We offer comprehensive advice and assistance on divorce, separation, ancillary relief and maintenance issues at all court levels.
With these difficult economic times, we recognize many couples wish to enter into proactive negotiations to settle the case in the most amicable way whilst minimizing costs. We can offer advice on matrimonial agreements that would achieve financial settlements between separated persons. However, we also understand when necessary discussions are not progressing court action is the best avenue to take to ensure effective action and results are achieved.
We advise on the rights and responsibilities associated with civil partnerships from the preliminary stages before entering into one through to the dissolution of a partnership that has irretrievably broken down.
The Civil Partnership Act 2004provides the mechanisms to, apportion property, arrange maintenance and divide pensions in the same way these matters are handled in divorce. We have experience in drafting and executing prenuptial agreements for prospective civil partners.
As well as advising civil partners about their rights upon the dissolution of the partnership, we also advise surviving partners about their rights in inheritance disputes.
McLernon Moynagh also has specialist and expert experience in annulling civil partnerships in accordance with provisions set out in the Gender Recognition Act 2006 and those entered into in Consular Offices around the world.
Pre Nuptial Agreements
We provide drafting and negotiation expertise for those considering marriage or entering into a civil partnership to protect existing assets. These agreements can be used to demonstrate the parties’ intentions to the court, and although not currently legally enforceable, they can be highly persuasive and influential in the resolution of divorce or dissolution cases.
