Family Law and Childcare

We appreciate that relationship breakdown can be one of the most traumatic experiences to cope with. Our dedicated team of experts in family law will guide you through the process to try and achieve the best outcome for you.

Our team of family experts are specialised in providing advice in relation to all aspects of relationship breakdown, including:

  • Divorce/separation/nullity
  • Unmarried couples
  • Breakdown of same sex relationships
  • Dissolution of Civil Partnerships
  • Separation Agreements
  • Post Nuptial Agreements
  • Children matters, including disputes about living arrangements and contact
  • Domestic violence and injunctions
  • Applications involving removal of children from the jurisdiction

At our first meeting we will provide estimates of costs and timescales for resolution of issues. We will keep you informed throughout the process.

Many couples now wish to regulate their arrangements from the outset to limit the possibility of dispute in the unfortunate event that their relationship breaks down subsequently. We are experienced in dealing with Pre-Nuptial Agreements and Cohabitation Agreements.

 

Childcare

Our expert Childcare team have a wealth of experience in matters where Social Services become involved with families and can offer specialist advice and assistance in the following situations:

  • Social Services have become involved with your family
  • Your child’s name is entered on the Child Protection Register
  • Your child is placed in foster care.
  • Social Services are issuing Court Proceedings in relation to your child seeking Care or Supervision Orders
  • Adoption

We are also regularly instructed by wider family members and assist with applications for Contact, Residence and Special Guardianship Orders. We also advise prospective adopters and parents in relation to Placement and Adoption Proceedings.

We will discuss the funding of your case at your first meeting and in most cases Legal Aid will be available.
