We provide extensive advice on cases involving children and can assist in contact and residence cases ensuring that matters are resolved in a productive way that is in the best interests of the child.

We also advise if children are the subjects of local authority care proceedings.

Pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements
It is becoming more common for couples to enter into an agreement about what happens should their relationship break down.

Recent test cases have bolstered the legal status of pre-marital agreements in the UK. We can talk you through your options and help you decide whether an agreement is suitable for you.

Pre-marital agreements can be particularly useful if:

You are a couple marrying for the first time and wish to agree to keep the assets owned prior to the marriage as separate
You have already been through a divorce and want to avoid possible complications and legal costs in the future
You have business assets you wish to protect
You want to preserve assets for your children

We have experience of putting together agreements in all of these situations. Contact us and we will give you clear advice on how to protect your assets.

Injunctions, non-molestation orders and cohabitation disputes
If you are thinking of setting up home with your partner then you need to plan ahead. It is important to define what is to happen if you split up from your partner. We will assist in drawing up a cohabitation agreement.

If you have not thought ahead and you have a problem we are here to help in reaching a settlement. We deal with simple disagreements to cases that require injunctions or a non-molestation order.

Finances and property
In divorce disputes or civil partnerships our experience ranges from those with limited resources to those involving complex issues and assets.

If you’re going through a divorce or separation, deciding how to divide your property, money and other assets can be one of the most difficult decisions.

We have experience in all kinds of money and property disputes, including:

Matrimonial assets.
Disputes involving business assets
Disputes involving unmarried couples
Disputes involving same sex couples

If your divorce goes through the courts, a judge will make a decision on how to divide your assets. If necessary we can assist you with this, however with the assistance of mediation an agreement can be reached without it being necessary to attend court
