Family law and matrimonial
Whether you are embarking on or ending a marriage, civil partnership or cohabitation, it is a time when life-changing decisions for you and your family need to be made.
We are respected for our straight-forward and pragmatic advice and, by taking time to understand each client’s needs, provide realistic and tailored solutions.
At the outset of a relationship, we draft and advise on pre-nuptial, pre-civil partnership or cohabitation agreements to set out what you agree about your responsibilities and obligations towards each other.
If the relationship breaks down, we will guide you through the legal and financial issues, including maintenance, division of capital, pensions and business interests.
Where children are involved, we can help you with decisions about their care and also the financial arrangements for them.
We regard litigation through the courts as a last resort. Where possible, we endeavour to achieve a resolution through negotiation - as members of Resolution, our matrimonial team is committed to a constructive approach to resolving family matters and giving measured balanced legal support.
