Family Law


We know that sometimes unavoidable issues can arise in family relationships, and Maxwell & Co can provide sound, empathetic legal advice whether you are facing a potential separation or are planning on separating.

At Maxwell & Co, we can guide you through the divorce process and make sure it is as painless and hassle-free as possible. Our team have many years of experience in dealing with family law issues, and their knowledge of family law legislation is invaluable. Our team can fully inform you of your options, and make sure that you are fully aware of all of your alternatives.

With family law matters, our main goal is to resolve the issue without taking it to Court. Our solicitors will do their best to achieve a satisfactory out of court resolution through negotiations, and keep the process as inexpensive as possible. However, sometimes it is necessary to take these matters to Court, and if this does happen, our solicitors will use their strong litigation skills to ensure that your side of the story is told effectively and endeavour to reach the best resolution possible.

Our team can also guide you through other difficult aspects of divorce or separation proceedings, such as:


Division of assets

This can be a very contentious issue when it comes to divorce and separation. Divorce is often a difficult process, and it doesn’t help when there are arguments over property and assets. Maxwell & Co can help you with negotiations concerning the reasonable division of property and assets.


Custody of children

Disputes over custody of any children in the family can be painful for all parties involved. Our team will seek to put forward your case in the best way possible in order to achieve the most suitable custody arrangement, while working to minimise any undue grief.


Child support arrangements

Our solicitors will use their strong legal skills to make sure that after the separation you and your children are adequately provided for. This involves negotiations with the other side in the matter in order to make sure that your family will not be left without sufficient support.
