Family

Here at Oldham Marsh Page Flavell we understand how difficult any problem arising within a family can be. Stress levels are high with emotions and passions at fever pitch. We know this, we understand and we care.

The law in all areas of family law is complex and rapidly changing to reflect society’s changing social attitudes and lifestyle choices. We provide a comprehensive range of services including divorce, child arrangement orders,  pre and post-nuptial agreements, cohabitation rights, international family law and more.

Every year, more than 100,000 marriages in England and Wales end in divorce. If it’s happening to you, you’re certainly not alone. A split can have a devastating emotional impact on both parties but what should never be overlooked, is the financial needs of both spouses and any children. Negotiating a financial settlement in divorce is a skilled and complex task. The law is ever evolving in its interpretation and application and each case will be resolved depending on its own facts and figures.

If you are in a civil partnership, the procedure for dissolution mirrors that of divorce, although different terminology is employed. You will receive the same entitlements as a spouse who gets divorced, and can apply for financial provision.

As the marriage rate in England and Wales continues to decline, the number of unmarried, but cohabiting couples continues to rise. At present, there is no law in place tailored to meet the needs of a cohabiting couple if their relationship breaks down. If you are about to move in with a new partner, you may wish to consider drawing up a cohabitation agreement to clarify the ownership of shared property and other assets.

It is always preferable for parents to reach an agreement in relation to child custody between themselves. However, such important decisions can be difficult to make, especially in the midst of an acrimonious divorce.  OMPF advises our clients on the options available to them as parents, and helps clients to resolve any contested issues raised in relation to children.

You can be assured that we are completely transparent with our fees and costing’s, meaning there are no hidden extras, shocks or surprises when your case concludes and the final bill arrives.
