Our dedicated solicitors specialise in all aspects of family law, from matrimonial agreements through to divorce including issues relating to; children, property and finances.

The breakdown of any relationship can be difficult and legal issues can often arise when circumstances in relationships or family life change permanently. At Khans we aim to provide practical solutions and deliver clear and honest advice in a caring and sensitive manner. We understand we are dealing with people and not just paper and that we may be changing the course of people’s lives by the way in which we conduct their cases. We therefore believe that family law requires a different approach in comparison to the many other areas of law and we aim in a sympathetic and professional manner to help resolve issues as quickly and as amicably as possible.

We have extensive knowledge and experience in all areas of family law whether negotiating straightforward divorce settlements or more complicated cases involving children and the division of property, personal and business assets. Where children are involved, we support our clients in putting their children first and prefer solutions which encourage communication rather than confrontation. Based on this principle wherever possible we try and advise clients on conciliation, negotiation, compromise and resolution. Equally whilst we explore alternatives to litigation with our client we also recognise the occasions when prompt action is needed. In these instances we understand the necessity for urgent court action and will do everything we can to defend and protect our clients’ interests.

Finally, conscientious about costs, we work honestly and efficiently with our clients, explaining the pros and cons of the case and the likely costs of any course of action. We pride ourselves on our high level of client care and communication and always keep clients appraised of developments in their case whilst ensuring they are aware of the costs implications of any work beforehand. We prepare case plans and consider the benefit of an action versus the costs involved. We believe this allows for transparency and for matters to be concluded in a timely and cost-effective way.

  • Divorce and separation agreements
