Family Law

Going through a separation, considering a divorce or need assistance with a child custody matter? The family law specialists at Bennett Carroll Solicitors are here to help. 

Family law matters are a difficult time for everyone involved, especially children, but it is possible to make this difficult time easier for all of you, starting by receiving expert legal advice that empowers you to understand where you stand and the options available to you. 

When a relationship falls apart, a strategy for change that considers the well-being of everyone involved needs to be put in place. This strategy could involve family law mediators helping to resolve a child custody dispute and avoid using family law courts, or it could involve expediting the final steps of the divorce, like spouse maintenance and property settlement.

Family Law Advice

Unsure what your options are when separating or seeking a divorce? 

In this series of short videos, Warren Tegg explains the process of seeking a divorce, time frames, choosing a lawyer, keeping in control of the costs and the importance of reaching an agreement that both parties can live with and enables you both to move on with your lives.  

Thinking of mediation?

There is always an opportunity to use family law mediators to help you examine the options that are available to you. Mediation is an important part of the process, can help to reach a compromise and is most effective once both parties have been advised by family law lawyers.
