Dealing with the legal aspects of divorce and its financial implications requires expertise, experience and sensitivity. Find out how our family law experts can help you resolve your family problems equitably and appropriately.
Family Law & Divorce
The breakdown of human relationships causes all sorts of difficulties, and some of these can only be resolved by legal means. Our clients’ best interests, and particularly those of their children, are always paramount in our thoughts. Early settlement by skilled negotiation is desirable, and we view litigation as a last resort. However, we are not slow in taking court proceedings where necessary.
Our Family Law services include:
- Divorce and separation
- Financial and property aspects: separation frequently requires advice on financial needs and obligations, such as income, ownership of the matrimonial home, and distribution of joint assets
- Arrangements concerning the children
- Urgent applications to the courts, e.g. for a restraining order for unreasonable behaviour, such as violence and aggression, or preventing the disposal of assets
- Mediation services in appropriate cases
Several of our experienced family law specialists have been appointed to the Law Society Family Law Panel in recognition of their expertise in this difficult area.
