Family Law Solicitors

For most families, the sudden arrival of Coronavirus has put them under immense pressure whether that be on their finances, relationships or exacerbating existing disputes.  

 

While our lawyers are all following Government advice and working from home, we continue to support our clients through email and a variety of messaging and video conferencing services. These can take place outside of office hours, at a time to suit you. We understand how distressing a time this can be and will treat you with sensitivity and explain your options clearly and carefully.

 

Our investment over the years in paperless technology means all files can be accessed securely online and there is no reason why any existing divorce proceedings or disputes should not continue to be progressed and resolved. Similarly, the Family Courts have responded swiftly to the situation. Judges have moved out of their court rooms and many hearings will, or now are, taking place remotely, using telephone and video conferencing facilities.

 

There are many different ways to resolve the matrimonial issues you may be facing.  Our family law solicitors are adept in helping individuals find alternative ways to reach a negotiated settlement such as through collaborative law, mediation or arbitration without having to go to Court. All our family solicitors belong to Resolution, an organisation committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes.

 

If court is unavoidable we will represent you effectively so as to achieve the right outcome for you. Our team frequently deals with complex cases, so whether you need to resolve issues relating to ownership of the matrimonial home, arrangements for children, cross-border complexities or high value assets or trusts, we are able to help.

 

Pre and post nuptial agreements

 

If you are committing to a long-term relationship, it is often prudent to put arrangements in place early on in your relationship. Prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements are used by many to protect their interests. English courts have confirmed the importance of nuptial agreements and will usually follow them unless the terms are unfair or don’t meet the needs of one party or children of the family.

 

We recommend that couples living together sign a cohabitation agreement, as they do not have the same legal protection as married couples or those in civil partnerships.
