Relationships

Whether you are wanting to lay down foundations for a new relationship or you are going through the difficult decision of separating from your partner, we can help. We offer expert advice about legal disputes within a relationship, marriage or civil partnership. We also have an excellent Client Care Manager to help victims of domestic abuse or forced marriage.


Are you looking at getting married or having a civil partnership in the near future but would like to consider protecting both parties assets with a pre-nuptial agreement? We can advise you.

Have you separated from your partner and would like to know where you stand in respect of your children. We have an experienced team of lawyers who can help advise you and ensure that the best possible outcome is obtained for both you and the children.

If you are experiencing domestic abuse, you may feel frightened or ashamed, but many people have been in your position. It is not your fault and you are not alone. There is help and support available throughout our region, from people who will believe you and who understand how devastating abuse can be. If you are living with abuse on a daily basis, it is hard to make sense of it, especially if it has got worse over time. Abusive partners are often charming and friendly at other times and might convince you that problems are your fault. The lower you feel, the more likely you are to blame yourself. Recognising that you are being abused is an important first step to understanding your relationship and making changes in your life.

We can apply for emergency protective orders such as injunctions or forced marriage protection orders and we have a 24 hour emergency line on 0845 450 5616, however if you are at immediate risk of harm always…always dial 999.

We can represent you for the following relationship matters:

Domestic Abuse

Domestic abuse is any abuse that happens in a family or personal relationship, where one person bullies or controls the other. The government defines domestic abuse as:- Any incident of threatening behaviour, violence or abuse (psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional) between adults who are or have been intimate partners or family members, regardless of gender or sexuality.

Forced Marriage

A forced marriage occurs when either or both parties have been pressured into marrying, without giving their consent and some element of duress is involved. Duress can involve physical and sexual abuse or may involve psychological and emotional pressure. For example family members may insist that rejection of the marriage may bring shame to the family; or arrangements for the marriage may be made without the intended bride/groom being told the purpose of the trip.
