Family Law

The breakdown of a relationship is often a stressful time for all involved.

We can assist you with:

  • Divorce: Advising you as to the appropriate grounds for divorce and obtaining a decree, so as to dissolve your marriage. If the correct ground is chosen, this can often result in a quick and amicable solution, therefore being in the best interest of all parties.
  • Financial Provision Arising Out Of Divorce: It is important that upon separation all “Matrimonial Property” is identified and fairly divided. Such assets will often include: the matrimonial home and any other property; business interests, stocks and shares, money in bank accounts, pensions and insurance policies. We will, where possible, attempt to negotiate an amicable agreement for you which can be drawn up into a legally binding document referred to as a “Separation Agreement”. This will generally save you time, expense and stress. However, if for whatever reason this cannot be achieved, then we will make an appropriate application to the Court on your behalf so as to obtain a satisfactory financial settlement for you.
  • Children: If separating parents cannot agree where their children are going to live, or contact arrangements, then we can advise on the best way to deal with such issues. Often a negotiated agreement is better all round, but if a court application has to be made, then we can deal with this for you and obtain a “Residence Order” or a “Contact Order”.
  • Cohabitants: An increasing trend is for couples not to be married and in such situations, if there is a relationship breakdown, finances and children issues still have to be resolved. The Law concerning cohabitants is somewhat different to those of married couples separating and we are happy to advise you in relation to this often complex area of law.
