Often, the most emotionally charged aspect of the law is that of resolving family disputes. Contesting matters that are very close to the heart can often drag out for a prolonged period without coming to a solution everyone can agree on. This can leave lasting effects on the family members involved if not dealt with effectively, which is why you should always trust a reputable and specialist legal team to oversee proceedings.

Here at St Helens Law, we have expert knowledge in a variety of family law cases, so if you are struggling to come to an agreement with a member of your family about any kind of issue, we are the people to call. Here, we list some of the most common scenarios our family solicitors in St Helens are asked to assist with.

Divorce and/or financial disputes

For many that experience it, the period of going through a divorce is one of the most stressful and challenging of their lifetime. The ending of their marriage places significant emotional strain on both parties before any differences can even be put on the table.

At St Helens Law, we are the people to turn to if you would like some professional legal advice surrounding the divorce process, ensuring that it runs as smoothly as possible – even if both parties disagree on certain aspects of the initial settlement. We’re able to use our experience in the field to be the ideal team to count on during this undoubtedly difficult time.

With divorce settlements, disagreements about finances often come too, especially if any of your belongings are owned in joint names (for example, a bank account or house). We’re able to assist in this matter and usually encourage the settlement of these issues out of court if possible.

Child custody

Whether going through a divorce or not, you may encounter a situation where the custody of your child is being disputed. At St Helens Law, we’re able to deal with these sensitive issues in a way that is considerate and effective, so all parties are able to feel comfortable about the welfare of the child or children in question.

As expected, these matters are usually very sensitive, especially as they involve young people who may not have a full understanding of what is going on. We’re able to provide assistance for those who are involved in a conflicting situation with their children at the heart of it, giving you the peace of mind you need that they will be safe and secure.
