What is a family law solicitor?

Family law deals with legal issues relating to family relationships or disputes.

It covers a wide range of issues, from divorce, finances, and child custody to adoption, pre-nuptial agreements, and domestic violence. The main aim of family law is to resolve disputes involving families in a way that protects the rights and welfare of each family member, especially any children involved.

When it comes to relationships and family, most of us will readily assume that we can resolve our issues privately without the law becoming involved.

While we always encourage clients to tackle issues amicably, if possible, the reality is far more complicated than many of us would like to believe.

If you’re dealing with family law issue, you must seek the support and guidance of a specialist family law solicitor to ensure the best possible outcome for everybody affected.

What services do family law solicitors offer?

Here at Mark Reynolds Solicitors, we offer diverse legal services related to family law and matrimonial problems from our offices at Liverpool, Leigh, Runcorn and Warrington.

Our expertise covers everything from divorce proceedings and financial disputes to child custody arrangements and protection from domestic violence. Our specialist team is skilled in these matters.

We understand the sensitive nature of our work, and we consistently aim to provide the best possible service to our customers to achieve favourable outcomes.

We are, after all, family law solicitors; as such, we know what it means to be part of a family. We understand the difficulty and emotional distress caused as a result of a relationship breakdown.

Our family law department deals with the following areas of law:

  • Divorce and financial matters– Whether you need help initiating or responding to divorce proceedings, we offer clear, concise and sensitive advice for handling finances, property, or children when a marriage breaks down
  • Civil partnerships – Civil partners now have the same legal rights and responsibilities as opposite-sex married couples. We can help with pre-partnership agreements and civil partnership dissolution.
  • Child arrangements – Family disputes can have a significant emotional impact on children. We are committed to resolving child custody issues as amicably as possible, always putting the children’s best interests first.
  • Grandparents’ and relatives’ rights – The law recognises that grandparents and relatives can play an invaluable role in children’s lives. We help relatives, like grandparents, gain access to see children in their family.
  • Domestic violence – We offer expert legal advice and protection for victims of violence, controlling behaviour, or harassment.
  • Change of name – If you wish to change your own or your child’s name, we can help you do so quickly and easily using a Change of Name Deed or a Statutory Declaration.
  • Judicial separation – A judicial separation allows a married couple to legally separate without getting a divorce.
  • Parental responsibility – If you do not have parental responsibility and wish to obtain it, we can help you apply for an appropriate court order.
  • Pre-nuptial/pre-cohabitation agreements – We can help you draw up an agreement at the beginning of a marriage, relationship, or civil partnership, detailing what will happen with finances, property, and children if your relationship comes to an end.
  • Mediation – We offer advice on mediation sessions, helping families negotiate disputes and work through issues in a structured and constructive environment, with the aim of resolving family matters without going to court.

Our main aim is to resolve the issues brought before us outside of the court through careful and diplomatic negotiations and discussions.

This approach lets us minimise the stress and cost to you and ends your dispute as quickly as possible.

However, should these attempts at reaching an agreement by way of conversation fail to resolve the dispute, you can rest easy knowing that we work just as well in court as outside of it.
