What Is Family Law?
Family law covers a broad range of issues that a modern family might have to address, such as relationship break up, making sure that children are properly cared for, and sorting out the fair distribution of property or family finances.
Due to the nature of family law cases, and the number of parties that can be involved, it is extremely important for a highly-skilled and experienced solicitor to be on your side.

Relationship Break Up
Whenever one household splits into two, disputes can arise. So, you should have a skilled solicitor on your side of those disputes.
Divorce and relationship break up can happen whether the parties are married, in a civil partnership, or cohabiting. But the issues are often the same: ensuring the separation takes place amicably, making suitable arrangements for any children, and managing the fair distribution of family property and finances. And, we can help with separation agreements. We can advise you on all these issues.
