Our family law services in Hull
Divorce and separation advice
Going through a divorce or separation can be an upsetting life circumstance, with many different aspects to consider during the process. A solicitor can guide you smoothly through the process from start to finish.
Our family law solicitors in Hull understand that divorce and separation can often affect your mental health and your family. We strive to provide a supportive service that removes the stress and allows you to focus on other aspects of your life and move forward. Our team will guide you through the application process, ensuring everything is done correctly, and there are no delays.
Civil Partnership advice
Should your relationship have come to an unfortunate end, the process of dissolving your civil partnership follows that of a divorce. Our solicitors will provide the utmost sensitivity throughout, ensuring you receive sound legal advice and guidance, guiding you expertly through the civil partnership dissolution process.
During divorce, dissolution or separation, the division of finances can often be the most contentious aspect of the process, with ex-partners often in disagreement for how assets will be divided and who is entitled to what.
Our solicitors have a wealth of expertise assisting clients from all backgrounds through the division of assets, including more complex and higher-net-worth matters. Where appropriate we will encourage our clients to attempt negotiation and mediation, but should a financial settlement order be best suited, we have a strong track record for success and will assist you in preparations and representation.
Children and parenting arrangements
During divorce or dissolution, there are often disagreements about children, for instance, where they will live, their upbringing and contact with each parent. Maintaining co-parenting and child-parent relationships is crucial, so seeking legal assistance at the earliest opportunity is highly recommended.
Our solicitors understand how important your children are and strive to find an outcome that best suits you. We encourage parents to find amicable agreements through out-of-court approaches, including negotiation and mediation. Should a child arrangement order be necessary we will support you through court proceedings with our expert representation.
Pre Nuptial Agreements
Getting married is an exciting time for a couple but it is wise to be aware that marriage financially links you. A prenuptial agreement or a prenup can be put in place to state each party’s financial position and how the division of assets would occur during divorce.
Our solicitors have years of collective expertise assisting clients with drafting robust prenuptial agreements which are accepted by the court and can protect you financially should your relationship unfortunately break down.
Post Nuptial Agreements
A post nuptial agreement, sometimes referred to as a postnup, is an agreement made once you are married.
Our solicitors in Hull can support you with drafting a prenuptial agreement that is in your best interest, we will clearly state your financial position and determine how finances will be divided during divorce. Should you be served a postnup, we will thoroughly review it and negotiate with your spouse if necessary.
The next step of a relationship is often moving in together, but it’s crucial for unmarried couples to be aware of the liabilities this can present them should the relationship break down in the future. Unmarried couples do not have the same rights as married couples, yet a cohabitation agreement can be put in place to protect your rights.
Our solicitors in Hull can provide assistance with drafting a sound cohabitation agreement that clearly states your financial position, how assets will be split should you separate, as well as how bills will be paid during the relationship. We can also assist with reviewing and negotiating should you be presented with an agreement from your partner.
For all types of reasons, separating individuals may not wish to seek a divorce or dissolution. But fortunately it is possible to get a legal separation which will determine how your finances will be split, as well as make arrangements for children.
Our solicitors can support you through drafting a robust separation agreement that best suits your circumstances and protects your interests. We can also support you where you have been served a separation agreement, through reviewing the document and participating in negotiations.
Sadly domestic abuse comes in many forms. Should you or a loved one be a victim of domestic abuse, there are laws to protect you and a solicitor can provide the support you require and help to safeguard you.
At Rollits Solicitors, you and your family’s welfare and protection is at the heart of what we do. We will support you with applying to court for an injunction to prevent your abuser from coming into contact with you and your loved ones.
Inheritance Act claims
Being left out of an inheritance or not receiving an amount you suspected can be a difficult and emotional situation. Fortunately, the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act can assist individuals in such circumstances, should you be eligible.
We recognise that an inheritance act claim may be a sensitive subject on top of your grief, during our service we will provide close personal support with sound advice and guidance through the claims process.
At Rollits, our expert family law team includes mediators who have years of expertise assisting clients through mediation. We have been supporting clients since 1994 using family mediation, helping to find amicable solutions and maintaining relationships where possible.
Family Collaborative Law
Family court can understandably be a daunting prospect, but not all family law matters require court, instead they can be quickly and efficiently resolved through alternative dispute resolution, such as family collaborative law which helps clients resolve their issues in a ‘round the table’ meeting setting.
At Rollits, we recognise the importance of collaborative law and for this reason, some members of the team, including Karen Myles and Alison Benson are trained collaborative lawyers.
