Family Law

We understand that families are as individual as the people in them. We’re here to provide advice that fits your needs and those of your loved ones.

From starting out in relationships by creating living together agreements, drafting pre and postnuptial agreements, to guiding you on child care arrangements, separation and divorce, we’ll help find the best outcome for you.

We understand that when things go wrong it can be distressing, so it’s important to get expert advice at an early stage. We’re here to provide you with clear, practical and reliable counsel.

Our experts will give advice specific to your circumstances and your unique family make up. We’ll guide you carefully through what can be difficult financial decisions, such as what to do about the family home or other property in the event of a divorce or separation.

We understand the importance of delivering the right legal advice for you and your family to achieve the best possible outcome for everyone involved.

We’re expert in the following areas of family law:

Separation and divorce

We’ll provide you with bespoke advice tailored to your needs, helping you navigate potentially difficult decisions such as childcare arrangements and financial provision, as well as divorce and divorce litigation.

Children

The first priority for any parent when their relationship breaks down is to make sure the arrangements for their children are the best that can be made in the new circumstances.

Deciding where the children will live and when they will see each parent after a separation is understandably an emotional time. It’s vital that decisions are made in the best interests of the child and getting it right is our main priority. We work tirelessly to achieve the best outcome for you and your family.

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements

Prenuptial agreements have become increasingly common in Scotland in recent years. Our family law solicitors have a wealth of expertise in relation to these contracts, which can form a crucial part of asset protection, should the need arise in the future.

Cohabitation and living together agreements

For people getting ready to live together or to buy their first home as a couple, we have considerable experience in drafting living together agreements for unmarried couples in Scotland and internationally. Should the relationship end, it may be possible for claims to be made. Where a spouse dies intestate, having an agreement in place can make a considerable difference during what will naturally be an emotional time.
