Divorce, Separation and Financial Issues
Going through a divorce or separation can be a very difficult time for everybody involved. Our Family and Children Team have a wealth of experience and will deal with your case efficiently and sympathetically.
We can also provide you with realistic and sensible advice in relation to any financial issues arising out of your divorce or separation.

- Dissolution of Civil Partnerships
- Cohabitation Agreements and Separation
- Mediation of financial settlements
- Applications to Court to deal with financial settlement
- Applications for injunctions to freeze assets
- Applications to Court for maintenance
When agreements cannot be reached in relation to arrangements for children, it is important to have advice that is child-focused and aims at resolving conflict quickly.
Our experienced Family and Children Team can assist with all aspects of Children Law including:
- Removal of children from the Jurisdiction of the UK
- Parental Responsibility
- Prohibited Steps and Specific Issue applications
- Change of Name Deeds
- Private Adoptions
Care Proceeding and Social Services Concerns
If you are having difficulties dealing with social services, your children have been taken into care or they are subject to a Child Protection Agreement, we can help. Our Family and Children Team can provide you with robust support and advice throughout the process and will represent your interests at Court to ensure that your voice is heard.
If you are experiencing domestic violence or abuse, don’t suffer in silence. Talk to us as soon as possible so that we can help you obtain immediate protection for you and your children. We can ask the Court to make a Non-Molestation Order to prevent abuse or an Occupation Order to exclude the abuser from the family home for a period of time. In certain cases, it may be possible for us to make an emergency application to the Court the same day that you meet with us.
We do our best to offer same day appointments but would advise that if you are suffering any abuse, to always contact the Police first and report your concerns.
In April 2013, the Government made sweeping changes to the Legal Aid system which meant that some types of work were no longer eligible or were subject to restrictions. FPH Law will fully assess your case at the initial interview to check whether funding is available. A legal Aid calculator is available online for public use: www.gov.uk/check-legal-aid. Please note that the calculator only provides guidance on the availability of Legal Aid for your case. For a detailed assessment of your eligibility, call us today for an appointment.
