Family Law & Divorce
In today’s society, there is no such thing as an ‘average’ family or relationship. You may be married, living together, in a civil partnership or separated. Children, step-children or adopted children are perhaps living with you or maybe grandparents are involved in the day-to-day care of children. Whatever your personal situation, if a relationship breaks down, you want a family solicitor you can trust and who can really help you to resolve difficulties quickly and cost-effectively.
Helen Rendell is the solicitor who specialises in Family Law. She is a member of “Resolution”, an organisation set up for family lawyers who are committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes.
Family issues, such as divorce, can often feel isolating and overwhelming. Helen seeks to offer a sympathetic, expert ear and advise you on your options, possible outcomes and will give guidance in plain English and with no legal jargon.
She specialises in:
- Divorce, separation or civil partnership dissolution: Helen tries wherever possible to adopt a cooperative approach to divorce or separation to ensure that the process runs as smoothly as possible, with as little rancour as possible and without the need for either party to attend court or incur unnecessary expense
- Arrangements for children, such as residence and contact
- Financial issues including maintenance, lump sums, pensions and making provision for children
- Property issues: what happens to property on divorce, separation or civil partnership dissolution
