How can a family solicitor in Aberdeen help me?

Family law solicitors can support their clients with a range of domestic and personal legal cases, often providing considerable support to protect children, relationships and property. Solicitors practicing this area of law will aim to work quickly through cases to reduce disruption to their clients and work with empathy and integrity at all times. There are several reasons that a person might require the help of a family law solicitor in Aberdeen, and a few of the more typical includes:

  • Divorce - Divorce is an emotional and often very sad event, especially in instance that involve children. Family law solicitors will guide their clients through the processes involved in obtaining a divorce and ensure that all documents are submitted correctly, on time and in a professionally manner. The solicitor will also strive to cement fair divorce terms with regards to the division of assets and the protection of any children involved. The solicitor will ensure that considerations are made with regards to a couple’s finances, debts, future contact plans and other responsibilities. The welfare of any children will be the main priority for the family law solicitor at all times and they will endeavour to minimise any impact on them throughout the divorce process.
  • Child Arrangement Orders - A child arrangement order used to be referred to as a ‘residence order’ or ‘contact order’. The child arrangement order is a legal document that outlines where the child should live, how and when the child can be contacted by a parent and how often the child can see the parent that they do not normally live with. The family law solicitor will help their clients to understand the processes involved in arranging a child arrangement order. The solicitor will aim to ensure the child’s welfare and emotional wellbeing throughout the child arrangement order application.
  • Prenuptial Agreements - Couples who are planning on getting married can gain protection for their assets, finances and any children that they have from previous relationships through the creation of a prenuptial agreement. The prenuptial agreement can be created with the support of a solicitor, who will ensure that couples consider the finances, assets, property and debts owed prior to the marriage and during the relationship. Family law solicitors will support their clients in considerations of vulnerabilities and encourage them to consider the assets that should be included in the prenuptial agreement.
  • Cohabitation Agreements - A Cohabitation Agreement can be used to protect unmarried couples or couples who are not in a civil partnership when they decide to move in together. The agreement will set out details relating to which person owns what, who will have responsibility for what and who owns property acquired during the relationship, as well as who will have the responsibility for paying for individual costs related to the home. The family law solicitor will assist in writing up a legally binding cohabitation agreement. By outlining who owns what property and how assets will be divided in advance, the cohabitation agreement offers proportion to both partners and minimises the potential for conflict in the event of a break-up.
