Family Matters

The breakdown of a family relationship is an immensely stressful and distressing time for all involved. The emotional upheaval is particularly difficult to deal with, but there’s also the impact on a family’s financial wellbeing to consider.

At M.M. Halley & Son, we pride ourselves on our high levels of client care, delivering an expert, professional service with a personal and compassionate approach. Serious legal, financial and tax implications arise from the breakdown of a relationship. Our experienced family law solicitors are adept at providing the practical and constructive advice you need to negotiate detailed settlements.

Putting negotiation and mediation first

Family law is one area where we always encourage communication in favour of conflict, considering the needs of the whole family unit, particularly the children. Unfortunately, negotiation and mediation is not always possible. In this case, we will advise and guide you through every stage of the process, while seeking alternative courses of action. If litigation is necessary, we will act decisively to defend and protect your best interests.
