Family life can be complicated.

With modern pressures of life, more and more people are finding it harder to balance their family life with their other commitments. Sadly, as many people have found, such complications and pressures can lead to the irretrievable breakdown of their marriages, leading to a great deal of sadness and devastation for the family unit.

And, unfortunately, family law and divorce law in the UK are complicated too, and the moment that you and your former spouse decide that you need to separate, you should contact a solicitor who specialises in these areas. While you may have thought of the hiring of a solicitor as a waste of money, there is a fair amount that they can do to ease the pressure you and your family will face in the coming months.

At Andrew and Andrew, our family solicitors in Emsworth are trained, sensitive professionals, who will work tirelessly to ensure that an amicable solution is reached in relation to separation, child access and housing. We will always put yours and your children’s wellbeing as our number one priority and will aim to get everyone involved the best outcome from any familial problems.

But what other issues can our family solicitors in Emsworth assist with? Read on to find out!

Children

When you and your former partner are separating, it can have an enormous impact on your children. And, as mentioned previously, our family solicitors in Emsworth will work hard to ensure that the wellbeing of your children is met. We can help with joint residency orders, contact orders or prohibited steps orders. If you are unsure of which order you need, or simply want some advice in relation to child access, contact our team for advice.

Collaboration

Our team at Andrew and Andrew knows that the best way for you and your former partner to resolve any issues surrounding divorce, child access or other separation issues is with face-to-face communication. That’s why we are proud to be able to offer this service to you, to ensure that your voice is heard and that your legal rights are adhered to.

Cohabitation

In 2020, fewer people than ever are walking down the aisle, and are instead preferring to cohabitate with their long-term partners. While this doesn’t offer the same protections should you separate as marriage does, our team can draw up a cohabitation agreement, allowing you legal protections without saying ‘I do.’

Divorce

Divorce is a large area and our team is happy to help you with each step of the process. We can advise you on the procedures that are needed and, in cases where your former spouse may not agree to the divorce, we can support you in reaching an agreement that meets your needs.

Prenuptial agreements

Preparing for the future is something we can offer too. Our team is also able to offer the writing of both prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, laying down the groundwork should you and your spouse divorce in the future.
