Family Law Solicitors

Sadly, family life isn’t always smooth sailing. When emotions run high, it’s easy for disagreements to evolve into bitterly fought disputes. If legal advice is not sought early enough, families can find themselves locked in a costly courtroom conflict with their partner attempting to reach a fair outcome. At Henriques Griffiths, our aim is to relieve you of the stress that family troubles can cause. With a sensitive but determined approach, our family law solicitors will fight for a fair and comfortable future for your family.

Why choose Henriques Griffiths for family law?

Since 1973, our family law solicitors have built a reputation for delivering an exceptional service that families can rely on. We understand how emotionally challenging it can be when a relationship breaks down, and how difficult it can be to make those tough decisions alone. That’s why we dedicate our time to helping families through negotiation towards resolution with minimal time and costs.          

At Henriques Griffiths, our family law solicitors work carefully and sensitively through complex issues that can follow a separation, including issues about contact (spend time with), residence (live with), jurisdictional matters and parental responsibility. You will find that we take time to explain your position clearly, rather than drowning you in complicated legal jargon.

Where possible, we will aim to achieve the right result through alternative dispute resolution. This may involve constructive mediation sessions, allowing you and your partner to reach an agreement amicably and cost-effectively. However, above all, our priority is to secure a positive outcome that meets your needs. No matter how complex your circumstances, we’ll fight hard to promote your rights and make sure the correct decisions are taken.

How can our family law solicitors help you?

At Henriques Griffiths, we offer legal support to families in regards to:

  • Childcare
    Where children are concerned, you can rely on Henriques Griffiths Solicitors to prioritise their needs, no matter how complex the circumstances. Whether you need help negotiating arrangements for your children following separation, or your child has been taken into care or social services are assessing you/your family, our dedicated team of solicitors are here to help. With a strong reputation for fighting for our clients and achieving positive results, you can trust us to guide you through this difficult time with realistic, focused advice.

  • Divorce, Mediation & Collaborative Law
    Separating from your partner is never easy – whether you’ve been married for five years or fifty. At Henriques Griffiths, our family law solicitors are committed to keeping the stress and time involved in your divorce to a minimum. By employing techniques of Alternative Dispute Resolution, we are able to help separating couples to reach an agreement in a calm environment outside of court, saving a great deal of time and costs. Whether it’s through referral to constructive mediation sessions or a collaborative approach, or from taking more firm legal action, our solicitors will always ensure that the outcome we secure satisfies your needs.
  • International Family Law
    Family affairs are rarely straightforward. However, when international elements are involved, debates can become increasingly complex and harder to resolve. If for example, your ex-partner has taken your child to another country, our duty will be to take the necessary legal action in returning them safely to you as quickly as possible. If your separation involves foreign assets, our family law solicitors will ensure to take timely action to enable your divorce to proceed as swiftly as possible and the assets distributed fairly, wherever in the world they are. Our family law solicitors are experienced in handling international family law cases, so you can rest assured your case will remain in safe hands.
  • Incapacity
    Watching a family member lose mental capacity is extremely challenging, and can cause a great deal of stress when issues surrounding their welfare and financial assets arise. If this sounds familiar, we advise reaching out to a qualified family law solicitor to determine the best approach in protecting their interests. Our team are dedicated to helping families get the right arrangements in place before a problem arises. Should you wish to apply to the Court of Protection or appoint a Lasting Power of Attorney, you can rely on our team to act with sensitivity and determination to achieve the right solution.

Fixed fees family law services

In most family law cases we will try to agree with you a fixed fee for the legal work involved. So, whether you instruct our family solicitors for your divorce, your children, or a mentally incapacitated family member, you will know from the outset how much it will cost from beginning to end. And you’ll know exactly what work we’ll do in return.
