Family law and marriage

Whilst the need for a solicitor for a divorce or other family law matter may seem obvious, with marriage it may not be your first thought. However, there are many ways in which a solicitor can help with the smooth running of any future plans.

Firstly, the (admittedly material) benefits of marriage may not be obvious. A solicitor can explain the financial benefits of being married over cohabiting, and if you have children or assets this may be relevant to protect your interests and ensure your children’s futures.

Secondly, the legal position regarding pre-nuptials is changing, with a couple of interesting court cases having taken place in 2009. The impression is that they’re taking on a slightly more important role, and a solicitor will be able to help you plan for any eventualities by drawing up these agreements.
