Separation and divorce solicitors
Separation and divorce is exceptionally stressful at any stage of your life. You may be worried about your future, particularly when children are involved and the financial implications when separating. However complicated your situation is, we are here to support you.
There is no negotiation more difficult than those surrounding children. At RWK Goodman, our approach is to help separating parents put their children’s needs first, achieving the best result for you and your children, quickly and sensitively whilst avoiding any unnecessary court action.
International family law
There has been a rise in families moving and marrying abroad. In the event of a relationship breakdown, complications may arise due to the differences in family law between two or more countries. Those issues may involve cross jurisdictional divorces, financial settlements, and the international movement of children. It is important to seek advice at an early stage as timing can become crucial. Our specialist international family law team are here to assist you.
Domestic abuse solicitors
If you find yourself in an abusive relationship it can be extremely hard to find a way out. If you or a member of your family are a victim of domestic abuse it is important that you contact our team today.
Family mediation services
We believe it is almost always best to keep family disputes out of the courts. We avoid the expense, delay and stress of contested court proceedings wherever possible.
Cohabitees and financial provision for unmarried couples
Choosing to live with your partner outside of marriage is becoming increasingly common. However it is important to understand this does not provide you with the same level of legal protection as marriage. If disagreements arise around financial assets or children, a legally binding cohabitation agreement helps provide clarity. We are also able to assist with applications under Schedule 1 of the Children Act 1989.
Pre and Post-Nuptial Agreements
We have seen an increase in the number of couples entering into pre-nuptial agreements (prior to the marriage) and post- nuptial agreements (during the marriage) as a way of protecting their assets in the event of permanent separation. We understand that entering into such agreements can be a sensitive issue and we are here to advise you on your specific requirements.
Injunctions and emergency remedies
There are various types of injunctions and emergency remedies that can be applied for in relation to family issues. Our team are well placed to issue court proceedings in an emergency. We understand the need to act quickly often in frightening and difficult times.
