How we can help you

When a relationship breaks down, our expert family lawyers have the knowledge and experience to help our clients make the decisions that best fit their needs, and those of their family.

The key services that we provide to clients following a separation include:

Childcare arrangements

Agreeing on what’s best for any children that may be affected by a separation is crucial. The first priority for any parent following a relationship breakdown is to make sure that the arrangements for their children are the best that can be made in the new circumstances. This often includes thought to where the children will live and when they will see each parent.

Asset protection and financial matters

If you’ve had a cohabitation agreement created, or perhaps a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, we can review it with you to ensure that the separation agreement or divorce reflects what was originally set out.

If you’re separating and don’t already have one of these documents in place, we can discuss the situation with you and provide relevant advice that takes your needs into account.

We can advise you on all of these matters in a professional way through our comprehensive service. Taking legal advice early on can stop things becoming too strained before important decisions need to be made. It can also mitigate costs in the long run by enabling you to make informed choices and move things forward positively.
