RelationshipsGet the best legal advice for any situation, from pre-nuptials and cohabitation agreements, to divorce and separation

For better or worse – we’re here for you.

When you take your relationship to the next level by moving in together, getting married or entering a civil partnership, there are many things to consider and lots of pitfalls. We can take the mystery out of the processes and explain all your options.

Pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements are becoming more popular and are the best way to help protect any children, or property, that you may have from a previous relationship. While pre-nuptial agreements are not statutorily binding, it is unlikely that a judge would ignore their terms – unless there is a very good reason to depart from them. Though discussing failure at the start of your wedded life may seem ominous, it can often give you the peace of mind to proceed happily.

Cohabitation Contracts are available for unmarried couples. They set out how you and your partner will manage your day-to-day finances. Cohabitation Contracts can include how you will share the rent or mortgage; the payment of other bills; and how to deal with any bank accounts, property or assets owned. The Contract will ensure that these issues are dealt with in the event that the relationship breaks down and can reduce the emotional pressure involved at what is often a difficult time.

MediationTurn issues into resolutions in the most painless way possible

Resolve your issues face on.

Face-to-face discussions are usually the best way to resolve issues, which is why our mediation sessions are rapidly growing in popularity. You and your former partner will be able to sit down and discuss your issues and ultimately decide on terms that can be transferred into a binding agreement.

Facilitated by our expert and objective mediator, you will both have the support from a legally trained mediator to help you make the right decision for you, without having to rely on lengthy emails, letters and phone calls.

The process can take between two and five sessions, at the end of which you will have achieved a resolution which can in turn be translated into an agreement for both parties to comply with.

If you are looking to start mediation sessions or commence proceedings regarding financial issues or children, you will need to attend a Mediation, Intake and Assessment Meeting which we offer at a fixed price of £100.00 inc. VAT.
