Financial settlements

During a divorce, it’s necessary to divide your finances and assets. This must be done as fairly as possible in order to ensure that the needs of all parties are being met.

Child arrangements

Separations and divorces are particularly hard for any children involved. It’s important that child arrangements are made quickly to avoid additional stress or disruption to the child’s life.

The court will always make a child’s wellbeing a priority, but with the support of experienced family law solicitors, you can use methods like mediation to make decisions regarding your child’s education, living arrangements, etc.

Social Services

If Social Services become involved regarding a child, it can be very worrying and distressing. It is very important that you seek legal advice at an early stage by contacting experienced childcare lawyers. Our family law solicitors represent parents, children, grandparents and others in disputes with Social Services. We have a number of very experienced lawyers who are able to offer specialised legal advice in Eastbourne, Hastings or the surrounding area.

Pre-nuptial, post-nuptial & cohabitation agreements

If you are planning to marry, enter into a civil partnership, buy property or live together, you should consider entering into a cohabitation agreement, pre-nuptial agreement, post-nuptial agreement or Declaration of Trust. These agreements will set out what you both agree should happen in the event of a separation or other issues.

Our family law solicitors are ready to advise you to determine the grounds of these agreements providing practical assistance in securing the appropriate agreement to ensure that in future years very substantial legal costs, emotional distress and time may not be lost should a dispute arise as to what should happen to your assets.

Family Mediation

Our family lawyers include trained mediators who can provide an alternative to court proceedings for resolving family law disputes.

Family mediation is a service that helps couples deal with any or all of the questions relating to their separation or divorce in a thoughtful and cooperative way. If you and your partner are facing separation or divorce, you will want arrangements for the future to be fair and workable. In all cases, particularly if children are involved, it is important that an agreement is reached with the minimum of conflict and distress.

Our flexible family law pricing

You deserve high quality legal advice for a fair price, so we work hard to keep our pricing competitive while maintaining the very best standards of legal advice and client service.

We are able to offer fixed fees for many types of family law work, where a price will be agreed upon in advance for handling a specific matter. Where this is not possible, we will tell you the hourly rates charged by everyone we expect to work on your case and give a realistic estimate of your likely overall costs.
