What Can We Help With?
Our family lawyers can help in a range of situations, including:
- Living together – there’s no such thing as a “common law marriage”. If you’re unmarried and living together or planning to do so, we can draft a cohabitation agreement to protect you if your relationship breaks down.
- Prenuptial agreements – if you’re planning to get married but want to agree beforehand how your property and financial assets would be split if you were to divorce.
- New relationships – we can help you protect your children’s inheritance.
- Divorce and civil partnership dissolution – we’ll guide you through the legal process, while protecting your interests to achieve a fair financial settlement.
- Separation – if you’re separated but aren’t ready or don’t want to divorce, we can help draft a separation agreement.
- Domestic abuse – we can help to protect you and your family from an abusive former partner.
- Adoption or surrogacy – we’ll help you negotiate the legal process of securing legal parenthood, as well as other legal issues around adoption and surrogacy.
- Child arrangements following divorce – we can negotiate arrangements such as the time children spend with each parent, where they go to school and what child maintenance should be paid. We can also assist step-parents and grandparents to secure contact with a child.
- Child abduction or relocation – if your former partner has taken your child, we could help you get them back. If you or your former partner wants to move to another country with your children, we can assist.
Many of these issues can be extra complicated for people in later life - read about how our Planning For Later Life Relationships Package can help if you're an older person starting a new relationship
