Family Law & Children

Family law is an increasingly complex area and requires a demanding set of skills. An experienced and intelligent analysis of complex financial circumstances is needed, together with a sensitive and authoritative approach to guide clients and obtain the best possible outcomes through this difficult time. Given the nature of our clients, we understand the importance of preserving their confidentiality and exercising discretion at all times. Our team specialise in all family law matters and pride themselves on being legally knowledgeable, accessible and ready to fight your case. They take the time to understand what you want to achieve and work hard to achieve the best resolution for you and your family.

We have a reputation for working with clients to resolve a wide range of family law issues. Whilst we try to keep disputes out of court wherever possible, sometimes this is unavoidable, and we have experience of taking complex and difficult cases to the Court.

We offer all clients a range of fixed fee ‘divorce only’ packages as well as traditional hourly rates fee options and therefore able to suit all budgets and requirements.

Transparency on the issue of legal fees is guaranteed, with clear costs breakdowns provided from the outset and throughout the duration of your case.

We also deal complex issues surrounding children of divorcing and separating parties. When parents separate there are many important decisions that need to be made surrounding the care of children. In some cases, these can be agreed quickly, however disputes can often arise when parents disagree about various arrangements. That’s when its important to get legal advice to resolve problems as soon as possible.

Our family lawyers have experience in divorce and separation and will help you achieve an agreement to cover a range of issues. These include the custody of children, contact with parents and other family members and financial matters, such as child maintenance.

Using our experience, expertise and skill we work with clients to resolve disputes through mediation or negotiation, helping families find arrangements that best meet the needs of the children.

If an agreement cannot be reached, you may need a court to make the final decisions for you, this is known as Child Arrangements Orders. The court will always have the welfare of the child as its paramount consideration and it is a general principle that it is better for children to maintain a relationship with both parents. Our lawyers will guide you through the process to help you achieve the best possible outcome for you and your children.
