Our family law services

Our Cardiff office has specialist solicitors with years of experience in all aspects of family law, so you can be confident that we’ll be able to help no matter what your circumstances.

Our areas of expertise include:

  • Divorce - including negotiating settlement agreements, child care arrangements, the management of shared property and assets and the division of wealth and savings. If you’re getting divorced, you don’t have to go it alone. A skilled divorce solicitor can streamline the process, making it as quick and stress-free as possible while also ensuring you receive what you’re entitled to. Our Cardiff family law solicitors can also help with the dissolution of civil partnerships, providing reliable advice and representing your interests in any negotiations or hearings. Crucially for both divorce and civil partnership dissolution, our lawyers can ensure that all paperwork is completed accurately and in time for important deadlines.
  • Children - including child arrangements in cases of divorce, separation, the death of a parent/caregiver and domestic violence. Our specialist solicitors can also help with cases where a child’s rights need to be protected, as well as with child safeguarding cases. Situations involving children can be very sensitive and need to be handled by a trained professional. We’ve an experienced family law team here in Cardiff, so you can be confident that a tried-and-tested specialist in child law will be handling your case.
  • Cohabitation - including cohabitation agreements for unmarried couples who live together and perhaps have children, shared assets and joint finances. A Slater and Gordon family law solicitor can help you to draw up a cohabitation agreement that lays down in a legal document what will happen to shared finances, children, pets and property if you and your partner should separate. For many couples, this is a good alternative to the legal protections offered to married couples. It’s a safeguard in case the worst should happen.
  • Separation - including separation agreements, which are designed for married couples who don’t wish to go through the divorce process but are no longer in a relationship. This agreement sets out details relating to the division of assets, child arrangements and what will happen with property when a relationship ends. Without any kind of agreement in place, you could face confusion and disputes with your former partner as you try to sort out these often complicated arrangements.

If you need expert advice on these or any other family law situations, please don’t hesitate to contact one of our compassionate, highly trained solicitors in Cardiff. Whatever your situation, we’ll listen carefully to the details of your case and offer our legal advice in plain language. Our solicitors aim to be realistic, honest and straightforward at all times, whether it’s advising you on the first steps to take or updating you on the progress of an ongoing case.
