Our family lawyers based in Dundee and Perth can offer advice to people facing matrimonial problems or family breakdown. This applies whether you are experiencing difficulties with your husband or wife, civil partner or cohabitee. You may also be facing problems relating to who your children live with or what Child Support or maintenance (sometimes referred to as aliment or alimony) you are receiving for them.
The law regulates various issues which can arise within families. Many clients wish to consult a family law solicitor before they make any major decision. You may have concerns about who would have custody of your children (known legally as “residence”) or how much access (“contact”) you would have to them if you separated from your partner. You may also be concerned about your parental rights. You might also be worried about the financial implications of separation or divorce for example whether you can afford to stay in your current house and what entitlement you have to property, savings or pensions, even if they are in your spouse’s sole name. We can advise you on your rights on separation and the options open to you.
Whatever your particular concerns, our team of family law solicitors will listen, advise and assist you in coming to a decision which suits your individual circumstances.
