Divorce Separation & Children Matters
Divorce and related issues can be a painful time emotionally, without considering the financial implications and the children. With our experienced and dedicated team of Family Solicitors, we can take the strain. Our solicitors have Advanced Law Society Family Law Accreditation meaning they are able to provide you with the very best advice.
If avoiding Court is something you would want to consider, we are able to offer mediation, with a trained Family Law Mediator as part of our team. With a member of our firm an accredited specialist member of the ‘Resolution’ group mediation and collaborative law is also an option available to you, to ensure you have every option to consider when going through a separation.
We are able to assist with a variety of aspects during your divorce, including agreeing on distribution of the matrimonial finances. We are able to assist if you are wanting general advice on how to negotiate a settlement with your former partner or give advice as to whether a pre-agreed settlement is fair. If you have been unable to agree on a settlement between yourselves we can assist in advising you as to the implications of any settlement proposals, drafting the relevant legal documentation and representing you in Court.
Matters relating to children can be difficult, whether it is to decide issues of contact or with regards to Local Authority intervention, with Law Society Children Law Accreditation; you know you are receiving a high level of knowledge, skills, experience and practice from our team.
With an accredited specialist in Children Law, our firm has the knowledge, experience and dedication to ensure you receive the best possible advice. We are able to represent the parent or the guardian in these proceedings, attend pre-proceedings meetings and advise you on the different Orders available to the Court to make and what they mean for you and your child.
After the cuts to Legal Aid these proceedings are one of the few areas of Law where funding is still available, we can help ensure you get the funding to support your case and guide you through each step of the way.
Our firm has a ‘Resolution’ domestic violence committee member and a SAFE domestic abuse advisor available for those that are suffering at the hands of abuse of a partner or family member. The law recognises domestic abuse can affect people of all ages; including young people under the age of 18. For those who are suffering and are in fear of suffering abuse our firm can guide you down the legal route of protecting yourself and loved ones with injunctions and enforcing injunctions.
Our firm also has a Domestic Abuse trainer; who trains social workers on issues of abuse and how to notice the signs and handle the situation with the delicacy it requires.
