We deal with a broad range of Family Legal matters including:

Deeds of trust and jointly owned property

If you are buying a house with your partner you should always seek legal advice as to the best method to formalize the situation and to record who is entitled to what share or interest in the property.

Prenuptial Agreements and Cohabitation Agreements

You can enter into a formal arrangement which will allow you both to manage any break up in the future, with the least possible unpleasantness. We can help you consider the details of how any unfortunate break down will be dealt with and to agree to those details with your partner or prospective spouse. We can help you formulate a plan which provides for how any relationship breakdown is handled. That way if things go wrong you follow your agreed way forward.

We advise on and prepare Pre-Nuptial Agreements (which are contracts at the start of the marriage regulating the provisions in the event of a relationship breakdown). You may also want advice on Cohabitation/Living Together Agreements (which are contracts at the start of the cohabitation regulating the provisions in the event of a relationship breakdown.

Grandparents and Stepparents Rights

Many grandparents take a full and active role in the grandchildren’s’ upbringing and care. After the breakdown of the parents’ relationship, some grandparents can find themselves pushed out, particularly if their own child is not the parent with whom the children reside. We can help grandparents pursue an application for an order that their grandchildren spend time with them.

Stepparents can now obtain Parental Responsibility for the stepchildren of the family. We can help to resolve this and obtain this important legal status. We can also help if the marriage should come to an end and step-parent wishes to maintain contact with their stepchild.

Parental Responsibility and Paternity

Parental responsibility is the legal term for the rights and duties a parent has in respect of their children. We can help with disputes regarding Parental responsibility and paternity.
