Divorce is often portrayed in the media as a confrontational legal free-for-all, with parties attacking each other over every minor point. For the vast majority of people this is not the experience they have.

Yes, there are “difficult” divorces but most people want to address what needs to be sorted out with the minimum of disputes and get on with the lives.

Family law solicitors make every effort to minimise the conflict, emotional anguish and stress that divorce can bring to all those involved.

Divorce and Finance

Financial issues and future financial security are one of the most important issues that clients worry about during separation and divorce.  Whether you are in a marriage or facing a civil partnership dissolution, many of the same challenges can exist over financial affairs and understanding how finances can be split between the parties involved.

Money and assets are often where disputes can arise and where individuals can be tempted to “hide” assets or not fully understand what does need to be declared.

rhw’s family law team have a lot of experience in the area of finance, even in the most complex of divorces. They know what questions to ask and how best to protect your interests. No one wants to stir up conflict in this area. The aim is to find a fair agreement as smoothly as possible so that you can get your life back on track.

As with all the other legal areas we provide advice on, rhw’s team will represent your best interests. Based on your requirements to achieve future financial stability (and those of your children if applicable) and the financial situation on the ground, we will present you with the best options that are available.

Please contact rhw’s family team for more details and to understand how we can help your unique situation. No two clients are the same and we never treat them as such.

Children & Family Law Advice

Child law advice is an area that concerns many of our clients the most. Parents are naturally concerned over how separation and divorce will affect their children. This is perfectly natural, and it would be very unusual if the welfare of your children was not going to be the most important thing on your mind during a divorce.

rhw’s legal team have a huge amount of experience of the issues involving children within the family law spectrum and are very aware of the concerns of their clients with regard to this area.

Relationship breakdowns can be extremely challenging times for children and they will often have to adapt to a lot of change. We help find the least difficult way to facilitate what needs to be agreed.

rhw’s  priority is to ensure that the decisions that you and your ex-partner come to are in the best interest of the children and also reflect what you want as far as that can be achieved.  We can help on visitation rights, financial arrangements, or how key decisions are made in your child’s life.
