protected with minimal intrusion to the future of your family
Our litigation unit has extensive experience and specialises in the full range of family legal matters including ante-nuptial agreements, divorce, maintenance issues, property settlements and matters related to minors.
Marriage signals a long-term commitment and there may be plenty of unromantic decisions to make in the course of your marriage. Without pre-nuptial agreements, the uncertainly of your financial set-up can cause underlying and long-term issues. It is better start with a plan so both of you are comfortable with how you stand for the future. Alongside ante-nuptial agreements, we recommend that couples consider our attorneys in drafting your wills to avoid additional stress and uncertainty whilst mourning the loss of your partner.
We understand the breakdown of a marriage is one of the most distressing moments in your life, thus our attorneys are committed to handle all matters tactically and with the utmost sensitivity in a non-confrontational and constructive way. Our attorneys are able to act on behalf of both parties concerned in divorce proceedings where it is clear at the inception of the matter that the parties will be able to reach an amicable settlement.
Financial and maintenance settlement negotiations may take place at a time when emotions are running high. Our attorneys are able to assist with structuring the most amicable settlement for all parties concerned by dealing with all other assets forming part of the matrimonial “pot”, such as pensions, cash savings or investments and vehicles.
