Divorce and Family Law
We can help you deal with any of the following:
- Pre-nuptial & post-nuptial agreements
- Cohabitation agreements
- Separation agreements
- Arrangements for your children
- Financial settlements on divorce and separation
- Property issues if not married
- Property disputes
We approach issues and disputes arising from relationship breakdown sensitively and objectively. Our prime objective is to ensure you understand your case, to deal with cases efficiently, to reduce stress and keep costs down.
We can advise on the arrangements for your children to live with and spend time with both their parents. We can also advise on taking children out of the country and other issues which may affect them such as choice of school.
We can advise on pre-nuptial agreements before getting married, or cohabitation agreements before living together.
We can advise on grounds for divorce and dissolution of a civil partnership.
We can advise on separation and what is required for a separation agreement.
We can advise on finances if you divorce or separate. We help you obtain financial disclosure and to understand financial issues so you are able to make rational decisions. We give advice on what will be a fair outcome. We conduct robust negotiations to achieve settlement wherever possible without going to court.
If court proceedings are necessary we will represent you until the case is determined by agreement or a court order, and ensure that the terms of a court order are implemented.
