Children disputes

It is important to consider your children during a separation or divorce. Where children will live, maintenance payments, parental rights and child care all need to be considered by both parties.

Cohabitation and civil partnerships

It is becoming more popular for couples to hold off getting married and just live together instead. If you are currently living with a partner but you aren't married it is important for you to consider a cohabitation agreement. This agreement will give you protection should your relationship dissolve, and the solicitors at Mason & Co Solicitors can draw up this agreement with you. Civil partnerships allow same sex couples to have similar rights to married couples. We can talk you through the available options for you and whether a civil partnership would be suitable for you and your partner.

Prenuptial agreements

Before entering into your marriage or civil partnership a prenuptial agreement can be drawn up by Mason & Co Solicitors. Taking into consideration the needs of each party as each prenuptial agreement will differ from couple to couple, the agreement will encompass many things including property and finances, and who should get what should the marriage or civil partnership break down. It is important to note that although a prenuptial agreement is not a legally binding document it can be taken into consideration should either of you be taken to court during divorce.

Our family law solicitors will guide you through the court process of acquiring an injunction, fully explaining an injunction before anything begins.
