UK FAMILY LAW IN NORTHAMPTON

What Is UK Family Law?

In the UK (England and Wales), UK Family Law refers to a specific set of legal situations that involve legal disputes concerning the welfare of a child in relation to his/her parents or the relationship and property regime between individuals. The Family Court, which is the court empowered by law to hear and decide cases that involve UK Family Law will generally render decisions with the best interests of any children involved in mind.

As far as the UK is concerned, Family Law is not just limited to Family Lawyers, The Family Court and the actual parties involved. There are also agencies and groups involved that participate and influence the outcome of family law decisions.

Different Branches and Jurisdictions in the UK

It is worth noting at this point that the legal jurisdictions that the UK Family legislation covers all have different systems in effect. The main subdivisions are:

  • England and Wales (covered in this article)
  • Scotland
  • Northern Ireland

To avoid confusion, this is why you may see conflicting information online regarding how the UK family Law courts work – particularly involving who has the power to hear and decide cases that involve family matters according to law.

There is also no homogenous body of text that encompasses all of the UK’s family laws at once. Instead, there are several laws together with decided cases (case law) that make up the controlling legislation as far as family issues are concerned. Some of these include:

Marriage and Divorce Issues

Naturally, marriage and divorce are always construed to fall under family legal issues. The main laws that the judge will take into account when hearing and deciding on matters that involve family legal issues would be the Civil Partnerships Act of 2004 and the Same Sex Couples Marriage Act of 2004. The issues to be resolved in this area generally involve the property regime between the couples and how divorce would affect the distribution of properties after marriage. It is worth noting that if there are preexisting marriage settlements between the parties involved that these settlements are binding if they have been legally entered into and if they are not contrary to law.

Divorce and dissolution cases are covered by the Matrimonial Causes Act of 1973. Furthermore, when children are involved, the provisions of the Children Act of 1989 also come into play.

What Can A UK Family Lawyer Do For You?

If you are involved in a case that involves family legal disputes in the UK, then turning to a UK Family Law Solicitors for legal assistance is the best. Family issues can be complex, harrowing, and sensitive, and this is why UK Family Lawyers will always work with the utmost sensitivity and integrity to bring an ideal resolution to any family legal dispute. There are a wide range of legal services that a Family Lawyer can provide in favor of a particular client.

Of course, a family lawyer will also work towards a quick settlement of any claims in favor of the client if possible. This includes drafting settlement offers and negotiating with the other party’s counsel in order to create a compromise between the parties involved in a particular family legal dispute.

UK Family Law Solicitor

Using UK terms, a family law solicitor is simply one of the two types of practicing attorneys in the UK. A UK Family Law solicitor is tasked with drafting documents, confers with clients, delivers documents, as well as gives clients instructions.

On the other hand, a barrister does the actual trial work – which means making appearances before the court in legal representation of the client. An overlap can sometimes occur between the two functions. Therefore, a solicitor may also appear in the lower courts as an advocate and a barrister may still be asked for legal advice as well as help in drafting legal documents.
