Family Law

Relationship breakdown is never simple and can be made more traumatic when children, substantial family and business assets and jurisdictional issues are involved. Our advice is always realistic, whilst taking into account our client’s concerns and desires.

We have an experienced team with first rate technical expertise. We provide professional, practical and common sense advice which enables you and your children to move on with your lives with the least amount of bitterness, distress and expense.

In situations where our clients do not wish to initiate formal legal proceedings in the event of relationship breakdown, we can negotiate and put into place an agreement designed to protect your financial situation and provide for your children. We also take in to account your religious requirements and ethical preferences. Our aim is always to resolve these difficult situations with the minimum of argument and distress and without depleting the family and business assets on which your future depends.
