| For You and Your Family
Family problems relating to Divorce or Separation from your partner can be very stressful. However, with the right information and professional advice, the breakdown of your relationship need not be so difficult.
Our Family Lawyers do not only give advice when things go wrong. At the beginning of a relationship it is sometimes useful to decide how a property you are buying together will be held. We have experience in drawing up Co-habitation Agreements and Pre-nuptial Agreements which are becoming more popular and can assist in resolving difficulties that arise later. In this area we provide sympathetic and realistic advice on both court procedures and your rights in matters such as:
- Property Disputes – Who will keep the family home and contents? What will happen to the family business? Our shares? My inheritance? The Farm? What will I live on? Can I get a share of my spouses’ pension? How do I protect the assets from dissipation or removal? Who will pay the bills?
- Contact and Residence for Children – How often can I see the children? Who will they live with? How can I have a say in their upbringing? What is parental responsibility and how do I get it? Can I stop the children from being forced to do something that I don’t approve of?
- Abduction – How can I stop the children from being taken away? How can I get them back?
- Domestic Violence – What can I do to protect myself from physical or mental abuse? How can I protect the children?
