How our family law specialists can help

Slater and Gordon’s family solicitors have successfully handled a large number and wide variety of family law cases. We’re proud to have secured a positive outcome for many of our clients, helping them to move on with their lives.

The types of cases we can help with include:

Marriage and prenuptial agreements

If you’re getting married or entering into a civil partnership, you and your partner may have discussed putting a prenuptial agreement in place to protect your finances if the worst happens and you separate. Prenuptial agreements are a sensible way to prepare for the future and for worst-case scenarios.

Our family solicitors in Watford can help you to make the right choices when considering what to include in a prenuptial agreement. We can make the process easy and quick. In most cases, once we’ve discussed your wishes with you and your partner, you can leave the work of drawing up the agreement completely to us.

If you aren’t planning to tie the knot but would still like legal protection in case of separation, our family lawyers can help you to draw up a cohabitation agreement. This is a document which, just like a prenuptial agreement, sets out what will happen to assets, money, property and children if you decide to separate in the future.

To discuss prenuptial or cohabitation agreements with a specialist lawyer, please don’t hesitate to contact our team. You can call on freephone 0808 175 8000 to speak directly to our family solicitors, or use our enquiry form to arrange a convenient callback.

Representation during a divorce

Unfortunately, not all marriages last. When they come to an end, there are many issues to be resolved and it requires a lot of legal skill and expertise to navigate these issues smoothly. A highly experienced family lawyer from Slater and Gordon can help with:

  • Financial issues - such as agreeing on how assets will be divided and on a divorce settlement to be paid to one or both parties
  • Pension arrangements
  • Childcare arrangements

Our specialist divorce solicitors can also help with separation agreements, where you may not want or be able to get divorced but nonetheless want legal protection for both parties following a split.

Please call our family solicitors to ask any questions you may have and for legal advice tailored to your exact circumstances. You can reach us on freephone 0808 175 8000 or via our online contact form.

Cases involving children

Any situation where children are involved can be extremely complex to resolve, especially when emotions are running high. Our trained, compassionate family lawyers can help families to navigate issues involving children. Our aim will always be to provide you with the best possible legal advice and to put the needs and best interests of the child first.

To discuss your case with a sensitive, experienced family lawyer, simply call Slater and Gordon on freephone 0808 175 8000.

Finding the best resolution for you

What our solicitors work for is a positive resolution for you and your family. This doesn’t necessarily mean a legal case that ends up in court. Many of our family solicitors are members of Resolution and champion a non-confrontational approach to the practice of family law.

There are circumstances where going to court is unavoidable, but in others we find that mediation, negotiation and out-of-court agreement is best for our clients and their families. It can reduce the stress and emotional impact of resolving family disputes and can also help families to save money on legal costs.

For tailored legal advice and help with a family issue, or to find out more about mediation, please call our family lawyers on freephone 0808 175 8000. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have and set up an initial consultation to discuss your circumstances at a time that suits you.
