Divorce, Dissolution of Civil Partnerships and Separation
We work with sensitivity, understanding and empathy to help you navigate both the emotional and practical issues you are likely to encounter when a relationship breaks down.
Nancy considers carefully when to take action whilst seeking to minimise conflict so that the process is one where all family members can move forward as constructively as possible with their lives. Often this can involve an international dimension (a so-called jurisdiction race).
Sorting out finances can be a daunting part of separation and divorce. Protecting your financial position is paramount and we work closely with our clients to address this from the outset. Financial issues differ from family to family – we will discuss options and offer clear and objective advice.
A step-by-step process helps in identifying where the focus is to be set in the short, medium and long term and how to receive any practical support, thus ensuring a fair and desirable financial settlement.
Relationship Agreements vary from Pre-Nuptial and Post-Nuptial agreements, Pre-Civil Partnership and Post-civil Partnership agreements or Cohabitation agreements.
These may help to provide clarity for the future and help avoid litigation in the event of a breakdown in the relationship. We provide expert advice on all aspects of relationship agreements, including clarifying the law in light of misconceived concepts in the public domain; exploring your goals and vision for the future; drafting and negotiating agreements. We handle any circumstance swiftly, even where international issues arise.
We are committed to encouraging parents to put their children’s needs first. Our goal is a future where children continue to have a loving and meaningful relationship with both their parents and other family members. Arrangements that are in the children’s best interests are achieved through mediation, negotiations or by issuing court proceedings where necessary.
We offer robust advice regarding financial provision for children. We will also go even further when urgent matters arise. This may include the wish of a parent to relocate with the child/ren to another country or disputes regarding imminent holidays and incidents overseas.
