We advise clients on the most cost effective and beneficial means of obtaining a divorce having regard to any dependent children, the family home and any other assets held by either party. Sorting out arrangements for children can be very difficult especially when you are going through a separation or divorce. However, it is very important that this sensitive issue is dealt with in a pragmatic and thoughtful way, given that the welfare of the children is the foremost consideration in the process. Our solicitors have an in-depth knowledge of the current legislation enabling us to provide the best advice which will deliver the best outcome to the family.
We advise clients on the dissolution of civil partnerships and the range of concerns that can arise through relationship breakdown. This can include financial settlements and issues regarding any children of the partnership.
Domestic violence injunctions
This includes non-molestation orders, safety orders, protection orders. We deal with each situation in a very sensitive and respectful manner taking into account the traumatic incident which our clients have experienced.
Guardianship, custody and access of children
For children born outside of marriage, only the mother is automatically recognised as the child’s guardian. Even if the father’s name is on the child’s birth certificate, this does not provide him with any guardianship rights in respect to his child. We can provide advice and assistance to individuals who are experiencing difficulties in this area and who are seeking to establish their rights in relation to the child.
