Family Law

Our specialist team of family law solicitors in St Helens knows that whether you are facing divorce, a dispute regarding children, or you want to get a financial settlement finalised, they can assist by providing honest, straightforward advice, and can help you to resolve matters as swiftly as possible.

Divorce and financial remedies

A divorce dissolves a marriage. It can be obtained quickly, if dealt with efficiently.

Resolving financial disputes can be more complicated, as each case is totally individual, with its own facts and figures. We have expertise in this area, to help you resolve financial matters by agreement or at court. It is important that you are represented by divorce solicitors in St Helens, who you can trust, and who know the legal process inside and out.

Children’s custody arrangements and adoption

If you need child custody services in Merseyside, then you should look no further. We deal with all child dispute issues, whether they relate to a private dispute between parents or even if there are complicated and sensitive child care proceedings ongoing.

When children are involved, affected family members and courts are often faced with some of the most difficult decisions. Our experienced team of lawyers provides comprehensive child custody services in Merseyside, and we are able to assist anyone who is in conflict regarding children, or who harbours serious concerns about a child’s immediate safety and welfare.

Prenuptial agreements

A prenuptial agreement is entered into before you marry, and will set out how you wish your assets to be divided in the event that your marriage breaks down. Our team of divorce solicitors in St Helens can help you, by preparing a prenuptial agreement that caters to your needs. It is written in a way that ensures that it is highly likely to be influential in a court, in the event of a relationship breakdown.

Domestic abuse

The court can offer protection to victims of domestic abuse either through a non-molestation order, which prevents the abuser from using or threatening violence against the victim, or an occupation order, which will enable the victim to live at the family home to the exclusion of the abuser. Our dedicated family law solicitors in St Helens are trained to support victims of domestic abuse and will help them to get the protection that they need from their abuser.
