What is family law?

Family law is a legal practice area that deals with matters related to familial relationships and domestic affairs. It encompasses various issues such as divorce, child custody and support, adoption, paternity, and domestic violence. Family law solicitors assist clients in resolving these matters through negotiation, mediation, or litigation, ensuring their rights and interests are protected in family court proceedings.

What is divorce?

Divorce is a legal process that dissolves a marriage, ending the marital relationship between two individuals. It involves the termination of legal duties and responsibilities, such as property division, child custody, and financial support. Divorce can be initiated by one or both spouses and typically requires a court’s involvement to finalise the dissolution of the marriage. It can be emotionally challenging and complex, often necessitating the guidance of a knowledgeable family law solicitor.
