About family law in Benfleet

Nobody enters into divorce or separation proceedings lightly – especially if there are children involved. However, if you decide to divorce it pays to have high-quality and reputable legal representation.

Family law governs the way in which marriages are brought to an end in the UK and cover key issues such as the disposal of assets, child care arrangement, custody, visitation rights, maintenance and other financial provisions. Recent changes to the law make it easier to initiate a separation without assigning blame. Even so, whether you’re involved in an amicable split or have ongoing disputes with your partner having an expert solicitor on your side will protect your rights and help you achieve the best possible outcome for everyone involved.

Arrangements for children

When couples separate, children often find themselves caught in the middle. Whatever the terms on which you separate it is essential that provisions are made to protect their best interests. At Hook and Partners, we are committed to making sure all our clients have expert and compassionate support to manage all children’s arrangements.

Our team includes specialist family law solicitors in Benfleet as well as a specialist and accredited child mediator and consultant. By working with everyone involved in the process including yourself, your spouse and children, we work to help you find a fair and equitable resolution that will help you move forward as a family.

Although everyone wants to reach a fair and amicable resolution, sometimes that’s not possible, especially when emotions are running high. With family mediation, we can create a safe space to reach an agreement with support from our specialist family law mediators.

Manjit Gill, our Specialist Accredited Mediator/Child Inclusive Mediator can help people sort out issues such as child custody, separation of assets and keeping costs to a minimum.
