Care Proceedings and Matters Involving Social Services
Our team can help parents with care proceedings and all other matters involving social services.

When a couple divorces or separates they need to divide their assets fairly. Any agreements that were put in place before their marriage need to be assessed, along with all the assets they have gathered during their time together.
With the right guidance and support from our family law solicitors, you can often reach an agreement during this first stage. Our expertise in family law means we can often help achieve this through negotiation with your partner.
If you do not wish to marry but you are living with your partner, our family law solicitors can help you set out a cohabitation agreement. These are legally binding documents that set out what happens to any assets, such as your property, in the event of separation. It can also cover matters regarding debt payments, mortgage payments and who will be responsible for ongoing household bills after a split.
Pre and Post Nuptial Agreements
Prenuptial agreements are legal documents that outline exactly what will happen to your assets and children if you get divorced. Our experienced family law solicitors can help make sure you and your partner are well-protected from any future disagreements by helping you set your agreement, either before or after you get married.
Our family law solicitors have got extensive experience dealing with matters involving domestic abuse. If you have suffered physically, emotionally or even financially as a result of abuse within your relationship, we can help you. For example, we may help you obtain a non-molestation or occupation order from the courts to protect you from your ex, at the same time as setting out child agreements and finalising your divorce.
Our multilingual Islamic law solicitors work closely with the Sharia Council of Great Britain and well-respected Islamic Scholars.
This helps us ensure that all of the legal services we offer to Muslim clients are compliant with both English and Sharia law.
A consent order outlines how you split assets such as money, investments and property with your ex after a divorce.
Consent orders are voluntary agreements, which outline you and your partner’s legal rights. Once approved by the courts, they are legally binding.
Family mediation is a helpful tool for civilly resolving disputes, without needing to go to court.
