Robertsons can help in the following areas of family law:
Divorce & Separation
Divorce is surely one of the most painful and stressful processes that an individual will endure and it is essential that you have the right advice and support in place. We can help. If the marriage or civil partnership has broken down then we are able to guide you through the process.
If you are not considering a divorce or dissolution but wish for some finality then you may consider a separation agreement. This agreement ensures that financial and children matters are resolved before legal divorce proceedings. This often means that the divorce itself becomes a less stressful process for those going through it. A separation agreement formally sets these details out and is written to accommodate your needs as much as possible.

Cases involving Children
Children are perhaps the most emotive areas of our lives. This affects not only the adults involved, but of course the children themselves. Robertsons Solicitors are widely experienced in matters of law relating to children including child arrangements orders and child maintenance.
Whether married, separated, co-habiting or in a civil partnership, it is essential that you find the right advice and support you need when any issue relating to children becomes contentious or requires legal input.

12% of the population in England and Wales live together before (if ever) getting married. A pre-written agreement will ensure that in the event of a split, the pressure and stress is eased significantly by agreeing upfront the split of possessions and assets. Alternatively, you may find yourself in a position where you are ending a relationship following cohabitation with your partner and you are unsure of your rights with the division of property and assets.

Child Care Law
If the Local Authority are considering care proceedings then you will want to speak to one of our accrediated solicitors as soon as possible. We can help with adoption matters, supervision and care orders.
This area of work is covered by Legal Aid so if the Local Authority are convening a child protection conference or have started court proceedings then contact us as soon as you can.

We would all like to think that this could never happen to us, but the harsh reality is that it can. It can happen at any stage of a relationship and in any kind of relationship. It isn’t restricted to women as commonly thought. REFUGE define domestic violence as the abuse of one partner within an intimate or family relationship.
The abuse can be mental, physical, sexual or financial. Many people experiencing domestic abuse do nothing about it because they are paralysed by fear of what may happen if and when the abuser finds out. But until they speak to us – we cannot help.
If you, or someone you know is in an abusive situation, please contact us as soon as possible. We will meet in complete confidentiality and only act upon your explicit instructions.
