Family Law Solicitors

There are many different ways to resolve financial issues and decide your children’s future.  If you want to avoid court, our family law solicitors help individuals find other ways to reach a negotiated settlement such as through collaborative law, mediation or arbitration.

 

If court is unavoidable we will represent you effectively so as to achieve the right outcome for you, whether relating to financial claims, children’s arrangements or domestic violence.

 

Our team of specialist family solicitors are experienced in dealing with complex cases. So whether you need to resolve issues relating to ownership of the matrimonial home or complex assets or trusts, we are able to help.

 

Our family lawyers are based in Tunbridge Wells and Kings Hill, Kent and in Cannon Street London.  As many of our clients are from Kent, Sussex or Surrey, we often meet with them at home or their place of work.  For clients based abroad, we regularly meet using SKYPE or video conferencing.

 

It is often prudent to make arrangements at the start of 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.

 

Many of our clients have inherited wealth, are business or landowners or have senior jobs in central London; this breadth of experience has made us adept at helping people with complex financial affairs.

 

We also have numerous international clients. Our extensive experience of cross-border tax and succession planning means we can tap into our network of family lawyers across the world if needed.

 

Our team appreciates that separations can be distressing. We treat you with sensitivity and explain your options and their consequences clearly and carefully. We can also meet you outside normal business hours and away from our offices.

 

All our family solicitors belong to Resolution, an organisation committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes.
