Getting married this year?

Getting married is an exciting time but it is wise to take some time to think about important aspects such as finances and property. You may wish to consider a pre-nuptial agreement which sets out the ownership of assets. We offer a specialised consultation for initial advice on pre-nuptial agreements.

After marriage, you may consider creating a joint Will or individual Wills now that the majority of your finances and assets will be combined.

Many people are not aware that getting married automatically invalidates your Will unless appropriate steps have been taken. No one likes to think about their own demise, but ensuring your final wishes are made clear and legally recognised is the perfect way to protect your loved ones from unnecessary stress.

Divorce and Relationship Changes

For some the New Year will mean making difficult decisions about their relationship.

When a marriage or partnership breaks down it can be one of the most traumatic and emotional times in a person’s life. It can be difficult to know where to begin and there may be many unanswered questions emotionally and practically. Many people considering a divorce are concerned how it will affect their children, finances and home and are unsure what options they have or how the divorce process works.

Our family law team offer an initial meeting to talk to one of our highly qualified solicitors for initial advice for just £150 + VAT.
