Family and Relationships
We understand that any personal relationship breakdown can be distressing, and equally so the impact it may have upon any children. The emotional consequences can be wide-ranging, to move from fear to hope or from worry to relief, may take time.
You will have lots of questions; about children, finances, property or pensions upon breakdown of a marriage; or issues concerning trusts of land or property and personal possessions if living together – overlaid by concerns relating to the time and cost of finding the answers to those questions.
Suggesting solutions that meet your specific circumstances is a key part of our service to you, as well as to deliver tailored realistic and practical legal advice – we are here when you need us.
We will ask you to work with us to gather, then evaluate, essential information that we can use to design a range of solutions – for you to make an informed decision to help us to negotiate a hopefully successful outcome on your behalf.
We feel that going to court should be a last resort, but we will tell you when it may be more cost and time effective to seek some judicial case management.
We also specialise in drafting nuptial agreements, whether pre-marriage, post marriage or upon separation, that will help to regulate your future financial affairs in the unfortunate event the relationship does not continue.
The Family Team specialise in family law, but to ensure that you have the very best advice, we will call upon the expertise within the firm as necessary to consult, for example, on the wider issues relating to pensions, businesses, tax and trust matters.
