Inverness Based Family Law Solicitors serving the Highlands
The rules of family law are complex. Our team of family solicitors will provide detailed guidance on the relevant legislation and its impact on different kinds of family relationships.
We offer a wide range of legal services in respect of family law. These include:
Separation and Divorce
In most cases, disagreements between spouses or partners can be resolved. But, sometimes, a family solicitor is needed to reach a resolution.
Our family law team is highly experienced and will offer specialist advice in respect of separation, divorce and the dissolution of civil partnerships.
Our family solicitors have a wealth of knowledge and experience in handling the adoption of a child. Our team will work with you closely, provide detailed advice, and ensure you’re supported throughout the entire adoption process.
Maintenance and Financial Claims
When facing a separation or divorce, it’s vital to carefully consider how finances, property and the needs of your children are to be shared.
Our team will advise you of the rights and obligations owed by yourself and by your partner. They will also explain the different options as to how these responsibilities can be fulfilled by each individual.
Our family solicitors can:
- represent your interests in negotiations with your spouse or partner
- draft legally binding agreements detailing the terms of any settlement you come to
- represent your interests in court.
Residential and Contact Arrangements for Children
If you decide to separate or divorce, it’s unavoidable that there’ll also be consequences for your children. We’ll help you in the negotiation of these arrangements. Where an agreement cannot be reached, we can raise or defend court actions as necessary.
Our team of family solicitors are vastly experienced in disputes about child contact and residence. They’ll aim to make a difficult time as smooth for you as possible.
Prenuptial and Cohabitation Agreements
Whether before a marriage or before starting to live together, our family law team are experienced in drawing up agreements that outline what will happen if a relationship comes to an end. These types of agreements are becoming more common where one party is providing a larger deposit for a property than the other, or where a gift from one party’s family member is being used.
Interdicts, Powers of Arrest & Exclusion Orders
If you’re subject to harassment or abusive behaviour, we’ll provide you with urgent and effective advice. This can include orders to prevent others from entering your home.
