The partner-led family law team at MacRoberts is renowned for its calm, pragmatic yet personal approach. We use our exceptional expertise and experience to find effective solutions that help minimise the likelihood of future problems, offering down-to-earth practical advice in an area that calls for sensitivity.
Mindful of delivering value for money without compromising quality of service, we work collaboratively with our clients to help them find the best possible outcome, reach an early settlement and maintain relationships where possible. Our unsurpassed reputation in handling family law matters includes assistance with:
Deciding to end a relationship or begin divorce proceedings can be one of the most difficult decisions we may ever have to make. In order to begin a new future, certain matters, such as the financial consequences and child arrangements, will need to be discussed and resolved. We will help you explore your options. Please contact us.
No matter how complex financial matters may seem, we can help you protect your wealth or secure your fair share. Where appropriate we can draw on our cross-departmental corporate and financial expertise to protect our clients’ financial security. We are particularly experienced when advising on preserving or making claims in respect of pensions, family businesses and shares in companies based in the UK or abroad.
Deciding and agreeing child arrangements in a way that protects relationships and preserves harmony for the family can be especially challenging when a relationship breaks down. We take a sensitive approach to whatever child law matter our clients may be facing, aimed at helping them to protect, maintain and promote the welfare of their children both in the present and in the future.
Whether you wish to protect your assets or ensure you’re adequately provided for, prenuptial agreements are a prudent, and increasingly common, way for couples to clearly set out, before their marriage, how matters should be dealt with in the event of their separation or divorce. We regularly assist our clients to negotiate and prepare comprehensive and thorough prenuptial agreements that can help avoid costly disputes in the future.
We recognise that our clients’ best interests are usually served by resolving disputes without resorting to litigation. We advise on all aspects of Alternative Dispute Resolution including mediation, collaboration and arbitration. Jacqueline Stroud, our Family Law partner, is not only an accredited family law specialist but also a trained mediator and collaborative lawyer.
While we make every effort to avoid resolving issues through the courts, if court action is unavoidable, our effective and experienced family law litigators fight tirelessly on our clients’ behalf throughout the entire process.
