What is family law?

Family law solicitors work on disputes including divorce, separation, child adoption, custody, distribution of assets, visitation rights, and much more. They are there to settle all disputes as amicably as possible and protect your rights.

Recent changes to the law have made the divorce process faster and potentially easier. The introduction of the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020 provides for joint applications or a statement of irretrievable breakdown. Most importantly, it allows one party to start the process without having to assign blame.

Even so, this will be one of the most distressing experiences anyone can go through. With emotions running high, navigating the complex legal issues of separation can be difficult. This is where Hook and Partners come in. Our family law lawyers can guide you through every step of the way offering expert advice and protecting your interests.

Children’s arrangements

Parenting when living together can be tough. When you’re separated it can be even worse, especially after an acrimonious split. It can be emotionally exhausting and present a host of new problems. At Hook Partners we can be by your side, protecting your interests and guiding you through every step of the way from arranging making childcare arrangements, sorting out disputes, and deciding with whom children spend their time. Our specialist team includes a family solicitor and an accredited specialist family mediator/child consultant who will help you protect the interests of the child. Our aim is to provide advice, resolve disputes and try to avoid cases going to court.

Financial remedy

Divorce carries a host of complex financial issues many of which can last many years after separation. A divorce only deals with the end of a marriage. Financial claims can remain intact which means a spouse could make a claim against you at any time in the future. Untangling these financial issues can be daunting and complicated.

To avoid ongoing disputes, we work with you to secure a satisfactory financial remedy, which works for all sides and avoids costly, lengthy, and upsetting court proceedings.

This could include a financial remedy order, known as a consent order, that can dismiss a spouse’s claims against you. This is a legally binding decision between you and your partner about how you will divide your assets and wealth when your marriage ends and can cover issues such as:

    • Rights to property
    • Savings
    • Shares
    • Pensions
    • Any international assets
    • Liabilities for debts
    • Child arrangements/child maintenance.

    There is no one size fits all solution for these financial remedy orders, and you will not necessarily have to go to court in order to reach a settlement. Our professional team of solicitors can help you reach a solution through mediation or collaboration. Our team involves an accredited family law solicitor and mediator who can help you reach a swift resolution.
