Family and Children

Family and Children

Life does not always turn out the way we plan. No family or relationship is immune to a breakdown. When the worst happens the best you can hope for is to avoid a traumatic and lengthy legal process – particularly when children are involved.

We have a team of lawyers with very wide experience in Family Law, all of whom recognise how difficult relationship breakdown can be and aim to provide you with specialist legal advice as well as support to deal with the consequences of relationship breakdown.

Our ultimate aim is to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients in the most cost effective and timely fashion.

Susan Knight, Claire Parsons, Charlotte Youdan and Helen Evennett are all members of Resolution, formerly the Solicitors Family Law Association. Charlotte Youdan is a member of the Law Society Childrens’ Panel and has been appointed a Recorder. Susan Knight is a trained Collaborative Lawyer and Claire Parsons is a trained mediator. Helen Evennett specialises in Financial and Children cases.

Our clients come from a wide range of backgrounds, mainly by personal referral. We have considerable experience in dealing with matrimonial breakdown including high net assets, family companies and pensions. Charlotte Youdan and Helen Evennett have extensive experience in child care cases, and Charlotte Youdan’s clients are mainly Guardians representing young children. Claire Parsons has a thriving mediation practice.

Our services include: divorce and dissolution of civil partnerships; finance, property and pension division following divorce and dissolution of civil partnerships; pre-nuptial and cohabitation agreements;  financial matters;  children; deed of separation;  cohabitee cases; pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements; parenting agreements; arrangements for children and court proceedings relating to children; care proceedings and injunction proceedings.

We try to avoid unnecessary costly legal proceedings for our clients, partly to preserve the family’s assets and partly to help preserve relations. Legal arguments over finance and children tend not to bring out the best in people. Of course, if legal proceedings become necessary we are skilled at conducting them.

We have a range of alternative options to avoid taking cases to court. These include Collaborative Law and Mediation.
