It is a fact of life that disputes will arise, whether in your personal life or in business. It could be the breakdown of a marriage/relationship, giving rise to substantial property claims, or the future arrangements for resolving matters regarding children of the family. During which it is likely to be a time of emotional distress, our expert family lawyers who have a wealth of experience will provide you with clear and sensible advice, whilst supporting you through this difficult period.
We fully understand that a break down of a relationship can be overwhelming and an emotional time. We are therefore available to guide you through the process and to help you decide initially whether a divorce/dissolution or separation is the best course action. Thereafter, assisting you in dealing with and resolving your divorce to include the experience to defend your divorce should it become necessary.
Where individuals may require advice to safeguard their assets pre marriage/civil partnership or once married we have a wealth of experience of advising upon pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements.
We recognise that during a divorce/separation and or dissolution of a civil partnership the parties will be conscious to resolve the outstanding finances to provide them and any children of the marriage with financial certainty and security. As we are experts who have a wealth of experience, we are able to advise on modest asset cases to high value which can involve complex business assets (to include family businesses), property portfolios, to include properties abroad, high value pensions and knowledge of tax and advising those with investment background/investment markets/brokers.
We provide excellent advice to parents on all issues relating to their children and represent individuals during the course of disputes and/or Children Act proceedings, when necessary, to include:
Domestic abuse encompasses not only violence but also can be a pattern of behaviour that is used to control another person by means of physical, emotional, and psychological actions or threats and intimidating behaviour over a period of time. Foskett’s have a wide experience of such matters and can assist with obtaining protective court orders (injunctions) to protect the individual (a non-molestation order) and an occupation order for exclusion from the property, if required. We also have wide knowledge and success of defending such injunction order applications.
To assist individuals prior to cohabiting we advise that the arrangements are formalised in a cohabitation agreement at the outset as to what should happen in the event of the relationship coming to an end. We are also well regarded for resolving cohabitation disputes in the event of the breakdown of a relationship where a cohabitation agreement was not put in place at the outset.
We offer an informative 1-hour initial meeting at a reduced costs of £150 inclusive of VAT. You will come away from this meeting with sufficient knowledge to help you decide how you wish to proceed. Please do not hesitate to contact our family team for further information.
