We understand that a marriage break up is an extremely emotional and stressful experience especially where children are involved. Family law is different from other areas of law, because of the very strong emotions involved. These emotions inevitability impact on the decision making process of the parties. Often the financial settlement is the easiest aspect of the break-up to resolve.

When marriage first breaks down many couples informally separate and live apart. Marital breakdown affects all areas of a person’s life, and most people go on to regulate matters between them in a formal legal way.

There are three different ways of doing this in Ireland:

As specialist family law solicitors our aim is to guide the parties through the process with as little stress as possible and to attempt to finalise the financial aspects of the matter without going to court. Where conflict is inevitable we have the resources to meet contentious cases head on and to fully defend and protect the interests of our clients. We operate with the utmost discretion, sensitivity and confidentiality.

We have access to forensic accountants and actuaries who can advise on all financial aspects of a client’s situation.

We also act to protect the interests of civil partners and unregistered cohabitants.

Our Dublin city centre offices are convenient and welcoming. You can be assured of a friendly, professional and sympathetic approach in all your dealings with us.
