Family Law, Child Law and Relationship Matters
We advise separating couples both on practical and legal aspects of their situation, either as spouses, civil partners or co-habitees, and regarding both their children and their finances.
We give guidance on financial separation, deeds of agreement, the fairness of a proposal and assist the parties to reach an amicable conclusion. We are committed to the Resolution Code of Practice, and offer a Collaborative Law process to solve the couple’s differences.
Where necessary, we conduct court proceedings in line with the Code of Practice, both in planned proceedings and in emergency applications. We deal with divorce, separation, and arrangements for children.
Associated considerations are the need for financial advice on the rearrangements that separation bring. Wills need to be reconsidered, there will be tax implications and insurance should be considered before matters are finalised. Bankruptcy may affect the “innocent” party in a way that may be quite unexpected and be seen as very unfair.
And for future planning, we advise on pre-nuptial agreements. For advice on these matters and other aspects of Family Law, please contact our Family Law department.
