Divorce and Family
What do I need to consider in a Divorce or separation?
If you are experiencing problems within your relationship and you and your partner are considering splitting up there is plenty to consider. Deciding whether to divorce or separate, agreeing on living arrangements, finding a resolution for financial matters and making decisions about child care arrangements are all important factors to think about. Because of this, Family Law requires empathy, depth of understanding and clear communication. What is also required is tenacity, a deep-rooted sense of what is ‘right’ and a spirit that gets to an appropriate solution, every time.
Our experienced Family Law Team has all of this and more. They are doggedly determined to find a solution to matrimonial and family matters that pleases clients and offer a service built around you, your needs and requirements. Meetings can be held at any three of our office locations so that frank, open and honest conversations can take place in complete confidence whilst avoiding endless court hearings and fees.
In cases involving families, Lawson-West set at the heart of all they do the needs and interests of the children. The best option for the children must be at the centre of any decisions and this is the foundations upon which our advice is built.
