The end of a relationship can lead to some of the most upsetting times in anyone’s life and can have an impact on other members of the family.

What our clients say

I was very pleased with the courtesy of the ladies who attended to my requests and particularly so at the time when I had my accident – they were extremely helpful.

Paul James' support has been invaluable in effectively progressing key contractual requirements. His knowledge and expertise in contract and procurement matters is exceptional. Would not hesitate to engage Paul's services again in future should the requirement and opportunity arise.” (dated March 2017).

The reason I used Redkite is that most solicitors don’t have the area of expertise that I required.

Redkite have provided assistance through several particularly difficult issues. Their advice has been professional, thorough and specifically tailoured to the needs of our business. The staff are approachable, knowledgeable and realistic in the advice they provide.

Redkite were recommended to me and I would do the same, fantastic service.

I have to say that everyone I have come into contact with from the receptionists to the solicitors have always been excellent. The advice I have been given formally and informally has always been clear and concise which is always a weight off your mind when you are dealing with the affairs of your loved ones.

Legal Services Commission Quality Mark

We have a quality mark from the Legal Services Commission and our professionals will notify you, from the outset, whether you have successfully qualified for Legal Aid or other subsidising alternatives. We additionally provide various fixed charge services.

Divorce and Separation

You could be entitled to recover some or all of your former partner’s expenses, and we will do so on your behalf if it’s appropriate. We provide “fixed fee” divorce services to provide you certainty over prices.

It’s physically and emotionally challenging to go through a divorce. It is our obligation, as your solicitors, to achieve the most desirable outcome to help you get the process moving as efficiently as possible. Our specialists have years of experience in the management of all divorce cases, including:

  • Divorce proceedings
  • Judicial Separation
  • High net worth advice
  • Complex splits

Financial Issues

We are experienced in negotiating all manner of settlements, from ‘clean break’ agreements – where the financial commitments of those involved to each other are brought to an end, to high-value cases sometimes involving estates, massive pension schemes and businesses.

This is often preferred to obtaining an agreement imposed against you by a judge, that neither side will be pleased with.

Our family law expertise comes from specialists across the firm and covers:

  • Pension splitting
  • Asset distribution
  • Business ownership & director issues
  • Equity splitting
  • Child maintenance
  • Tax advice


Adoption is meant to be an enjoyable process. Far too often, however, there are problems and legislative difficulties. Our specialised team of family law solicitors in Swansea will help make sure that your new family gets off to the best start possible. We will educate you on the process of adoption from beginning to end and support you in making the right choices for you and your children.

  • Special Guardianship advice

Disputes Relating to Children

It is best for parents to find a compromise and we actively encourage this and would even propose alternative approaches to dispute resolution such as arbitration.

We will handle all aspects of the children’s law, including:

  • Residence
  • Contact
  • Parental responsibility
  • Injunctions
  • Grandparent applications
  • Care proceedings
  • Fostering
  • Child abduction

Civil Partnership Dissolution

In this very specific legal field, we have experts who will negotiate, with empathy and integrity, every component of your civil partnership breakup. It’s a relatively new area of the law, but we are already gaining a reputation as experts in the field.

We can advise civil partners on:

  • Financial arrangements and court applications on dissolution
  • Pension and asset splitting
  • Children issues such as contact
  • Civil Partnership Agreements
  • Civil Partner Wills

Domestic Abuse and Injunctions

In all these cases, our team is qualified and has the necessary skillset to easily assess the requirements and to take the appropriate action without delay.

They can also assist you in accessing support services such as Women’s Aid and other professional services.

Here’s how we can help:

  • Taking out and enforcing injunctions
  • Occupation Orders
  • Non-molestation Orders
  • Defending injunctions
  • Contact issues arising after an injunction

Social Services Involvement with Families

Depending on the context of the case, the court has the power to render a variety of orders. Occasionally, local authorities actively pursue a care order, to divide the child’s custody.

Our committed team will use its skills and abilities to guide and consult you through this difficult and delicate process, liaising with you and your family at all times.

Our family law specialists can help with:

  • Court representation over Care Proceedings
  • Applications to discharge Care Orders
  • Applications for contact with children in care

Cohabitation Agreements

If you need professional guidance and support on legal issues pertaining to cohabitation, the Redkite Family Law Team can make a difference. Increasingly more people are choosing to cohabit rather than engage in a formal legal relationship. Many are unsure of the rights and commitments that cohabitation comes with, until a legal issue occurs.

Irrespective of whether; you are about to move in with a partner, have been living together for some time, or your relationship breaks down, our team of family law experts will help you.

Pre-nuptial Agreements

Nobody likes to believe that their marriage will fail before it has even barely started, but it is always wise to prepare for every potential outcome. Most people believe that prenuptial agreements are only for reality stars or very wealthy people, but there are many real advantages of entering into such an arrangement that it makes sense for every couple to do so.

It’s difficult enough to end a relationship without the anxiety and frustration of wondering where you will live, your financial stability and what’s going to happen to any children you have. A pre-nuptial agreement reduces any uncertainty and allows you to comfortably continue with your marriage

Collaborative Law

The collaborative agreement is a legal arrangement in which spouses, who have broken up or ended their marriage/civil union, can negotiate with their legal counsel to prevent the unpredictable outcome of the Court’s attempts to reach a settlement that meets the specific needs of the parties involved and their children.
