Separation and Divorce

Separating from a partner is an extremely challenging and emotional situation.  At Alex Mitchell and Sons we understand this and strive to provide a sympathetic service, designed to guide you through the difficult and complex issues in a straightforward and positive way, to make this difficult situation as simple and as beneficial as possible, with a solution tailored to you.




Civil Partnerships


Since 2004 people of the same sex have been able to enter into Civil Partnerships. Civil Partnerships confer most of the same rights enjoyed by married couples. However, like marriages, some civil partnerships unfortunately come to an end and there are many legal ramifications including contact with any children, the sharing of property and financial provision. Our firm can advise you through these difficult times and ensure that you are in a positive position at the end. We can also assist you with Pre and Post Civil Partnership agreements.



Child Law


Sometimes when relationships between parents break down contact with the children can break down as well. Often both parents have parental rights and arguments can arise as to how contact and residence are regulated. You may not have parental rights and are looking to get them. We can help you. Whether we negotiate or raise or defend an action on your behalf, our aim is to help you while ensuring that the best interests of the children are accounted for. As members of the Family Law Association we understand that actions involving children must be dealt with in an effective and efficient manner with a great deal of sensitivity and with an open mind.
