read more › As a specialist in civil partnerships in Bristol, Clevedon & Portishead, Harbour Family Law can guide you through the dissolution process, resolving all financial claims.

Alongside the dissolution proceedings you should also consider a financial settlement, which will resolve all financial claims between the two of you.

read more › If you are intending to move in with your partner or you are already living with them our Cohabitation Lawyers in Bristol, Clevedon & Portishead can help. The necessity of marriage in the path of adult relationships is something of the past. Unmarried couples are more and more frequently choosing to move in or buy a property together without any of the formal or legally binding commitments that marriage provides. Living together agreements are an increasingly popular option couples can opt for when they want to make sure they are protected in the event of separation - but aren't yet ready or wanting to get married.

read more › You and your spouse, partner or civil partner may have assets - property, savings, investments, pensions - which will need to be considered upon your separation. You may own a business either on your own, with others, or together with your spouse or partner. How will these be divided? What is fair? What should you do to protect yourself? The starting point for trying to decide how these assets should be dealt with is by finding out exactly what the assets are and how much they are worth. You may need to obtain independent valuations for some of your assets, such as property or pensions.

read more › If you are separating from your husband or wife or civil partner, but do not feel that you can begin the formal process of divorce or civil dissolution. This would confirm the financial agreement you have reached at the point of separation and indicate that you intend to start the divorce or dissolution at some point in the future (usually once you have been separated for 2 years). This can then provide some financial certainty for you, whilst you come to terms with the breakdown of your marriage or civil partnership.

read more › If you're a parent that is separating from the partner you need to put your children first. We cover children issues in Bristol, Clevedon & Portishead. Divorce or separation can be particularly difficult when you are also a parent. There are lots of things to consider when trying to make arrangements for the children between the two of you and deciding what is 'reasonable'. Often, more than finances and your own living arrangements, it is the future of your child that keeps you up at night. How will the separation affect them?

read more › If you have been harmed or threatened with physical violence you may appeal for injunctions. Our Injuctions Solicitors in Bristol, Clevedon & Portishead can provide fast and efficient advice. However, we may be able to apply for an order against anyone in your family, or with whom you have had a close relationship, who has used violence against you. You can also seek protection for your child. An injunction is a court order that a named person should or should not do something. Usually, in family law, people want injunctions against a husband, wife or partner.

read more › If you are planning to marry your partner, you may wish to consider a Pre-nuptial Agreement. Our solicitors in Bristol, Clevedon & Portishead can assist you with this. These agreements can give you peace of mind in terms of your assets and finances, particularly if one partner has significantly more than the other. They can also save you from challenging negotiations or court proceedings in the event of a later separation. If you wish for the best chance of a prenup being upheld later, it is vital that you and your partner seek legal advice before committing to any agreement.

read more › If you are already married or in a civil partnership, you may wish to consider a post-nuptial agreement. Our Post-Nuptial Agreement lawyers in Bristol, Clevedon & Portishead can help. This would be an agreement reached between the two of you as to what should happen with your finances should your marriage or civil partnership break down in the future. You may have already had a pre-nuptial agreement and wish to mirror this with a post-nuptial agreement to further solidify your intentions in this regard.

read more › There are many different ways in which to resolve a dispute between separating or divorcing couples. Some couples are able to agree things between themselves, the so called 'kitchen table agreements'. If this has been possible, you should then seek legal advice on the agreement reached and to obtain a legally binding document which reflects that agreement. You can attend mediation - where you both meet with an independent mediator to help you reach an agreement. You will discuss your situation with the mediator and your ex-spouse or partner and hopefully agree a way forward.

From the start, right through to conclusion, Katy was kind, supportive, informative and professional. Any queries or concerns I had were always promptly dealt with and I felt fully supported by Katy and her team. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
