Child arrangements order
A recent case handled by Stowe Family Law's Swindon office in Wiltshire involved a couple in the process of getting divorced who were finding it difficult to reach a mutual agreement about the custody of their three young children.
As a result, they sought the help of the family solicitors at Stowe Family Law's Swindon office to begin legal proceedings and obtain a child arrangements order from the family court.
With their expertise in child law, the Swindon team were able to help the couple establish arrangements that prioritised the best interests of the children.
By obtaining a child arrangements order the parents could share parental responsibilities for their kids in a way that worked for all parties, and the family were able to forward.
Divorce and pension division
Stowe Family Law's Swindon office recently reached a financial settlement in a case involving a couple going through divorce after almost 15 years of marriage.
The Swindon team worked closely with the client to establish their financial circumstance and identify a financial settlement that would support them long-term, including a share of their ex-spouse’s pension pot.
They helped negotiate the best possible financial outcome for the client including a pension sharing order and a fair and equitable share of the matrimonial assets, meaning they could look to the future with financial security.
Another case handled by Stowe Family Law's Swindon office involved an unmarried couple who had rented together for years in the Wiltshire area, with children from each of their respective former relationships.
Our client contacted us after they’d made the decision to buy a property together with a deposit largely made up of her savings.
Without the same legal rights as married couples, our client’s concerns centred around future financial protection for her and her child should she separate from her partner.
Our Swindon team were able to work with the couple to form a cohabitation agreement that met their exact circumstances, formally recording how the property is owned and how they intend to split the net sale proceeds of the property should they separate and sell.
