce law that says you have to be married for 3 years before you can divorce?

A divorce petition cannot generally be heard by the Jersey Court during the first three years of the marriage.

I am regularly asked questions about family law and divorce so I thought it would be helpful to share these tips with you on a weekly basis - please let me know if these are helpful - Natalie

Don't try and rush the divorce process. Your spouse may be still reeling from the news that you want to end the marriage. Consider slowing down and maybe wait until they are ready to move things forward. If you don't, it may end up in an expensive argument which could have been avoided.

How do I discipline someone without souring the atmosphere in the workplace?

The most important thing that you should ask yourself is: What happens if I don't act on the issue? Will this lead to further problems?

The issue is most likely to get worse; therefore it is best that the concern is dealt with professionally. Poor management of the situation may even lead to other employees questioning your ability in a position of authority.
