What are the main elements of family law?
Many people think that family law only refers to separation and divorce, but family law is a lot 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 and more. The most common parts of family law we deal with in Peterborough are divorce, child custody, and child support.
What type of court orders can be made regarding children?
A Supervision Order is where a child is placed under the supervision of the Local Authority, but this does not give it parental responsibility. The child is not taken into care and remains with the parents, with the local authority being legally obliged to offer support and assistance to the child and his/her family.
An Interim Care Order is a temporary care order which gives social services parental responsibility for a child, which they then share with the parents. It means that social services can decide where a child will live while the court proceedings are continuing.
My partner and I are not married; what happens if we split up?
In the UK, the law doesn’t recognise what is often called “common law” partners. When unmarried couples split, they usually 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 for all – especially if children are involved.
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.
