Why Should You Choose Our Brighton Family Solicitors?
We understand that the success of our firm depends on the quality of our people. Our staff are friendly, supportive and caring and always put the client first.
Our team of expert family law solicitors have a great deal of experience in advising clients who need assistance with family law matters. Examples of the types of work we regularly undertake include –
• Divorce. Our family law solicitors advise on all aspects of divorce law and procedure and have extensive experience in international and high-net-worth divorce. We regularly help clients resolve the financial aspects of their divorce both by agreement with their ex-partner and through the Court.
• Cohabitation Agreements. We will prepare an agreement which provides certainty as to the intentions of the couple both during the course of the relationship and in the unhappy event of a separation.
• Preparing and advising on Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements (more commonly known as ‘Pre-nups’ and ‘Post-nups’). Our solicitors will ensure that the agreement accurately reflects the wishes of you and your partner and meets all relevant legal requirements. We will also advise on the impact of a Pre-nup or Post-nup on your current and future finances.
• Separation Agreements. These agreements are useful for couples who may not want to get a divorce for religious reasons or would like some time apart to assess their feelings and consider the future of their relationship. Separation Agreements can be used to address issues such as financial arrangements and where the couple’s children should live during the separation period. Our family solicitors will advise on the impact and enforceability of a Separation Agreement and draft an agreement which accords with your wishes and effectively protects your position.
How Do Our Family Solicitors In Brighton Work?
We understand that the best family law solicitors in Brighton need more than just first-class legal expertise. Our solicitors couple legal knowledge with a personal touch. We are approachable and empathetic, and work hard to put our clients at ease. We take the time to get to know our clients and their needs and tailor our advice to each client’s individual circumstances. We understand, for example, that couples in a second marriage may have different priorities than those who have not been married before, and that couples with children will want to ensure that the interests of those children are fully protected.
Our solicitors will never confuse you with legal jargon but instead, use plain English to ensure you understand all aspects of your matter. We will keep in regular contact with you, and you will be kept fully up to date with the progress of your case and any developments. We place significant value on developing strong working relationships with our clients and involve them at all stages of their matter and in all key decisions. Our approach to cases is to blend our legal experience with your objectives to devise a strategy you are happy with.
Our family law solicitors understand that many clients worry about legal costs. Our firm ethos is to be entirely transparent about billing and keep clients up to date on fees. We are a client-focused firm and always endeavour to secure your desired outcome in the most cost-effective way. We work dynamically, identifying practical solutions wherever possible, and always seek to avoid the time and expense of Court proceedings where we can.
We will try to fix a price if the matter allows, either overall or for the upcoming stage. If the facts of a matter are such that this is not feasible, we will work with you to come up with a billing strategy you are comfortable with. This might be by agreeing to limit fees to a certain amount and then seeking your approval before continuing work, or providing regular fee quotes, updates and breakdowns. If you have any queries about fees, our family law solicitors are always happy to address them and will do so as quickly and comprehensively as possible.
