Family Law

Edwards Family Law is here to assist you in every aspect of family law. Whether you’re seeking advice on child arrangements, financial disputes or need guidance on a financial consent order our experts in family law are here to help.

Civil Partnerships

Entering into a civil partnership requires as much thought and planning as a marriage regarding the legal implications of what might happen later. Edwards Family Law can support you on all matters relating to Civil Partnership and its dissolution.

Cohabiting & Unmarried Couples

Fewer and fewer people are getting married in England and Wales and are choosing instead to live in a cohabiting relationship. Edwards Family Law can support you through everything related to cohabitation.

Finances & asset division in my divorce

Asset division during a divorce can be a complex process that requires careful consideration of legal principles and individual circumstances. Edwards Family Law can support you through this complicated process.

International & Expatriate Divorces

In an ideal world, the arrangements for children to live with or spend time with their separating parents will be agreed between the parents themselves, but sometimes big decisions such as relocating overseas with your children, can warrant specialist advice. At Edwards Family Law, we can advise you every step of the way.

Pre-Nuptial & Post-Nuptial Agreements

Protecting your wealth ahead of a marriage, or once a marriage has occurred,  is becoming increasingly common. It is now not unusual to be mindful of the implications on divorce or dissolution of a civil partnership on pre-acquired wealth or inherited assets and specialist advice is essential.

International Children Law and Issues

Separation often means that a family’s circumstances will change.  Maybe you or your partner wish to return to your home country or you have been offered a job elsewhere. This can often be a complicated process. Edwards Family Law can assist you with every step to ensure the best outcome.

Financial Arrangements for Children

Whatever the reasons for the separation, Edwards Family Law will advise you in a pragmatic and straightforward way enabling you to approach the matter in a way which meets your goals and supports your family where relevant.

Understanding consent orders

Edwards Family Law is a team of experienced divorce solicitors based in London, specialising in all financial matters arising from separation or divorce, including consent orders.

Legal Services for Sports Professionals

A breakdown in a relationship can leave a professional sportsperson or footballer, particularly at the height of their career, exposed to financial claims from the other party which can often be unaffordable in the long term. At Edwards Family Law, we are specialists in working with sports professionals.
