For the times you need us most

Keeping distress to a minimum and providing a supportive environment is key to the work of PCB’s Family law team.

The breakdown of a relationship can be a sad fact of life. It can be a highly stressful time for all involved - particularly for children.

Our friendly staff will ensure a sympathetic ear and practical guidance to help you find your way through the issues that affect families and children. From amicable binding agreements to Court proceedings, the PCB experts are able to assist and ensure you remain informed throughout.

For everyone’s benefit, our aim is always to help resolve issues without confrontation. If a divorce or separation from your partner appears inevitable we can answer all of your questions about your rights and any procedures which need to be followed.

If an amicable agreement does not appear possible, we can then advise on all courses of action that might be available, including taking matters to the courts. At all times our team will ensure you understand the process and are comfortable with what is happening on your behalf.

Issues you will often need to consider will include financial arrangements, where your children will live, when each parent will have contact with them and the legal position of your relationship. We can advise you on all of this.

Important issues we can assist with include:

  • Adoption
  • Care proceedings
  • Child custody
  • Cohabitation issues and pre-nuptial agreements
  • Collaborative Law
  • Divorce and associated financial and property issues
  • Domestic violence and injunctions
  • Prenuptial Agreements

Our support will come from our skilled solicitors as well as our team of friendly and experienced clerks and legal executives. Although we can’t remove all the stress from such difficult situations, we can try to alleviate it by acting sensibly in pursuit of the best result for you and your children.

Depending on your circumstances, you may be entitled to public funding for your legal fees. PCB holds a Community Legal Service (Legal Aid) franchise in Family Law, permitting us to carry out Legal Aid-funded work.
