Family Law

The breakdown of a relationship can be one of the most traumatic periods of anyone’s life, as can the implications on the rest of the family. Naturally, you will be concerned about how the separation will affect your finances, which property arrangements will have to be made and how the break-up will impact upon any children you have.

During this difficult time, a helping hand from a specialist family solicitor who you can trust to protect your interests is vital to ensure a fair outcome for everyone involved.

At Redkite Solicitors, we know how emotionally and financially challenging relationship breakdown can be. When you instruct one of our dedicated family law solicitors, we will make it our priority to minimise the stress involved and resolve matters as quickly and fairly as possible.

Family Law FAQ

What is Alternative Dispute Resolution?

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is a term used to describe certain methods of resolving disputes to try to avoid court proceedings. This process includes negotiation, mediation, collaborative law and arbitration.

If you and your partner are struggling to reach decisions on vital matters such as children, money and property, using a method of ADR may be a good way to resolve matters peacefully, allowing you to secure a mutually beneficial outcome without the cost and delay of involving the court.

If ADR is unsuccessful, rest assured that our expert family solicitors will be at hand to provide strategic legal advice, empathetic support and robust representation through court proceedings to secure a fair settlement for you and your children.

What is a Cohabitation Agreement?

If you and your partner have made the decision to move in together, you may not have considered your legal rights as cohabitants.  Should the relationship subsequently break down, however, a cohabitation agreement could save you from being left with nothing.

Unfortunately, too many couples believe they are protected by what’s often referred to as ‘common law marriage’, a term that assumes that unmarried couples hold the same rights as married couples if they have lived together for a certain period of time. Sadly, this is not the case, so making provisions at an early stage will allow you to protect your interests regardless of what the future holds.

Our family law solicitors can help you to draft the cohabitation agreements, as well as provide tailored advice about what should be included. We know that this can often be a difficult conversation for a couple to have, which is why we will always allow you the time to reach your own decisions while actively making suggestions that we feel protect your best interests.
