Family law covers a range of issues, including divorce and judicial separation, as well as advising clients on the financial aspects of relationships such as prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, financial settlements, and financial provision for children. It also covers aspects of children law and domestic violence.

There are several reasons why you may need to consult a family law solicitor. Family lawyers can help to ease the strain and provide peace of mind in such circumstances, and ensure both financial and domestic security, for example:

• If your relationship has broken down, you may be unaware of your legal rights and how best to proceed.
• There may be financial disparity between you and your partner, and you might be unsure of how to redress this imbalance and to ensure financial security for yourself.
• You may be concerned for the wellbeing of your children or how the breakdown of your relationship will impact them and will be seeking assurance as to the best way forward for all concerned.
• You, or a family member, may be experiencing domestic violence and will be wanting to safely and discreetly take steps to end the cycle of abuse and to put legal protections in place.
