What Do Our Family Law Solicitors Advise On?
From our offices in Brighton and Hove, our family law solicitors advise clients from around the globe on all aspects of family law. We assist anyone who needs help with family law matters and regularly act for spouses, civil partners, cohabitees, parents and grandparents.
Examples of the types of issues we frequently assist clients with include the following –
- Pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements
Pre-nuptial agreements and post-nuptial agreements allow parties to control how their assets should be divided in the unhappy event of a marital breakdown. Pre-nuptial agreements are entered into prior to marriage, whereas post-nuptial agreements are put in place afterwards. Our family law solicitors will work closely with you to prepare an agreement which accurately and effectively reflects your wishes.
- Cohabitation Agreements
Cohabitation agreements allow non-married couples to record their intentions regarding their relationship. Not only can they be used to document a couple’s agreement over matters such as the division of joint assets and maintenance payments should the relationship break down, but they can also be used to give clarity on pertinent matters, including next of kin rights and ownership of the family home. Our family law solicitors in Brighton and Hove have extensive experience in drafting agreements which properly convey the parties’ intentions and satisfy all legal requirements.
- Divorce and separation
Our Brighton & Hove family law solicitors are experienced in all aspects of divorce law and procedure. We will help you to understand the issues which arise in your case and ensure that a favourable outcome is achieved in the quickest and least acrimonious way.
- International Divorce
Divorces which involve assets or parties from abroad can be particularly complex and require input from a legal team experienced in international divorce. Our solicitors have a wealth of experience in dealing with such matters and will provide all necessary assistance to facilitate a swift resolution.
What Should You Look For When Choosing A Family Law Solicitor In Brighton And Hove?
Many of the issues which arise in family law cases can be emotive, stressful and overwhelming. Our family law solicitors understand that clients need both comprehensive, concise legal advice and a compassionate, understanding approach. We pride ourselves on being friendly, approachable and responsive. We are always pleased to hear from our clients, both during the matter and afterwards. Clients regularly comment on our ‘courteous, professional’ service and how our solicitors quickly put them at ease.
Family law cases often involve other legal practice areas, including property and wills and probate. Our solicitors have expertise in all relevant areas of law and adopt a multi-disciplinary approach which enables them to identify and address pertinent issues promptly and efficiently. From the initial meeting, either at our family law solicitors’ offices in Brighton and Hove or at another location convenient to you, we will seek to identify and understand your individual concerns and bespoke needs. Our family law solicitors will never confuse you with legal jargon and will instead support and guide you through the process, ensuring you are fully involved in all aspects and at all stages of your case.
How Much Will A Family Law Solicitor In Brighton And Hove Cost?
The costs of a matter will vary depending on the complexity of the issues involved and the time required to effectively address them. We are always upfront, transparent and flexible when it comes to how your matter will be billed. Where possible, we will provide certainty over fees by fixing a price from the outset. If we cannot – because the full facts of a matter are unknown, or it is likely that issues will come to light as the case progresses – we can limit our costs to a specified agreed amount and only undertake further work with your agreement. Where billing on an hourly rate basis works best, we will ensure that you are fully informed of the rates charged by the family law solicitor working on your case. We will provide regular fee quotes, updates and breakdowns, and will address any queries about costs swiftly and comprehensively.
