What help can a family law solicitor in Pontefract provide?

Family law solicitors assist clients for a variety of different personal and domestic matters, including cases regarding children, relationships and property. Solicitors who work in family law are equipped to help families with empathy and speed to make sure that there is as little disruption to their lives as is possible. Family solicitors may be needed for a host of different issues, with some of the more common including:

  • 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 support their client in applying to the court for an order and explaining the processes involved in obtaining the order. The solicitor will strive to achieve the most favourable outcome for their clients whilst maintaining stability for the wellbeing of children at all times.
  • Divorce - Divorce is an emotional and often very sad event, especially in instance that involve children. Solicitors who specialise in family law will help their clients to understand and progress through the procedures involved in getting divorced, including liaisons between all parties and the submission of required documents. The solicitor will also focus on ensuring that any children involved are thoroughly considered, assets are divided fairly and that the terms of the divorce are legally binding. The solicitor will also consider the divorcing couple’s debts, finances, responsibilities and future contact, The welfare of any involved children will be the prime consideration of the solicitor throughout the divorce proceedings, who will aim to ensure that emotional distress is minimised at all times.
  • Cohabitation Agreements - When an unmarried couple or a couple who have not entered into a civil partnership decide to move in together, a cohabitation agreement can be used to offer protection. The cohabitation agreement will lay out the details of who owns what prior to and during the relationship, who has what responsibilities and who will pay for what as well as details about who will complete home related tasks. The family law solicitor will help their clients to create 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.
  • Prenuptial Agreements - Prenuptial agreements work to offer couples a level of certainty and protection for their pre-marriage assets, finances, and family commitments such as children from a previous relationship. A solicitor can support couples to create a prenuptial agreement that considers the rights of each person with regards to their debts, finances, assets and property - both those earned before the marriage and during. The solicitor will assist their client in understanding the importance of protecting against risks and determining which assets should be included in the prenuptial agreement.
