The Cavendish family team have more than 20 years experience dealing with all aspects of family law and we pride ourselves on being able to handle your case with care and sensitivity.
Our clients come to us at an often difficult time in their lives and we help with the complex problems that arise from family breakdown, whether financial or child-related. Our first step is to encourage communication between everyone involved and we always consider the needs of the whole family, particularly the children. Wherever possible we aim to avoid court proceedings, through mediation, collaborative law and round table meetings. Where this is not possible we can represent your interests in court and have access to highly experienced Counsel.
Many couples decide that they want to create an agreement early on in their relationship to set out how their assets should be dealt with in the case of a relationship breakdown. We can help you to make such an agreement and in doing so potentially avoid susbstantial legal fees in the future.
Our areas of specialism include:
- Financial applications
- Children disputes including contact, residence, parental responsibility and applications to remove a child from the jurisdiction.
- Cohabitation disputes
- Pre and post nuptial agreements
- Cohabitation agreements and Deeds of Trust
- Separation agreements
- Collaborative Family Law
Whatever your circumstances, our team always aim for the best possible outcome. We advise you every step of the way ensuring you feel guided and supported.
