Family & Divorce
Unfortunately, not all marriages, civil partnerships or relationships are a success.
Towards the end of a relationship, one or both of the parties involved may seek to dissolve their relationship in order to obtain legal separation.
In this case, it is essential that concise and accurate legal advice is at hand from specialist family Solicitors.
For any children under the age of 18 involved in such a legal case, it is important that the court is satisfied with their welfare. In such cases, separate applications may be necessary in order to resolve conflicting issues between parents.
We believe in negotiation and agreement by way of family assets. This may refer to matrimonial dwellings, which in some cases are jointly owned, but may be under the name of only one cohabitant.
Other areas our family Solicitors can advise on are:
- Domestic violence
- Child care proceedings
- Protection of families
- Civil partnerships
- Pre-nuptial agreements for marriages and civil partnerships.
We can assist in all necessary form for legal proceedings, including emergency forms. Many clients that wish to start proceedings in the area of family law will be eligible for legal aid. To speak to a family Solicitor in Blackpool contact us on 01253 629 300 or Email Daren Guite
