Disputes concerning children and family creation

We can provide expert legal advice, and sensitive high quality legal representation, if you are involved in a dispute about who your children should live with and spend time with, who is a legal parent, financial arrangements, or whether you can move abroad.  We have handled many of the UK’s leading cases in this area, including surrogacy disputes and disputes about the roles and responsibilities of known donors and co-parents. We understand the often sensitive emotional dynamics around biology, sexual orientation and gender identity, as well as the law around parenthood and status, and provide robust and strategic legal representation.

Disputes concerning relationship breakdown and finances

If you are getting divorced or dissolving your civil partnership, our experienced solicitors can offer advice, guidance and legal representation services.  In particular, we advise on complex issues around status if you have entered into an overseas marriage or domestic partnership, and need to untangle your legal status under UK law before dissolving your union. We also help with resolving the finances, including advising you on what the family court is likely to order if you cannot agree things yourselves, and providing robust strategic legal representation in negotiations or any court process to reach a financial settlement (or ultimately a court order).
