At Sterling Winshaw Solicitors, we understand that family matters can be emotionally challenging and legally complex. Our dedicated team of experienced family law solicitors is here to provide comprehensive legal support to clients facing a wide range of family law issues. We offer a variety of services tailored to meet the unique needs of our clients, whether they require assistance in private court matters, public court cases, or seek alternative dispute resolution through family mediation. Our commitment is to provide compassionate, personalised, and effective legal guidance during these challenging times.

Private Court Matters:

  1. Divorce and Separation: Our solicitors can assist you in navigating the divorce process, whether it’s amicable or contested. We provide guidance on financial settlements, child custody, and all related matters.
  2. Financial Settlements: We will work diligently to secure fair and equitable financial settlements that protect your interests, including spousal maintenance, property division, and pension sharing.
  3. Child Custody and Support: Our team will advocate for the best interests of your children, helping you reach agreements on child custody, visitation rights, and child support payments.
  4. Pre-nuptial and Post-nuptial Agreements: We offer legal advice and assistance in drafting, reviewing, and negotiating pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements to protect your assets and interests.

Public Court Matters:

  1. Child Protection: Our solicitors are experienced in representing clients involved in public court proceedings related to child protection issues, including care orders, adoption, and child welfare concerns.
  2. Domestic Violence: If you are a victim of domestic violence or need protection orders, we can help you navigate the legal process to secure your safety and well-being.

Outside of Court:

  1. Family Mediation: We understand that not all family disputes need to be resolved in court. Our trained family mediators can facilitate productive discussions and negotiations between parties, helping you find mutually agreeable solutions without the stress and expense of litigation.
  2. Collaborative Law: Our collaborative law services encourage open communication and cooperation between parties to reach settlements outside of court, fostering a more amicable resolution process.
  3. Alternative Dispute Resolution: In addition to mediation and collaborative law, we explore various alternative dispute resolution methods to provide clients with effective and efficient alternatives to litigation.

At Sterling Winshaw Solicitors, our priority is to help you find the best possible outcome for your family law matter, regardless of whether it involves private or public court proceedings, or if you prefer a non-adversarial approach through family mediation or alternative dispute resolution. We are committed to providing you with the guidance and support you need during these challenging times, always striving for the best interests of you and your family.
