Testimonial

“ We recently had a Client in need of legal advice. Netmatters made the decision to appoint Dawsons law. Salena was professional, polite, She provided a quote and a fixed fee for any additional agreement moving forward. As an agency we often have to deal with multiple legal issues and we have no trouble recommending Salena Dawson . She truly is a solicitor at the heart of the community”

Netmatters

“I must commend you on your will writing service.... We both had been putting of making a will for some time, however Salena made us feel at ease with her personal approach and advice which made the whole process very natural and professional. We would be more than happy to recommend Dawsons law to our friends and family”

James Robinson

“I wanted to write now that my Matrimonial Finances have been settled and are now concluded. Dawsons Law provided a unique service in assisting me as more or as little as I required. I have spoken to friends who have been through similar process . They were amazed at how conciliatory you dealt with me and my ex-wife. You were straightforward with advice and kept my legal costs down though your commonsense approach. Thank you so much.”

Prenuptial Agreements

 

A Prenuptial Agreement helps you and your partner to make a formal arrangement concerning your financial matters prior to marriage or civil union.  The content of a Prenuptial Agreement can vary widely, but commonly includes provisions for the division of property should the couple divorce and any rights to spousal support during or after the dissolution of marriage.

A Prenuptial Agreement is the best and only way for a couple to protect their assets in the event of a divorce and although not very romantic it makes sense to get one drawn up so that both of you know exactly where you stand from day one.

The Court always has discretion to overturn any agreement in family proceedings, although if legal advice has been taken and the proposals were considered by fair when the agreement was made, the Court is unlikely to contest the couple's express wishes, which makes the agreement a valuable addition to your legal protection.

The Prenuptial Agreement can deal with the following: -

  • Property
  • Pensions
  • Gifts
  • Inheritance
  • Maintenance and future income
  • Legal advice
  • Company and business assets
  • Tax liabilities
  • Trusts
  • Inheritance

Separation

You may opt for separation instead of starting immediate Divorce proceedings. Should this be the case, we offer advice on drafting Separation Agreements.

A Judicial Separation does not end the marriage, but does end the duty to live together.

Normally any financial arrangements would be settled between you and your spouse and a Deed of Separation would be drawn up. If an agreement cannot be reached, then Mediation is an alternative way to deal with such aspects of separation, whereby you would attend meetings to decide as to whether or not an agreement can be reached. Any agreement reached would be checked over by a Solicitor.

You must Divorce before being allowed to remarry.
