Divorce and Family

Experiencing a divorce or the breakdown of a relationship is a stressful time. It can have a profound impact on your life, giving rise to various issues that you will need to address. You will inevitably have a number of questions. What is the process for getting divorced and how long will it take? How will the property and assets be divided? Who will the children live with and how will we resolve issues of contact?

"I would recommend Mark Goldstein to anyone that asked as I found the process so much easier to deal than I thought it would be. Mark was very helpful and the outcome was super. He responded to any communication and always answered all my questions."

Our Divorce and Family department has over 30 years' experience advising a wide variety of clients, many of them high net worth individuals based both in the UK and overseas. We represent clients in a variety of industries including entertainment, finance and sport.

We have an unrivalled reputation for providing a professional and proactive service, and achieving outstanding results.

Financial issues, child arrangements and other issues

Our work covers the full range of divorce and family law issues including financial issues, child arrangements orders, and injunctions for domestic violence.

Pre-nuptial, post-nuptial and cohabitation agreements

Nobody likes to think that their marriage or civil partnership may one day come to an end, but it is sensible to consider the possibility that it may do so. Pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements are increasingly popular among couples who want to ensure that their individual assets are protected in the event the relationship breaks down. Similarly, cohabitation agreements are now common among unmarried couples.

We can assist you with the preparation of these agreements.

Resolution and mediation

Our family law team members belong to Resolution, an organisation of lawyers committed to adopting a constructive approach to family law. We adhere to Resolution's Code of Practice and where possible seek to achieve settlements by negotiation and without recourse to the courts.

We consider mediation at all stages of a divorce, in order to reduce the costs. We have the negotiating skills to ensure that if a settlement is agreed, it is on the most favourable terms possible for your circumstances.

Testimonials

"Mark Goldstein represented me in my divorce case over the past year and a half. As an Italian citizen dealing with the British courts I required an attorney I could rely on completely. Mark was warm and personable and patient in walking me through the various steps required. He has a fine legal mind and is honest, hardworking and was consistently well prepared and innovative in his legal preparations. The outcome was very satisfactory to me and Mark ensured that the ultimate experience was, while painful, over quickly." MD
