With a wealth of experience, our Family Law team can offer advice in the following areas:
Our divorce lawyers can guide you through all of the issues involved in the end of your relationship, including starting and responding to divorce proceedings, as well as making financial arrangements and arrangements for children.
We also have strong experience with civil partnership dissolution, so can provide expert advice and support to help you deal with the end of a civil partnership.
Most issues involved in divorce and civil partnership dissolution can be dealt with amicably, avoiding the need for court action and saving you time, money and stress.
Separation agreements can be very useful if you are considering a trial separation or need to put in place interim arrangements while sorting out the details of your divorce or civil partnership dissolution.
A separation agreement is a legally binding agreement that allows you to decide where each of you will live, how your finances will be dealt with in the short term and any immediate arrangements that need to be made for your children.
With many people now getting married later in life or after a previous marriage, it is increasingly common for couples from all walks of life to want a pre-nuptial agreement.
This can be especially useful if there is a big difference in assets or income between the two parties or where there are children from a previous relationship whose inheritance who want to protect.
We can advise you on what to consider in a prenup, help you to negotiate the details with your partner in a positive way and ensure the resulting document meets the legal standard needed for it to be considered by a judge if you ever need to rely on your prenup.
If you are planning to live with your partner without getting married, it is important to realise that you have no automatic legal right to each other’s property, savings, pension or other assets in the event your relationship ends.
A cohabitation agreement allows you to set out exactly what will happen if you ever separate, including how your finances will be divided, what will happen to your shared home and where any children you have will live.
A cohabitation agreement is a legally binding document that can provide peace of mind that you and your loved ones will not lose out if your relationship ends.
