Effective solutions to the most complex family disputes

Going through a divorce or navigating changes in family structure can be challenging, especially with the increase in marriages involving international elements, global residences and complex worldwide family assets and businesses.  At Deacons we understand the importance of protecting our clients’ interests and resolving matrimonial disputes as quickly and effectively, to minimise emotional distress and preserve family harmony where possible.

Our team is experienced in handling a wide range of family related matters including financial disputes and children matters including relocation and international child abduction, maintenance and financial provisions for special needs children and cohabitees in both contentious and non-contentious settings.

Our diverse family practice covers:

  • pre and post-nuptial agreements
  • divorce and separation
  • financial ancillary relief (claims for maintenance, lump sum settlements, division of property and other matrimonial assets), including injunctive relief to preserve assets
  • children: custody and access disputes, relocation, child abuse, guardianship, wardship proceedings and international child abduction cases under the Hague Convention
  • domestic violence

We also recognise the importance of alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation, and our team includes very experienced family mediators.
