What are the main elements of family law?

Many people think that family law only refers to separation and divorce, but family law is much more complex than that! It covers wide range of topics including marital settlement agreement, property division, child custody, child support, pre- and post-nuptial agreements, amongst others. The most common parts of family law we deal with in Cambridge are divorce, child custody and child support.

My partner and I are not married; what happens if we split up?

In the UK, the law does not recognise what is often called 'common law' partners. When unmarried couples split, they often have assets together. Without the legal framework that married couples have access to, good legal advice from a family law specialist is vital in achieving a fair and equitable resolution – especially if children are involved.

How long does it take for a divorce to go through?

A divorce can take between 6-8 months if not disputed. If the divorce or finances are disputed, this timescale can be much longer, depending on when such issues are resolved.

What happens if we cannot agree with whom the children should live?

The focus must always be what is in the best interests of the children. If this cannot be agreed upon, the court will decide for you. You are certainly encouraged to attend mediation before this stage.

Do I have to attend mediation?

You do not have to attend mediation if you have agreed all family and divorce matters. If you want to apply to Court, relating to children or finances on a divorce matter, you will normally need to have attended mediation before making your application.
