We have a dedicated specialist team of family law and divorce solicitors based in Oxford. We work with divorce and civil partnership dissolution. The end of a relationship can be a huge strain on those directly involved but also other family members and children. We are committed to helping our clients to understand their rights and responsibilities upon the end of a marriage. We can give advice to help you to solve financial issues, and provide the best care for children, and property.
Unmarried Couples Disputes
Unmarried and cohabiting couples do not receive the same rights as married couples. Therefore, disputes are not necessarily resolved in the same ways. Ward & Rider help you to understand your options and entitlements relative to the individual situation regarding finance, property and children.
Parental responsibility is the rights and responsibility of mothers and most fathers. This can refer to custody issues and child protection. The full details of who has automatic rights over a child are outlined here.
Family disputes can highlight a number of problems which can magnify across the family unit making the emotional, and sometimes, financial strain massive.
In the event that your relationship breaks down, Ward and Rider Oxford can assist you in obtaining parental rights orders and drawing up parental responsibility agreements. We aim to complete all our cases in a timely and effective manner, all the while guiding you through each stage of the legal process so that you understand each step.
