1. Hewitsons Solicitors
Generally, when people think of family law, it is in the context of relationship breakdown and divorce. Sometimes, the law may seem to have little in common with family life and legal processes can appear daunting. Hewitsons have a dedicated team of family lawyers who specialise in guiding clients through marital and relationship breakdowns with tact and sensitivity. We are committed to resolving matters in a constructive, cost effective and sympathetic manner. Our commitment to quality of service and personal attention enables us to preserve a workable relationship between the parties whilst helping to secure the most advantageous division of the family assets.

Our team is led by Ian Pattinson, who has more than twenty-five years experience of handling complicated and difficult family matters. He is recognised as a leading individual in his field, and has a particular reputation for advocacy. Ian also specialises in complex financial claims. He holds the Resolution Accreditation as a specialist in both Advocacy and Advanced Financial Provision. Less than 100 family lawyers in the country currently hold this particular qualification, whilst the number of specialist advocates is less than 120. In addition we are able, unlike many other firms, to offer a service at partner level to clients who prefer to see either a male or female lawyer. Teresa Brown, who works with Ian, has handled a number of high value cases involving agricultural assets.

Our family lawyers are members of the Solicitors' Family Law Association - now to be known as "Resolution - First for Family Law". We accordingly adopt, wherever possible, the conciliatory approach recommended by Resolution, and are committed to resolving matters without unnecessary acrimony. The objective must always be to settle a dispute by agreement, negotiated as swiftly and amicably as the situation will permit. This is particularly important where children are involved and can also mean that a settlement is achieved more cost effectively.

In most cases, the degree of disagreement between the parties is directly referable to the legal costs which the matter generates. Accordingly, the greater the level of dispute between the parties, the more the matrimonial resources (not only financial) are likely to be depleted.

We are also firm advocates of alternative means of dispute resolution, including independent mediation.

People often assume that, when a relationship ends, divorce represents the only outcome. However, for some couples, initially the best option may be to spend a period of time living separately. This may offer the opportunity to explore a reconciliation or alternatively to move towards a permanent ending of the relationship.

Although you may decide that you do not wish to begin Court proceedings, arrangements can still be made to deal with issues relating to your children, property and income. We can assist you in negotiating these matters with your spouse to try and achieve a workable outcome.

In relation to financial matters, we will encourage an amicable and constructive approach designed to ensure full and accurate disclosure of your respective financial positions leading to a negotiated agreement. This can then be drawn up as a legal document known as a Separation Deed or Separation Agreement. The document can cover a wide variety of aspects.

2. Hegarty & Co Solicitors Peterborough
When problems arise in families, they can be understandably distressing. As a result, you may find it hard to concentrate on legal technicalities, or details that may be important. Speaking to someone who will understand your situation and the way you feel will help. Within our large family department, we have specialists in most areas of family law and most are members of Resolution (formerly known as Solicitor's Family Law Association) that sets high standards for membership.

If you need help regarding a family matter please do not hesitate to contact us. We will arrange to have a meeting with you to take the details of your situation and give you an indication of the costs (including if you are eligible for financial assistance) for any action you decide upon.

Anyone who has been married for over a year provided the relevant criteria on residency & domicile is met. During your first meeting, a solicitor will check that you are eligible to commence proceedings.

If reconciliation is not possible, it is important that you act as fast as you can to ensure that your rights are properly protected. You might have to take emergency action, such as applying for an injunction; applying to the Court for an Order relating to your children; making an application for maintenance for yourself or making an application to the Child Support Agency for child maintenance; making an application to ensure that your spouse does not dispose of family assets; commencing divorce proceedings or simply applying to the Benefits Agency.

With offices situated close to the commercial heart of the city, and a splendid view over Parkers Piece, we are ideally placed for our clients.

In the current climate it is quite straightforward to obtain a divorce. Even if you live in the same house as your husband or wife, you can still start proceedings. The law in general terms is on the basis that if one party says the marriage has irretrievably broken down and there can be no future, divorce is inevitable. It usually takes about 3-4 months to reach decree nisi stage.

7. Barr Ellison - Solicitors
Everyone understands how distressing it can be when a relationship breaks down. If you find yourself in the situation where divorce or separation is being considered, you will need sensitive help from many quarters, not least your solicitor, whether you decide to opt for a final conclusion or mediation.

In the same way, as a form of insurance, you may feel it necessary to find a legal way of protecting yourself should your currently happy living situation turns out not to be a lasting one - a pre-nuptual agreement in other words.

Many law firms talk about good, old fashioned client care (and it?s easy to talk about) but this firm has an advantage in this regard.

We?ve been around for over 150 years. In other words, long enough to know what good, old fashioned client care actually means.

Every member of the team is expected to offer you the kind of personal service they?d expect themselves. And, if you visit us, we?ve tried to create an environment in which you will feel welcome.

We have been awarded Investors in People and Lexcel (the Law Society Practice Standard). In fact we were the first law firm locally to achieve both standards concurrently.
