Our divorce and family law services in Chelsea
Our specialty is non-confrontational divorce, allowing you to sort out all of the details of ending your relationship without the need for court action in most cases. By using methods such as mediation and collaborative law, we can help you agree a financial settlement, arrangements for children and any other aspects or your divorce. We also have particular expertise in international divorce, regularly helping clients where one of both parties are living overseas, or are not UK citizens.
Whether you are getting divorced or separating, planning to adopt, or are facing any other legal issues involving children, our expert team can help you make the necessary arrangements quickly and with the minimum conflict possible. Where there is a dispute with your children’s other parents, our focus on non-confrontational methods means we can generally resolve any issues in a way that allows you to preserve a positive relationship, which is usually in your children’s best interests.
If you and your partner are planning to buy a property together, or live together in a property that one of you owns, it is strongly recommended to create a cohabitation agreement. This allows you to define how the mortgage and any other bills will be paid and what rights each of you has to the property if your relationship ends. We can help you create a cohabitation agreement that protects both of your interests while keeping the whole process harmonious so there is no negative impact on your relationship.
As people are tending to get married later than in previous generations, it is increasingly common to own property and other significant assets when you marry. A pre-nuptial agreement can help you protect those assets in the event your marriage ends in divorce, giving you peace of mind that your future is protected no matter what. We can help you create a pre-nup that meets the necessary legal standard to be considered by a judge, giving you the strongest possible protection, while also ensuring the agreement does not create unwanted tension with your spouse.
Family dispute resolution
Legal disputes with your loved ones or a former partner can be highly emotional, stressful and complicated to resolve. Our family dispute resolution experts are trained in mediation and collaborative law, allowing us to guide you towards a positive outcome that works for everyone, without the need for court action in most cases.
LGBTQI family law
We are leading experts in LGBTQI family law, having specialised in this area for many years. We can help with a wide range of issues, including divorce, civil partnership dissolution and separation, as well as adoption, surrogacy, sperm and egg donation and all other issues related to LGBTQI parenting.
If you or your children have been the victim of domestic abuse, either physical or verbal, we can help take immediate steps to make you and your loved ones safe. This includes preventing your abuser from coming near you and your children, or contacting you, as well as forcing them to leave your shared home if required. We offer a sensitive, practical approach to domestic abuse issues designed to make it as easy as possible to get the protection you and your family need.
