Our divorce and family law services in West London
We offer a wide range of divorce and family law services for families and individuals throughout West London from our Hammersmith law offices.
Divorce and Civil Partnership Dissolution
Our West London divorce solicitors specialise in non-confrontational dispute resolution, including mediation and collaborative law. This means in most cases we are able to help you get divorced or end a civil partnership without the need for court action, saving you time, money and a lot of stress.
We also have particular expertise in international divorce, including established links with specialist lawyers in other countries whose local knowledge and services we can call on as required.
Financial Settlements for Divorce
We can help you reach a financial settlement for your divorce or civil partnership as quickly and cost-effectively as possible, normally through negotiation, mediation or collaborative law. This helps to keep the process as amicable as possible while still ensuring your best interests and those of your loved ones stay protected. If you are unable to settle the case through one of these methods we will guide you through the Court process and provide advise on the best strategy for your case.
Arrangements for Children
Our child law solicitors in West London can help work out all the details of how your children will be cared for following the end of your relationship, including with which parent they will live, contact and visitation rights for the non-resident parent, child maintenance and any other important issues.
If you and your partner are living together without getting married or entering a civil partnership, a cohabitation agreement, also sometimes called a ‘living together agreement’, can clearly set out both of your rights to shared assets, such as your home, savings and investments. This can provide certainty over each party’s rights and responsibilities and give peace of mind over what will happen if your relationship ends.
Prenuptial Agreements and Postnuptial Agreements
Our family lawyers in West London can help you create a pre-nuptial agreement or post-nuptial agreement that protects you in case your marriage ends in divorce. We have the expertise to negotiate the agreement without causing unnecessary conflict while making sure the resultant agreement is fair to both parties and meets the necessary requirements to be considered by a judge if it is ever needed.
Adoption and Fertility
Our adoption and fertility solicitors in West London can guide you through the entire adoption process as well as all issues surrounding sperm and egg donors and surrogacy. This ensures you can create or expand your family while ensuring your legal rights as a parent are protected at all times.
Our family mediators in Hammersmith provide a friendly, highly effective family dispute resolution service, helping you to unpick family conflicts and reach amicable solutions that allow you to move forward in a positive way. This is usually the fastest and least expensive way to resolve family conflicts, including those around divorce and separation.
Collaborative Family Law
Our trained collaborative lawyers offer an alternative form of family dispute resolution for divorce and the related issues. This approach involves you and your ex-partner meeting, each supported by your own lawyer trained in collaborative law. We will then work with you, your ex and their lawyer to sort out all of the important issues, such as financial settlements and arrangements for children.
By using collaborative law for your divorce, you can get a resolution that works for you amicably, while having the reassurance of your own trained legal representative there throughout to help with any more complicated issues and ensure your interests stay protected.
