Family Law

Realising that a long term relationship has ended can be a very emotional time and many issues can arise out of a divorce. The end of a relationship can leave people very isolated and feeling confused.

In today’s modern world there is no such thing as an ‘average’ family or ‘normal’ relationship. You may be married, living together, or separated. Children, step-children or adopted children are perhaps living with you or living elsewhere. Whatever your situation, relationships can sometimes break down and that’s when turning to a family solicitor can really help you to resolve difficulties quickly.

Double and Megson are here to help make things easier. We’ll work hard to get to know you and understand your own unique situation so that we can help you resolve whatever issues you are facing, allowing you to start planning for a happier future.

Our family law solicitors have in-depth knowledge of all aspects of family law and provide sympathetic legal advice to ensure that the practical implications of any relationship break-up are dealt with properly. We can advise on financial and property matters but we never lose sight of the fact that although practical issues need to be resolved, feelings and emotions are just as important.

At Double and Megson we use plain English – not legal jargon. We’ll explain everything in a way that’s clear and easy to understand.

If children are involved, we know that your priority will be to ensure their welfare and we’ll provide complete support to help you do this. If situations arise where children may be at risk, we’ll work quickly to protect them. Our family law solicitors are experts in dealing with a wide range of disputes involving children.

One way of resolving relationship difficulties is through mediation. Mediation is a recognised process where the people involved in a dispute can come together with a trained relationship expert who takes on the role of mediator and will help you reach an agreement. Double and Megson can facilitate an expert mediation service that can often help avoid more lengthy or complex legal cases.

Our main areas of expertise are:

  • Divorce
  • Separation agreements
  • Financial implications of marriage breakdown
  • Pre-nuptial agreements
  • Cohabitation issues
