Life is full of ups and downs; you don’t always know what’s coming next. Nobody likes to think about sad things or things going wrong, but planning for those eventualities can help you to manage if/when they do. We understand the need for peace of mind when sorting out the legal affairs of either yourself or a loved one. It can be a stressful time, with emotions running high, and we can help to remove your anxiety and help you focus on getting the best result for you and your family.
We are proud to have a team that specialises in both private law disputes between parents as well as public law disputes where the local authority becomes involved with a family. Consequently, our team can assist parents with matters that affect them and their children. Our private law team can also assist with the outcomes following a relationship breakdown whether that be the breakdown of a marriage; civil partnership or cohabitating couples. Conversely, we can also help you plan for your marriage, with a prenuptial agreement and asset planning in the build-up to the big day.
With the largest family mediation team in Birmingham, we can help you to reach a functional outcome regarding children, property, finance, or other significant family matters. Our experience and expertise allow us to act as either your solicitor during the mediation process or as the family mediator for both parties.
Our wills and estate planning team will help you to consider what ‘sorting our your affairs’ means for you and any children or dependents. We are particularly aware that parents of children with disabilities or SEND may have additional factors that need to be taken into consideration when planning for the future and our team prides itself on being able to navigate those issues with the respect and dignity they deserve.
We can also support with preparing a lasting power of attorney (LPA), which enables you to appoint the people you trust the most to make decisions for you if you later lose the capacity to make those decisions for yourself. We can help guide you through the process, prepare the necessary documents, and support you in appointing the right attorney, clarifying the difference between the two main types of LPA; property and finance, and health and welfare.
Our friendly team of experts are based at our offices in central Birmingham and central Manchester. We’re here to help, guide and support you so please do get in touch if you need some initial advice. Call us on 0121 212 7417 or email [email protected].
