Family Solicitors For NHS Staff

Nobody ever expects to have family problems, but when they do occur you will want somebody to help you resolve them, swiftly and amicably.

We have an experienced team of Family Law Solicitors who specialise in providing expert advice to NHS staff when they need it most.

We provide clear and straightforward guidance on a wide range of family matters, including divorce, separation, childcare and cohabitation.

Our solicitors have expert knowledge of NHS pensions and shift patterns and will be able to advise you on how best to achieve the outcome that will best suit the needs of you and your family.

We offer a free initial appointment with a solicitor to discuss your matter. If you instruct us, we provide a 10% discount on all of our hourly rates for NHS staff and have also created a series of fixed-price consultation meetings with a no questions asked money-back guarantee promise.

Divorce and Separation

When any relationship breaks down it can be difficult, especially if the stresses of your profession have caused tension within your marriage. It can be a complex process and you might not know where to start, but our team are here to provide clarity and understanding.

Our goal is to resolve matters as quickly as possible, and by taking the problem off your hands we enable you to focus on the other important areas in your life.

We can also help you to resolve financial matters. We have expert knowledge and experience in dealing with NHS pensions and understand that you are likely to be anxious about what will happen to your pension on divorce.

There are numerous ways in which courts can deal with NHS pensions, including:

  • Pension sharing: This is the most common option. This is where pension funds are transferred or split between the two of you, creating two separate pension schemes.
  • Offsetting: This is where your former spouse does not receive a share of your pension but instead receives a larger proportion of the other available capital.
  • Deferred lump sum: This is an order requiring you to pay a proportion of the lump sum that you receive upon retirement to your spouse.
  • You each retain your own pensions. This is dependent upon the values of your pensions and the other assets in the marriage.

We can guide you through this process and ensure that your pension is protected as much as possible when dividing the assets between you and your spouse.

Child Arrangements

Unfortunately, when couples separate, they often find it challenging to agree on how their children should be cared for moving forward.

We always try and encourage parents to reach an agreement on matters regarding their children where possible, as an agreement made solely by the two parties usually stands a greater chance of working in the longer term.

However, if you and your former partner are unable to reach an agreement on matters concerning your children then our family solicitors are here to assist with negotiations.

Where negotiations are not successful, it may be necessary to resolve matters through the courts. If this is the case, our solicitors will be able to formulate an effective strategy to achieve the best possible outcome for your family, taking into account the nature of your work and how this may impact upon any arrangements that are put in place.

Cohabitation

In some cases, couples who have been living with each other for an extended period of time believe they have rights similar to that of married couples, however their rights differ significantly from couples who are legally married.

You may wish to consider a formal cohabitation agreement before you move in together, which will set out what will happen to your property and shared assets if you were to separate.

You also can opt to put in place a cohabitation agreement at any time after you have moved in together.
