Divorce/Dissolution of Civil Partnership

Ward & Rider's Coventry family law team are experienced with divorce and dissolution of civil partnership cases. We recognise the emotional strain that ending a relationship can cause so we focus our efforts on helping our clients to understand their rights as an individual coming out of the partnership or marriage in terms of property, finance and also any children involved.

Unmarried Couples Disputes

With many couples now refraining from getting married, Ward and Rider have developed their knowledge to assist clients who unfortunately find themselves in an unmarried dispute regarding children, finance or property. As an unmarried couple rights and responsibilities differ to that of a married couple, and so Ward and Rider can help you to understand your options and entitlements.

Parental Responsibility

Parental responsibility refers to the rights and responsibilities of all mothers and most fathers of a child. A father of a child only automatically has parental rights alongside the mother if their child was born after the 1st December 2003, up until this point only the mother had automatic parental responsibility. What this meant was that should a relationship breakdown the mother would previously, in general have had the right to determine where a child would live, go to school and any medical treatment they should receive. Should your relationship breakdown, Ward and Rider can help you to understand your rights as a parent; we can assist in obtaining parental rights orders and the drawing up of parental responsibility agreements.

At Ward and Rider we understand the difficulties that can be posed through a family dispute, both the emotional and financial strain it can cause. We aim to complete each case in a timely and effective manner to prevent any escalation of dispute. We look at each case individually, giving you honest advice as to the potential outcome of your case, and guide you through each stage of the legal process so that you understand the steps we are progressing through.
