We provide specialist advice on a wide range of family law issues, including divorce, separation, financial settlements and children-related issues or the breakdown of unmarried relationships. In that context we can advise on the division of property, capital assets and child maintenance. We specialise in cases where one of the parties is resident in Spain, being familiar with the common issues of jurisdiction and enforcement that arise in this context. We are also experienced in dealing with child abduction cases.

Our services in family law include:

  • Divorce and separation
  • Civil partnerships
  • Money and property
  • Pre-nuptial and cohabitation agreements
  • Children
