Family law is something that most people don’t think about until they need to – often in the event of an unexpected relationship breakdown or disagreements about changing child arrangements.
These events can turn lives upside down. It’s during these difficult times that a family solicitor can provide invaluable support and guidance.
Sinclair Law Solicitors specialises in high net-worth divorces and child-related matters, but the Wilmslow and Bramhall-based firm offers a full range of family and private client legal services.
Sinclair Law Director Lucy Hart said: “Supporting families through divorce – and managing difficult issues like family finances and childcare arrangements during a separation – is one of the biggest aspects of family law. But it’s not the only kind of service we offer.
“In 2022, we were very pleased to welcome Jobeth Copping-Barrett to the firm to head up our private client team. Jobeth is very talented and offers her clients support with matters such as wills, probate, estate planning and power of attorney.”
Divorce and separation
A family law solicitor can provide a lot of professional advice and support during a divorce or legal separation.
It’s essential that you use a reputable family law solicitor like Sinclair Law when it comes to handling some of the more challenging aspects of a break-up, like the division of financial assets and childcare arrangements.
Childcare and child welfare
Family law solicitors always try to put children in the heart of what they do.
Legal processes can be tough on children, which is why Sinclair Law’s solicitors put their wellbeing first and try to secure the best outcomes for the whole family in the long term with services like:
- Post-divorce childcare arrangements
- Separation agreements
LGBTQIA+ family law
Unfortunately, some LGBTQIA+ people feel marginalised and misunderstood in the family law system, which is why many look for specialist help.
Sinclair Law specialises in LGBTQIA+ family law services. Sinclair Law solicitor Suzanne Moore has worked with Manchester’s LGBT Foundation for over 15 years and is a member of the UK and Ireland LGBT Family Law Institute.
