Family Law

Unfortunately at least one in three marriages now end in divorce and it is important that you consult a solicitor as early as possible after your separation so that you can be advised of the legal position in your situation.

This can be advice on care of the children, the right to stay in your home and implications. In general each party is entitled to half of the matrimonial assets acquired during the period of the marriage but this can be subject to qualifications and each individual case is different.

Need to determine a monthly mortgage payment? The financial calculator makes it simple to calculate all your financial needs.

It is therefore very important that you consult your solicitor in order that the correct advice can be given to suit your own personal circumstances. We offer your first interview free of charge.

Advice for parents - first for family law

Once we have discussed your own position we would attempt to negotiate a settlement by agreement with your spouse's solicitor. Our emphasis is on negotiation and not conflict. Confrontation benefits neither party particularly when children are involved. Where necessary, however, we can raise court proceedings.

Our clients come from all walks of life. As well as acting for families we have served for generations, we are happy to act for new clients including those who have just moved to the area.
