Family Law & Divorce
Family law in its simplest terms covers all aspects of divorce and family matters surrounding the break up of a formal relationship. This can be the breakdown of a marriage, civil partnership or any children’s issues that arise as a direct result of a divorce or separation.
Family law has a broad definition and the Benussi & Co Ltd team is adept at handling a wide variety of associated issues that can be considered part of matrimonial law.
Division of assets, access to children and complex financial resolutions all require the expert skill of a trusted solicitor who will achieve the right results for each individual client. Representing and protecting the interests of individuals, children and grandchildren during the legal process requires specialist expertise.
In most cases, both parties will be individually represented by their own solicitor who will initiate proceedings with a view to achieving the best settlement for their client. The Benussi & Co Ltd team are experts in division of marital property, calculating spousal support, and devising the most appropriate plan regarding children’s matters including access and visitation rights as well as financial support where relevant.
In certain circumstances, Family law can incorporate extremely sensitive areas of legal practice such as domestic violence or child abuse which may result in criminal charges being made for certain parties in a case. Knowing ways to advise on such circumstances is part of the Benussi & Co expertise, which will highlight the best options available for clients to be able to protect themselves and their interests.
