What is a Family Law Solicitors?
Family law encompasses a whole range of different areas. These include:
Family relationships: This area also includes marriages and civil partnerships, you may need or want to make some legal arrangements before you enter into either of these, i.e. a will or a pre-nuptial agreement in the event of a separation or death in the future. Divorce also comes under this header and is the main reason today that people will seek legal advice. You will want a family law solicitor Guildford who is best placed to help you negotiate a successful settlement and help steer you through the process. Domestic violence is also under this remit and if you are experiencing this it is vital that you seek help quickly, so that arrangements can be put into place speedily to ensure both you and your families safety. Co-habitation is another area and covers anyone in a relationship, irrespective of same sex or heterosexual, who aren't married, but who wish to have formal arrangements in place for their children, assets, finances etc. in the event of a death or separation in the future.
Children: This area covers things like parental responsibility, this means who has legal rights, responsibility and duty towards the child. You need parental responsibility to be able to have a say in the child's life, for instance where they live or go to school. You also need this to be able to sign permission slips from the school. This is something which is vitally important when it comes to child custody arrangements and child maintenance. Child custody itself falls in this area and can be the biggest thing to arrange in the event of a separation or divorce. It is certainly one of the most emotional and we can help you through negotiating with your ex partner to achieve a successful outcome. Children's rights are in this area too. Children will need protecting if the parents are splitting up or if there is any other family situation happening where their rights need to be upheld. Adoption comes under this too. This process can take a long time and be very demanding and frustrating on people. As family law solicitors Guildford Surrey we can help you through this with our years of experience in this field and can help you complete paperwork and offer advice where needed. Our testimonials speak for themselves.
