Dispute Resolution and Litigation
If you’re locked in a dispute with your ex, or even with another family member, you need to explore amicable ways of resolving the situation. A Family Law Solicitor can suggest suitable methods of alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation and arbitration, providing independent legal advice throughout.
Should alternative dispute resolution prove unsuccessful, your final option is to take the matter to Court. If it comes to that, we strongly recommend that you instruct a Family Law Solicitor to represent you throughout. He or she can present your case and fight to achieve the outcome you are hoping for.
Sometimes in life you need to put a legal agreement in place, either with your current partner or with your ex. Often these set out the financial arrangements between you. A Family Solicitor can draft these for you, and can advise what implications the agreement might have on your life. These legal agreements include:
- Separation Agreements
- Cohabitation Agreements
- Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
There are various kinds of Court Order that relate to family law including:
- Consent Orders
- Clean Break Orders
- Pension Sharing Orders
- Freezing Orders
- Non-Molestation Orders
- Occupation Orders
- Mesher Orders
- Variation of Maintenance Orders
Each Court Order suits a different situation. For instance, if you are getting a divorce, then a Consent Order or Clean Break Order can be beneficial. A Family Law Solicitor can advise whether or not you require a Court Order, and if so, can make an application to the Court.
