  • Separation Agreements: In cases where couples choose to separate without pursuing divorce or dissolution, our solicitors can help you draft legally binding separation agreements. These agreements outline important considerations such as financial responsibilities and property division, providing both parties clarity and peace of mind.
  • Cohabitation Agreements: If you are living together outside of marriage or a civil partnership, our family law solicitors can assist you in creating comprehensive cohabitation agreements. These agreements define the rights and responsibilities of each party, ensuring that your interests are protected should the relationship end or circumstances change.
  • Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements: To protect your assets to reflect your wishes in the event of future separation, our solicitors can guide you through the creation of prenuptial or postnuptial agreements. These agreements outline the division of assets, financial responsibilities, and other important considerations, offering peace of mind for both parties.

  • Domestic Abuse and Protective Injunctions: If you are experiencing domestic violence or abuse, our solicitors are here to support you compassionately and confidently. We can help you obtain protective injunctions, such as Non-Molestation Orders and Occupation Orders, ensuring your safety and the safety of your children. We prioritise providing swift and effective legal protection, working towards a brighter and safer future.

  • Severing your Joint Tenancy: When separating from a partner, you may decide to change the way that you co-own property with them by severing any joint tenancy. Our family law solicitors can advise you in respect of severing a joint tenancy. Sometimes it can be a term of your financial arrangements that separated couples continue for a time to co-own property and, our family law solicitors can advise in respect of creating a Declaration of Trust, which legally establishes each party’s share of the property and ensures a fair distribution of assets in the future.

How our declaration of trust solicitors can help.

  • Change of Name Deeds: If you are seeking to change your name or the name of your child, our solicitors can guide you through the process, ensuring all legal requirements are met. We will prepare the necessary Change of Name Deeds, enabling you to make this important personal transition smoothly.
