Divorce proceedings

When initiating or responding to the divorce application, it is essential to have the right legal advice and support to ensure all the appropriate paperwork is completed and submitted promptly. To keep the divorce process running smoothly, avoiding the risk of unnecessary delays or conflict, consult our family team.

Our divorce solicitors can assist with matters including:

  • Completing and filing divorce petitions
  • Responding to divorce petitions
  • Civil partnership dissolution

Separation agreements

For couples who are not married or in a civil partnership, or who do not wish to get divorced due to religious, cultural, or other personal reasons, a formal separation may be the right option. A separation agreement can allow you to set out terms you are both happy with for the division of finances, children, and other key matters, allowing you to start living independent lives.

Our family lawyers can assist with matters including:

  • Negotiating separation agreements
  • Varying the terms of separation agreements
  • Disputes over separation agreements

Divorce finances

The division of assets during divorce can be both technically complicated and highly emotive, especially when it comes to issues around the family home. Having the right legal support from the outset can help to ensure that you get a settlement that matches your needs and those of any children, now and for the future.

Our divorce finance lawyers can assist with matters including:

  • Financial matters on divorce- including providing guidance in relation to property, and assets such as pensions. We will assess whether a formal pension report is needed, given the circumstances of your case
  • Financial provision for children
  • Spousal maintenance

Arrangements for children

Protecting children’s wellbeing should always be the top consideration when navigating a divorce or separation.

Our family lawyers can assist with matters including:

  • Who the children will live with
  • How much time they spend with each parent
  • Changing children’s surnames
  • Taking children abroad after divorce or separation

Pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements

With more people marrying later in life and often remarrying, pre-nuptial agreements are becoming increasingly common. They can provide certainty over each spouse’s rights and help things to go more smoothly if the relationship breaks down. Post-nuptial agreements offer the same benefits but can be set up at any time during a marriage.

Our family law solicitors can assist with matters including:

  • Negotiating pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements
  • Varying the terms of pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements
  • The application of pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements during divorce

Cohabitation agreements

Most couples live together before getting married, with a growing number choosing to forgo marriage altogether. What many do not realise is that they have no automatic legal right to each other’s property and assets if they separate. A cohabitation agreement can allow an unmarried couple to agree on what each of them is entitled to, providing clarity in the event of a separation.

Our family law solicitors can assist with matters including:

  • Negotiating cohabitation agreements
  • Varying the terms of cohabitation agreements
  • The application of cohabitation agreements during separation

Advice from our Head of Divorce and Family Law

Nadine Moaddel, Head of Divorce and Family Law, Mancini Legal

The breakdown of any relationship is challenging, no matter what stage of life you are at. If you have children together or are uncertain how to split your finances fairly, it can be tricky to navigate the next steps.

You may have the best intentions to keep things as amicable as possible, which can become difficult when you are dealing with the emotions that come following a relationship breakdown. It’s normal to find it difficult to adjust to a new way of life, contemplating your financial situation in the long term.

Having a knowledgeable advocate by your side is essential. You will need a lawyer that takes the time to understand your individual circumstances. Family law matters are sensitive in nature, and we are entrusted to look after financial affairs as well as arrangements surrounding children.

At Mancini Legal, we never lose sight of that, and we work tirelessly to ensure that we achieve the best outcome for you.

Financial matters on divorce are predicated by ‘fairness’ and having a lawyer that balances that against your individual circumstances, is vital. Our family team are approachable and committed to resolving matters amicably. If court proceedings do become necessary, we will fight your corner until matters have been resolved.
