Matrimonial Law

When married couples separate it is essential to seek legal representation. Many questions arise including the division of assets, maintenance payments and the responsibility for joint debts. There may also be hidden issues such as the right to occupy the matrimonial home or pension rights.

Walker Laird has the answer to all your questions and can advise you in all aspects of family law to include:-

  • Divorce
  • Separation
  • Protection from abuse
  • Division of family property
  • Maintenance

The law has been extended to afford certain property rights to cohabiting couples. This developing area of the law is one where all parties, whether married or not, should take careful advice when the need arises.
