Family law and divorce

Running a farm is usually a family concern. Farms are passed down from generation to generation and it’s more than just an asset and an income, it’s a way of life.

Our Family law solicitors are highly experienced in helping families deal with the issues that come from a relationship breakdown. We help deal with the impact of family breakups on children and offer specialist advice on the financial implications of starting or ending a relationship, recognising the unique and often complex issues that farming families face under these circumstances.

We’re also here to help you plan your affairs strategically ahead of time, to avoid problems further down the line. Careful planning in advance is vital if you wish to protect your farming interests. We can help you safeguard assets and future income streams through the creation of a partnership agreement or family trust, taking full account of the specifics of your farming business and individual family circumstances.

We can help you with:

  • Dividing assets in divorce
  • Separation agreements
  • Financial claims
  • Child arrangements
  • Post-nuptial agreements
  • Pre-nuptial agreements 
  • Partnership agreements
  • Discretionary Trusts
