About our family law solicitors in Chester

About our family law solicitors in Chester

  • Divorce law

    Whether you’re looking to divorce your partner, or you’re responding to a divorce application made by your spouse, you’ll be looking for expert help and support.

    The divorce process can be difficult to navigate, and for many, it can instil a sense of anxiety and confusion; which is why we take great care to outline the emotional, practical and legal challenges that lie ahead whilst providing practical next steps so that you can move forward to achieve the outcome you need.

    We can provide guidance on completing the divorce application, through to negotiating financial settlements and child custody (child arrangement orders).

    Our expert team is based in offices located on in Regus House on Herons Way (CH4) so we’re well placed to help you if you’re looking for divorce solicitors Chester.

  • Starting a divorce application

    A divorce application marks the start of your divorce process. You can apply for a divorce by yourself (sole applicant) or make a joint application with your ex-spouse (joint applicants). Getting this early part right is important as it can help to save you time and money; it can also help to make the process more amicable. Our divorce lawyers can support you in completing and submitting the divorce application to prevent delays.

  • Responding to a divorce application

    If you’ve been served with a divorce application and named as the respondent, it’s sometimes unclear as to how you should respond; you’ll be presented with a lot of legal wording and expressions that do more to create frustration than they do to provide clarity. Our Chester divorce lawyers can help you to respond to a divorce application while preparing you to get the best possible outcome for you, and for your family.

  • Arrangements for children and child custody

    One of the most difficult steps in a separation or divorce is in working through the arrangements for your children (formerly known as child custody). While this is a challenging process, it is in the best interests of your children to reach a civil agreement with your ex-partner. To make sure you get the best result for you and your children, it often helps to have a child law specialist on-hand to provide you with guidance on what a fair and workable arrangement might look like. Our Chester child solicitors have extensive experience in child arrangement cases and have seen a variety of solutions to suit every situation, no matter how niche. Our goal is to get the best outcome for your children and to help you to maintain a positive relationship with your ex-partner wherever possible.

  • Financial settlements in divorce

    Like every relationship, every couple’s finances will be unique to them. Trying to separate years of financial ties is often challenging, and there are usually tough financial issues that need to be resolved. Financial Settlements (commonly known as Divorce settlements) can cover everything from the family home, and even assets you owned before you got married to pensions, and investments; so getting expert financial and legal help is important if you’re looking to protect your assets while providing for your family once the divorce is completed.

    We have a lot of experience in dealing with difficult financial matters, property and estates; as well as catering to high-net-worth individuals, and clients with assets abroad. So, if you’d like advice on how to handle your assets, our financial settlement lawyers and forensic accounting team can help you.

  • Civil partnership dissolution

    Taking the decision to end a civil partnership takes a heavy emotional toll. While many are familiar with the concept of divorce, the path to dissolving a civil partnership will feel much less clear. The process used to end a civil partnership is known as dissolution and it can only be instigated after you have been in a civil partnership for a year.

    If you choose to dissolve your civil partnership, you will still be entitled to all the same benefits and entitlements as those who get divorced, and in a similar vein, thought will need to be given to the sharing of assets and the arrangements that need to be made for your children. To help you navigate a dissolution, our expert team can provide practical guidance and peace of mind.
