What help can a family law solicitor in Wakefield provide?

Family solicitors assist individuals in a wide array of family related legal concerns, including relationship cases, parental needs and financial matters. Solicitors practicing this area of law will aim to work swiftly through cases to minimise disruption to their clients and work with empathy and honesty at all times. There are many reasons that a person may need help from a family law solicitor, and some of the most frequent include:

  • 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 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 assist in writing up a legally binding cohabitation agreement. The agreement will serve to protect both parties and minimise conflicts in the event of a relationship break-up as it will help detail how assets should be divided and who owns what property.
  • Prenuptial Agreements - Prenuptial agreements serve to provide a level of protection for a couple entering into a marriage, with regards to their finances, assets and any children that they have from a previous relationship. The prenuptial agreement is a document that can be created with the support of a solicitor that allows a couple to set out their rights regarding any finances, property, debts, or assets that they owned prior to the marriage or during the marriage. The solicitor will work closely with their client to ensure that they consider their need for protection and which assets should be included in the prenuptial agreement.
  • 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 solicitor will maintain the welfare of any children as their priority throughout divorce proceedings and will strive to ensure that they are as disrupted as possible throughout the case.
  • Child Arrangement Orders - A child arrangement order used to be referred to as a ‘residence order’ or ‘contact order’. This legal document determines where a child should live, how and when a child should spend time with each parent and when and what contact methods are allowed. 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 aim to ensure the child’s welfare and emotional wellbeing throughout the child arrangement order application.
