Relationships can be complicated, children, property, business assets and money can all cause more confusion. Whether it’s at the beginning or the end of a relationship, protect yourself and your loved ones with a simple agreement, it’s often the best way to set things up properly for the future.

Disputes between Unmarried Partners

Unmarried partners do not enjoy the same protection in the law as married couples – and yet often have exactly the same problems as married couples who are separating. They may have assets to divide, property to deal with and children to make arrangements for. Our experts can help you with detailed advice as well as handling what can be complex negotiations.

Disputes Involving Children

Our partners understand that resolving cases involving children needs that extra care, focus and flexibility. We’ll work closely with you to find an amicable and sustainable resolution that works for you and your children.

Divorce and Separation

When a relationship comes to an end, it’s important that you understand your rights in law before you make any decisions. Our partners have expertise in dealing with all aspects of a break up. Whatever assets are involved, from the family home to businesses or land, trust funds and pensions – we can ensure that you are aware of your rights.

Financial Settlements and Pension Sharing

Specialists in long term agreements and pension sharing and transfer agreements will ensure that your security is assured. With life expectancy into the 90s for some, an agreement made today needs to stand the test of time.

Living Together

It’s often a good idea to set out in advance the financial terms on which you will share a home with someone. Whether a partner or just a friend, its safer to agree in advance what will happen if there is a split in the future.
