Not every disagreement within the family needs the intervention of a lawyer, and sometimes it can complicate an already tense situation. But during divorce or separation, if there is a dispute over access to children or the division of assets of a marriage, guidance from an experienced family law solicitor helps in a number of ways.
At Van Eaton Solicitors in Streatham, we provide objective and practical advice for clients going through divorce or separation, helping to reduce the acrimony and stress that accompany a distressing period for all parties.
A Personal Approach To Divorce And Separation
Clients benefit from our personalised approach to providing advice. We endeavour to work extremely closely with family clients and aim to be a source of reassurance and support throughout the legal process. Our family law work is focused on:
- Child custody and contact arrangements — We work to achieve practical schemes for child contact and can apply for contact orders and residence orders on your behalf. We also ensure that adequate financial provision for child care is set out in any settlement.
- Divorce, division of assets and maintenance — Our firm has extensive experience investigating the financial affairs of spouses and partners to ensure that any financial settlement is fair and reflects the true status of divorcing or separating individuals.
- Grandparents’ access to children — We represent grandparents who wish to apply for contact orders to ensure they do not lose contact with grandchildren as a result of divorce or separation.
- Mediation — Where possible, we will try to resolve disputes through mediation, using independent mediators.
