Family Law

  • Family Law

      • Family law is concerned with the legal rules pertaining to family matters and domestic relations.

        The following crucial aspects are covered in family law:

        • Your rights when divorcing and the monetary aspects relating to divorce;

        • Maintenance issues;

        • All factors regarding children, including how to implement a parenting plan, the amount of child maintenance required, and how
        to file for maintenance and child support.

        • The procedures to obtain a protection order (domestic violence or abuse);

        • An unmarried father’s rights;

        • The law on cohabitation, same-sex marriages, and how to draft a proper cohabitation agreement.

        Members of the public should also be aware of the change to Rule 43 Applications (interim relief to a spouse in divorce proceedings, in respect
        of maintenance, pending the litigation). The change introduces a mandatory uniform financial disclosure form in matrimonial matters. This
        form should result in reduced time and costs associated with discovery, and hopefully encourage early settlement.
