Our award-winning team of family lawyers based in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and East Lothian help clients find the most beneficial outcomes for themselves and families, often in difficult circumstances.
They understand the realities of contemporary family life, involving, for example:
- same-sex couples
- civil partners
Whilst issues such as relationship breakdown are common to all families, some family structures may lead to differing financial consequences if the relationship ends. Therefore, it is important to get legal advice tailored to your own circumstances.
Relationship beginnings and endings
As well as helping families achieve the best possible outcome for their present circumstances, we can minimise the likelihood of future problems.
At the start of a relationship, you may not consider the possibility of separation, but marriage, civil partnership and cohabitation all create legal rights and obligations. By making a prenuptial or cohabitation agreement, for example, you can prevent legal disputes about those rights and obligations in the future.
Using collaborative law in separation and divorce
In our work with families, we are seeing increasing demand for collaborative law - a process of negotiation with an emphasis on direct and constructive communication to resolve issues arising during separation and divorce. This can be especially effective for working out future co-parenting relationships.
