Services For You
Family & Matrimonial Law
Talk to us – we can help!
The breakdown of a relationship can be extremely painful for all concerned and these stresses can be heightened when assets, finances or access to children are involved. The specialist family law team at Larcomes Solicitors realise we can’t take away the pain, but we are on hand to find the right solution for your situation, delivering sensitive but pragmatic legal advice.
We understand that family law issues are complex and stressful and this is why we provide a supportive and caring approach. Our focus is to help you find a solution that works for you and your family, whether through negotiation, mediation or court proceedings. Most cases are resolved without contested court proceedings, although when court proceedings are necessary the court timetable will ensure resolution with the court imposing a final settlement. We will support and advise, and you will make the decisions.
Whether you are thinking about a divorce or separation, or want advice in relation to children matters, financial settlements within divorce or any other family matter, our team of family specialists can help.
