Family Matters

We understand the need for compassionate legal advice during times of family difficulty. We will provide clear advice on your options and wherever possible seek to resolve matters in a non-contentious and sensitive manner. Should court proceedings become necessary, we will represent your interests fully at Court. We are members of Resolution and we believe in a constructive, non-confrontational approach to family law matters.

Resolution Code Of Practice

We follow Resolution’s Code of Practice and this is the cornerstone of our work. We promote an approach to family law that is sensitive, constructive, cost-effective and most likely to result in an agreement. Our fees are transparent and we hope affordable. We can offer a variety of ways to pay including agreed fees or hourly rates. We also offer a free thirty minute consultation. The code requires solicitors to deal with each other in a civilised way and to encourage their clients to put their differences aside and reach fair agreements.

The usual areas of family law which we deal with are:

Miscellaneous Family Matters

Although we have highlighted the main family law matters above this is not an exhaustive list. There are other areas of family which we can assist you with. For example if you are suffering from harassment, intimidation or are being pestered by a former partner we can apply to court for a non-molestation order. This will then mean that they will no longer be able to threaten you or indeed have any contact with you.

Also if your ex-partner is abusive but will not leave the family home we can apply to court for an occupation order. This means that they will have to leave the property and you can remain in it without the fear of them returning.

We can also provide advice and assistance with regard to adoption, pre-nuptial agreement, post-nuptial agreement, separation agreement, prohibitive step order and specific issue order. Remember that NE Law will happily provide a free thirty minute consultation so if there is an issue which we have not mentioned please just contact us and we will endeavour to assist.
