What Family Law Legal services do we provide?
Relationship breakdowns can be extremely stressful and upsetting. On top of that, the legal process of divorce, or, in the case of civil partnerships, dissolution, can be confusing.
Our specialist team of family and divorce solicitors and lawyers in Croydon are here to provide you with clear, objective and easy to understand advice.
We are members of Resolution: First for Family Law and our family lawyers are committed to dealing with complicated family situations in an amicable manner wherever possible. Through dialogue with your ex-partner, maintaining a civil relationship, you can make things easier for all parties concerned going forward. This is especially important when children are involved. To this end, we will often recommend mediation.
When an amicable resolution is not possible, and a Court hearing is necessary, we have the experience and expertise to guide you through the process. We can represent you in Court to ensure the best possible outcome is achieved for you.
If you feel that your relationship may have broken down, please contact us today to discuss your options further. Our family lawyers are here to help you in this time of uncertainty.
Couples who are living together outside of marriage do not, contrary to what many believe, have the same rights as a couple who are married.
Increasingly, people are choosing to live together outside of marriage, but, more often than not, are not taking adequate precautions to safeguard themselves in the event of relationship breakdown or death. For example, in the unfortunate event of one partner passing, the other may not be able to stay in the joint home. They might not be able to receive the deceaseds pension, or even look after the children.
A cohabitation agreement will help you by clearly documenting which of you owns what, and what you are entitled to. It is of particular importance if when buying a property together, or where children are concerned.
So, if you are planning on living together, or you already do and do not have a cohabitation agreement, it is in you & your partners’ best interests to speak to our Family Lawyers and rectify this situation immediately, to safeguard you both.
If you find yourself in the unfortunate position whereby your partnership has already broken down, or your partner passed, and no agreement was in place, do not despair. Call to make an appointment with a solicitor who can advise you on your legal rights.
