Nobody goes into a relationship with the intention of separating, but with the best will in the world, not all relationships are meant to be. With separation comes uncertainty, both emotional and financial. How will the future look for you and your family and how will you get there?
At this time, choosing the right lawyer is one of the most important decisions that you will make. We will help you select a family lawyer who is the right fit for you and our objective is to always provide you with clear, sensible and pragmatic legal advice – enabling you to move forward to a happier future.
Our approach is always to resolve cases efficiently by way of negotiated agreement wherever possible – whether they be child-related or financial disputes arising from separation. When that is not possible, our team has extensive experience in the Sheriff Courts of Scotland and the Court of Session in Edinburgh. Whatever it takes, we will guide you constructively to a resolution focussed on your own individual end goal.
Family law should not just be a ‘crisis service’. Asset protection is a key part of what we do and taking family law advice early allows you to create some certainty in the event of life not turning out as planned. Whether it is moving in together, buying your first home as a couple, exploring a joint business venture, or embarking on marriage, our team of family law specialists can add value to your decision making every step of the way.
Why Esson & Aberdein? At all of these stages in your life, your solicitor should be affable, take the time to understand your individual needs, and, importantly, be available for you. We pride ourselves on these standards and the personal relationships we develop with our clients.
