Family breakdowns cover a huge variety of family situations not only divorce. It includes the separation of spouses/partners, the reaching of a financial agreement following the separation, the arrangements for children after a breakdown of a relationship, possible domestic violence and applying for a protective injunction for you and the family as well as the breakdown of a civil partnership and same sex marriages.
Family Law also assists those who are entering into new relationships by the agreeing and drafting of pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements.
Clive is very experienced in family law and helping their clients through what can be a very difficult time. As well as relying on his knowledge and experience he keeps fully up to date with Family Law to offer their clients the most sound and constructive advice.
We understand and appreciate that it can be a daunting prospect to speak to a Solicitor for the first time to discuss your family matter. Clive is aware of this when seeing his clients and understand the very powerful feelings that can be involved during this time.
Happily most family breakdowns do not result in an application being made to the Court but that step can and should be taken if necessary. It is usually possible to reach an amicable settlement and Clive encourages clients to do this whenever possible.
We understand that costs can be a concern and clients are provided with regular updates concerning the costs position. We are always happy to discuss payment and potential payments plans with our clients.
