WARD AND RIDER SOLICITORS, PERSONAL INJURY, NOTTINGHAM
Divorce/Dissolution of Civil Partnership
Our Nottingham based team are experienced in varying degrees of divorce and family legal matters. Our expertise spans across divorce and dissolution of civil partnership services, parental responsibility and custody issues. We recognise the impact that the end of a relationship can have on those who are in the middle of a family dispute in terms of the additional stress and extra problems it can cause within the family unit.
Unmarried Couples Disputes
We can offer advice and support to couples or individuals who are currently going through an ‘unmarried’ dispute. Unmarried couples do not have the same legal rights as those who are married as they differ slightly. Our Ward & Rider experts can therefore help you to understand your options, entitlements and legal rights.
All mothers and most fathers of a child have rights and responsibilities which differ on the basis of the child’s age. For example, a father of a child will only have automatic parental rights (alongside the mother) if their child was born after 1st December 2003. Before this it was the mother who had automatic parental responsibility. We understand that there can be difficulties in the event of a family dispute. There is both emotional and financial strain caused by a family dispute, and at Ward & Rider we understand these complications giving you the most honest advice that we can. To get legal advice or for a free consultation on your case, call Ward & Rider Nottingham on 0115 901 7063 to talk to one of our team or to book an appointment.
