Separating or Divorcing - Expert Legal Advice
The breakdown of a marriage is stressful for all involved. Our experienced Family solicitors offer sensitive and sympathetic advice to steer you through the divorce process, including advising on and negotiating financial settlements for our clients.
We appreciate that everyone’s relationship and circumstances are unique. We will listen to you and discuss the available options with you, providing compassionate legal support and practical guidance.
We have extensive expertise in guiding our clients through the legal issues affecting their children following a separation. We understand the importance of minimising distress to children and placing them at the centre of all considerations.
Our Family team also have experience advising on Separations and Divorces involving complex circumstances, including family or business assets, offshore assets and trusts, foreign marriages, tracing hidden assets, asset freezing, and pension issues.
Prenuptial Agreements & Cohabitation Agreements
The Family Law team at Muscatt Walker Hayim offer expert and practical legal advice for clients considering a Prenuptial Agreement or Cohabitation Agreement. We will listen to you in order to understand your requirements and what you are hoping to achieve in order to provide the best possible legal advice.
Many of our clients are high net worth or high profile individuals who find Prenuptial Agreements an attractive option when considering how to protect their assets. We advise on and draft these agreements to ensure a fair and amicable division of assets in the event of a relationship breakdown, based on their agreement before the marriage.
Our sympathetic Family solicitors understand that it’s not easy to think about things going wrong when you are planning to get married, but Prenuptial Agreements can significantly reduce stress and difficulty for both partners in the event of a breakup.
While Prenuptial Agreements are usually for couples intending to get married, our Family Law solicitors also advise couples seeking to enter into Cohabitation Agreements. After living together for a while, couples can find their possessions and financial interests increasingly entwined and it can be difficult to clarify who owns what. Cohabitation Agreements work in much the same way as Prenuptial Agreements to provide asset protection for both partners. You can also speak with our specialist Wills & Estate Lawyers or Conveyancing Solicitors regarding any changes you maybe considering regarding estate management or property.
