Whilst in an ideal world, we would all have positive family relationships, family ties are often complicated and can sometimes break down. Family solicitors can help with a wide variety of legal matters and in our latest post, we discuss the areas that a family law solicitor can help with.
If a relationship breaks down, one of the most concerning factors for parents is how it will affect their children.
In some cases, parents are able to come to an amicable arrangement regarding custody between themselves. In many cases, it is advised that the parents work this out between themselves as they are already aware of the other’s schedule and should know best what works for their children.
However, where an amicable decision cannot be reached a family law solicitor advice ou on applying for a residence order, a contact order or a prohibited steps order.
If you have decided to take the final step in ending your marriage and file for divorce, a family law solicitor can help you navigate the often lengthy process and understand the complexities that surround it.
A collaborative divorce is often cheaper than cheaper than going through court as it avoids a multitude of steps and court fees.
During a collaborative divorce, you and your partner will set the agenda for each meeting you have and lead negotiations with the help of your family solicitor. Your appointed solicitor will represent your legal rights and step if attempts to reach an agreement fail.
If you and your partner live together but are not married, you may not automatically be entitled to your share of the assets. A family law solicitor can help you draw up a cohabitation agreement so that should your relationship break down, you will be entitled to your fair share of jointly funded assets.
