Areas of family law advice

We offer family legal advice on the full spectrum of issues that you and you relatives may face. These include:

Divorce/ civil partnership dissolution

The breakdown of a marriage or civil partnership can be extremely stressful and upsetting for all those involved. Our specialists will deal with your case with the utmost sensitivity, responding to your needs and helping you to navigate the process of legal separation. Our lawyers are here to negotiate for a fair settlement on your behalf and to make sure that you fully understand your rights and know your options. To keep stress and expense to a minimum for you and your family, we’ll seek to avoid litigation wherever possible and instead encourage alternatives such as mediation.

Children

A whole range of legal issues can affect children, from determining child arrangements or parental responsibility to negotiating the outcome of a divorce or completing the process of adoption. We know that the future of children and their families can hang in the balance in cases like these and are standing by to offer expert, reliable legal advice that always puts the welfare and needs of children first.

Pre and post-nuptial agreements

In case the worst should happen and your relationship with your partner comes to an end, it’s wise to have an agreement in place to make legal separation easier. Pre and post-nuptial agreements can protect your property and finances in case of divorce or civil partnership dissolution. These agreements outline who should get what. Our lawyers can offer advice on how to go about creating these documents to make sure they are fair and reflect your wishes.

Cohabitation agreements

People often assume that if they have been living with their partner for a long time, they are ‘common law’ wives and husbands. In reality, there is no such legal status here in the UK. This means that if you split up, you won’t have the legal protections in place that you could expect if you were married or in a civil partnership. To minimise any uncertainty and to make the process of separation easier if you and your partner end your relationship, you could draw up a cohabitation agreement. These agreements set out what will happen to your finances and assets if you separate. They can also cover child arrangements. Our specialists are standing by to help you create a cohabitation agreement.
