We understand that you may be going through a difficult time but when it comes to Family Law, you need a solicitor that you can trust.
What do family law solicitors do?
A family law solicitor can help you with many legal aspects including the handling legal issues such as divorce, separation, child custody and adoption as well as taking care of child custody arrangements, putting prenuptial agreements in place and even taking care of property arrangements.
How can our Family Law Solicitors help?
Before getting married or entering a civil relationship, you can protect your assets and finances by drawing up a prenuptial agreement. This is an agreement made by a couple before they marry concerning the ownership of their respective assets if the marriage or civil relationship should fail. For more details, see our Pre and Post Nuptial Agreements page.
When you are living together
If you are living with a partner and not married, you can also protect your assets and finances by creating a cohabitation agreement. Again, this agreement outlines what each party is entitled to if the relationship should fail. For more information, visit our Cohabitation Law page.

Child Arrangement Orders
This arrangement outlines, who the child can see, spent time with and have contact with. This arrangement is often resorted to when either party cannot decide or when foster parents are involved. The Court will always make their decision based on the best interests of the child or children involved. For more information, visit our Child Arrangement Orders page.
As a grandparent, you don't have the right to immediate access to your grandchildren. You need to write to the Courts and request a "Contact Order". In most cases, a "Contact Order" will be granted.
