FAMILY

If your relationship has broken down and you are unable to agree how to resolve matters with your former partner whether you are married, cohabiting or in a civil partnership, MKB Solicitors LLP can arrange a package of support and advice for your needs and offer you a range of fixed fee packages to enable you to bring matters to a conclusion.

We understand that when a relationship or marriage breaks down it can be extremely stressful and make it difficult for you to make decisions for you and your family.  We have specialist solicitors who can offer you the support and advice that you may need.

Our mediators are experienced family law solicitors, therefore they have an inbuilt, in-depth, knowledge of family law.  Non legally qualified mediators are entitled to call themselves mediators but they will not have the specialised in-depth knowledge that a family lawyer will have of family law and the Court process.  At MKB Solicitors LLP we have two specialist family law solicitors who are qualified mediators. Please see our website mediation page for details of our mediation services and collaborative law services.

To ensure that you are obtaining the best specialist advice possible our solicitors are members of Resolution and the appropriate Law Society specialist panels and are assessed by the Law Society as having a significant degree of experience and expertise in specific areas of family law.   We can provide specialist advice in the following areas of law:-

  • Children
  • Divorce
  • Domestic Violence
  • Financial settlements including:
    • Properties
    • Pensions
    • Maintenance
    • Injunctions to preserve assets/prevent assets being dealt with in order to defend your claim against them
    • Business assets.
  • Trusts
  • Separation Agreements 

 

We ensure that your family lawyer is specialised in the area of family law that you need advice in.   We have specialist solicitors to provide you with the expert advice that you need.   One family lawyer may cover all areas of family law but as family law is probably the widest area of law in this country, you need a specialist in the particular area that you have problems in.

At MKB Solicitors LLP two solicitors may work for the same client if, for example, you have children matters to resolve and then financial issues.   This means that you receive specialist advice from the start, very often limiting the need to instruct a Barrister and thereby ensuring significant cost savings.

At MKB Solicitors LLP we only employ qualified family solicitors, we do not employ clerks or paralegals to supply family law advice.   You can always be assured therefore that you are receiving expert advice.

We will always explain the process with you in any particular situation and keep you informed.  We try to help you resolve a dispute as amicably as possible and in the most cost effective way possible.
