Wherever possible, our standard approach is to listen to you and support you while you try to settle family-related disputes outside of court. If legal action is required, we have the knowledge and experience to achieve the right result. However, owing to the added time, stress, and money that normally accompany litigation, it is frequently preferable for everyone concerned to settle out of court. But most crucially, keeping out of court is better for the family members who are most susceptible to rifts and dissolution. Divorce can have a lasting impact on children, even decades later. In divorce and separation cases, particularly in the eyes of a Family Court Judge, the wellbeing of the children comes first.
The firm offers arbitration, mediation, and collaborative law as alternatives to litigation.
Should the parties’ negotiations fail, our divorce lawyers are skilled litigators.
You may be concerned about the amount of the marital pot because you believe your partner is concealing assets. A 28% capital gains tax on the family home, a property, a business portfolio, or other assets may simply be something you wish to avoid.

This is essential to getting a fair settlement as well.
