Child Law

Legal matters involving children can be emotionally tense, particularly in the aftermath of a divorce or separation. Naturally, you’ll be worried about what impact a dispute could have on your children.

When you instruct the Crisp & Co family law solicitors, we will provide empathetic advice and close personal support, ensuring to put your children’s best interests first.

Our child law solicitors in Richmond can assist with a wide range of child law matters, including those arising from divorce, separation and dissolution. Our expertise includes the following:

Cohabitation agreements

Moving in with your partner is an exciting milestone, but many couples do not realise that cohabitees do not have the same legal protections as married couples.

Where a cohabiting couple split up, it can be difficult to untangle their finances and make arrangements for any children. The lack of legal protection only makes these matters more complicated.

A cohabitation agreement, sometimes known as a living together agreement, can provide legal protection for cohabiting couples. These agreements are used to set out each party’s finances, including assets, bills, debts and so on. The agreement is used to establish financial ownership and responsibilities, both while the couple are together, and in the event that they split up.

Our expert cohabitation solicitors in Richmond can guide you through the process of drafting a robust cohabitation agreement which clearly sets out your financial position and offers you financial protection.

To discuss your cohabitation agreement today, contact our family law solicitors in Richmond.

Pre-nuptial agreements

When you marry or enter into a civil partnership, this links you financially with your spouse or civil partner. In the event of a divorce, your combined assets will be taken into consideration during the divorce financial settlement, even assets acquired prior to the marriage and in your own name.

Where individuals have assets that they would like to protect, in the event of divorce or dissolution, a prenuptial agreement is well recommended. In a pre-nuptial agreement, each party will make known their financial position and how these assets would be split in the event of divorce or dissolution.

Our family law solicitors can assist you to create a prenuptial agreement that protects your assets. We can help you and your partner to negotiate matters in a sensitive manner, avoiding any tension.

Should you already be married but wish to protect your assets in the event of divorce, our family law solicitors in Richmond can guide you through the process of drafting a post-nuptial agreement.

Family Dispute Resolution

Disputes in relation to family matters can become both emotional and contentious, causing much disruption to the lives of those involved.

Our family dispute resolution solicitors in Richmond have substantial expertise in navigating families through a wide range of complex disputes. For instance, those involving finances and child arrangements.

The Crisp & Co family law team includes several trained collaborative lawyers and mediation specialists, all of whom have outstanding expertise in helping families through challenging situations. We favour alternative dispute resolution methods as these tend to be more cost effective and amicable in comparison to court proceedings.

Our divorce solicitors have much expertise in family disputes, and equally, ample experience working with families to resolve non-divorce related matters.
