Grandparent’s rights

Grandparents play an important role in children’s lives but sometimes a conflict between parents can lead to the children being denied contact with their grandparents. It will often surprise grandparents that they do not have automatic rights to their grandchildren in those situations. 

However, this does not mean that they have no recourse. The family courts will consider what is in the best interest of the children, and they often recognise the importance of grandchildren spending time with their grandparents.

Relocating with children

If your ex-spouse or partner is looking to relocate with your children or has refused permission for you to relocate with your children, it’s important to seek legal advice as soon as possible. The procedure for national and international relocation cases remains the same, but it is important to know your rights. Our specialist Family Law solicitors can help you understand the process and advise you on the best course of action.

Cohabitation agreements

More and more couples are choosing to live together and share their lives without getting married. And whilst emotionally, you may feel no different to a married couple, under the law, couples that live together without getting married do not share the same legal rights as those who marry. Find out how a Cohabitation Agreement can future proof your relationship.

Pre & post nuptial agreements

If you need to safeguard your business or financial provisions for your children, you may need to consider a Pre or Post Nuptial Agreement. Find out how our expert Family Law solicitors can help.

Changing your name

You can change your name at any time provided you do not intend to deceive or defraud another person. You will need evidence that your name change is legitimate and permanent for many organisations such as banks, the DVLA, the Passport Office. We can advise you on the appropriate steps to take and assist in the drafting and registration of these documents.

Changing the name of your child requires the agreement of all parties (usually the parents) with Parental Responsibility or an Order of the Court. It is always best to seek legal advice and we can help you with this.
