Personal and Family Law Solicitors
Family law is a specific branch of law focusing on any legal topics involving marriage and children. Common reasons for seeking the advice of a family law solicitor include divorce or annulment, child custody and visitation rights, child support payments, and alimony. Family law is also the area of law that deals with children, including adoption, guardianship and domestic violence.
Why Do I Need a Family Lawyer?
Separation: If you’re looking to legally separate from your partner or you are seeking a divorce or annulment, a family lawyer can provide you with the advice you need to ensure you are prepared practically, financially and emotionally for the impact of a relationship breakdown.
Child custody: The process of arranging separate parenting can be difficult for both parents, but even more so for children. Family lawyers can offer advice and support during a separation to ensure your family can build a new routine as quickly as possible.
Child Maintenance and Alimony: Whether you’ve separated or divorced, it is important to arrange maintenance payments as soon as possible. Your family lawyer will ensure you know your rights before you pursue your claim.
Domestic Violence: In domestic violence cases, experienced family lawyers can ensure that you are aware of your rights as the victim. Your solicitor can also provide you with the practical details you require to take control of your situation.
