Divorce can be a complicated business. We understand that emotions are high during this trying time, and strive to make the experience as straightforward as possible. If you have any questions about the initial process, feel free to contact us for a 30 minute consultation at no cost.

What We Can Help You With

We understand that several aspects hang in the balance, including children, property, and finances.

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements

Prenuptial agreements are entered into prior to the marriage. A postnuptial is an agreement entered into when the couple is already married. Both outline what will transpire in the event of a divorce.
The divorce process itself is relatively straightforward. Disputes arise over arrangements of children and finances, and can sometimes escalate to court.
We can provide clarification on your agreements and their legal standing, as well as answer some common queries. Who will initiate the divorce? Will savings and pensions require equal division? Who keeps the house? Will someone pay child maintenance?
One of our helpful solicitors can also act as mediator between you and your partner, to ensure agreements are honoured and a fair conclusion is reached.

Cohabitation Disputes

Cohabitation couples are partners who share a residence, but who are not married or in any Civil Partnership. Despite the common law myth, these couples are treated very differently to married couples. The length of time in which two people share an abode will not be considered by the court in the case of separation, even if one of the parties assumed child-rearing duties. This means that there can be complications in the event of rights over property, children and the rights following death.
With the increasing expenditure of household living, more and more people are choosing to cohabit. The nature of their relationship can differ, and only gets more complex when children are involved. While unmarried couples are regarded less favourably by the court, there are still certain factors that could influence proceedings.
Milestone Solicitors can elucidate the process and negotiate on your behalf, to ensure that you receive the best settlement for your situation.

Injunctions and Domestic Violence

We understand that even the smallest step towards extricating yourself from a harmful home situation feels momentous. Our team is approachable and sensitive to this delicate issue, and will readily provide the support you need to find resolution as quickly and cleanly as possible.
If you’re struggling with an abusive partner, we’ll guide you towards taking the necessary legal action to exit the situation. We can also help you get an injunction against your offender. An injunction is an official legal order for a particular party to do or cease an activity. It will protect you and any children concerned from the offending party. Domestic injunctions are not limited to married or divorced couples. They can be obtained by unmarried couples or same sex couples who live together, as well as couples who don't live together.
