Downie and Gadban

Family law

In recognition of the personal and often delicate nature of the issues which arise in family relationships, we provide a service which ensures sensitivity and discretion, as well as practical effectiveness.

We deal with all aspects of family law, including:

  • divorce and separation
  • pre-nuptial agreements
  • cohabitee contracts and disputes
  • civil partnerships
  • management of matrimonial finances (ancillary relief) including effects of pension and taxation laws

When a person has died, we can provide expert advice and assistance to clients who are spouses, former spouses, civil partners, former civil partners or unmarried couples (and in some instances their dependant children), helping them to make a claim for reasonable financial provision from the deceased person’s estate. Likewise, we can defend such claims on behalf of the deceased’s estate.

Please see our litigation and wills and probate pages.
