Family Law Solicitor Chris Brown talks divorce and separation

I work in Family and Matrimonial Law, and clients often come to me when they’ve experienced changes in family circumstances which they have experienced over a short, or even in some circumstances, a very long period of time.

In my role I am often discussing cohabitation agreements, separations and divorce arrangements with my clients, but I try to look at the whole situation and the individual circumstances and present all the options so my clients can choose the best solution.

I am an accredited ‘Specialist Family Lawyer’ and as a member of ‘Resolution’ I advocate using a non-confrontational approach - it can help take the pressure out of a highly charged situation and it helps when you are taking the needs of the whole family into consideration, especially the children.

I offer guidance to my clients around financial issues and arrangements with the children. Couples who separate often have to spend some time living together and this can be a difficult situation to manage. It helps that I have particular expertise in Child Arrangements Order proceedings and Complex Financial Remedies, so I am able to untangle even the most complicated situations.

I help my clients understand the legal processes and timings involved and can prepare the necessary financial agreement based on the decisions reached.

Of course every situation is unique and there isn’t anything I haven’t seen or heard before. When clients approach me it is often the first positive step they have taken in a difficult situation – and my focus always remains on achieving the best outcome possible.

If you have a situation you would like to discuss please call 01733 295 627 or email chris.brown@hegarty.co.uk
