Family and Matrimonial

Family and Matrimonial Law is about families, their relationships and the matters that affect them. Family Law encompasses marriage, separation and divorce, as well as child arrangements and financial and property settlements. These apply equally to married and unmarried couples, as well as civil partnerships and same sex marriages.

When a relationship breaks down it can lead to separation and/or divorce proceedings.  It is likely that you will be confused and upset and have lots of questions about your situation.  Our role at VP Legal Solicitors is to help you to manage your concerns and plan for your future and advise you on what is an appropriate settlement.  Our priority is to try to deal with things amicably and swiftly and endeavour to negotiate appropriate terms of settlement, but if that does not prove possible, we are well placed to represent you in court if the need arises.

As well as being a Family Lawyer with over 25 years experience, Chris Cuthbert is also qualified as a Family Law Arbitrator.  He is in fact the only Chartered Legal Executive in England to hold this qualification.
