Family Law

The breakdown of any family relationship is always a really difficult time for those concerned, particularly when there are children involved. We work very hard to minimise this as much as we can for our clients by dealing with matters as quickly and as sensitively as possible. Fiona Munn, Malcolm Thomson and Emma Carter are experienced in all aspects of Family Law and can provide you with a full range of specialist advice and representation depending on your individual circumstances.

It might be that you would like to protect yourself in the form of a pre-nuptial agreement, you may need advice and guidance pre separation or hopefully we can provide referrals for mediation and counselling which may resolve the breakdown. However sometimes the breakdown of a marriage is unavoidable and at Marshall Wilson we try to resolve these matters by negotiating a separation agreement which hopefully then allows couples to proceed with a straightforward divorce action. Sometimes divorces begin on an opposed basis but through time and with negotiation, settlement terms can be agreed. Mediation can also be a very effective and relatively inexpensive way of dealing with otherwise difficult divorces. Sometimes court action is necessary however and we have extensive experience in dealing with opposed divorce actions including disputes concerning children and money. Fiona, Malcolm and Emma are regularly appointed by the Courts to carry out reports in family law cases.
