You may be at the beginning of a new relationship, or contemplating the consequences of the breakdown of a long marriage. There may be children involved or assets tied up in a family business.

HOW OUR FAMILY LAWYERS CAN HELP YOU 

Whatever your individual circumstances are, the situation can often get out of hand with friends and family proffering advice with the best of intentions.

However, every situation is different. To achieve the best outcome for you and your family, it’s very important to establish the facts early on and explore all your options. You may benefit from taking a less confrontational approach, using Collaborative Law or Family Mediation to find the best solution in your particular case.

Or you may simply be looking for advice about drafting a pre-nuptial agreement, the legal and financial implications of cohabitation or civil partnership.

In all cases, you will be looking for an adviser, who you can trust, with a reputation for being knowledgeable, practical and, importantly, sensitive – something Geldards Family team are well known for.

Our team is particularly well known for resolving complex financial disputes, liaising with other professional advisers and advising clients on divorce/separation involving multiple legal jurisdictions, sophisticated business structures and complex trusts.

All our senior Family lawyers are Resolution accredited specialists and we are represented on both the Law Society’s Children Panel and Family Mediation Panel.

Geldards also holds a Legal Aid Agency contract to undertake certain aspects legally aided work at our Ilkeston Office and Publicly Funded Family Mediation at Derby, Nottingham and Ilkeston, reflecting the quality and consistency of our service.  We are proud to deliver our Family services in Derby, Nottingham, Leicester, Ashbourne, Uttoxeter and throughout the East Midlands region.
