Family Matters

  • Contested divorce
  • Fixed fee divorce
  • Fairly splitting property and assets
  • Financial arrangements
  • Domestic abuse
  • Child contact arrangements
This is a legally binding agreement entered into by the cohabitants, setting out their intentions in relation to the property and other assets they own either jointly or individually and what should happen if the relationship breaks down.  It is essential to obtain legal advice before preparing an agreement.

How long does a divorce take?

A divorce can take between 6-8 months if not disputed, from issuing the petition to the Decree Absolute. If the divorce or finances are disputed, then this timescale can be longer depending on when the issues are resolved.

What happens if we can’t agree who the children should live with?

The focus is always on what is in the best interests for the children. If this can’t be agreed, the court can decide but will encourage mediation in the first instance.

What are my rights to see the children?

Contact rights are normally the right of the children, not the parent. Provided that there is not a risk of harm to the children, contact will be ordered by the Court. It is best to negotiate contact arrangements by direct discussions or by mediation.

Do I have a legal right to see my grandchild?

A grandparent does not have an automatic legal right to see a grandchild, however, the Courts generally recognise that it is in the best interests of the grandchild to have contact with both sets of grandparents. In all cases involving children, the Courts will always judge the interests of the child to be the priority.
