Going through any type of family crisis whether it be a separation, financial upheaval, child problem or divorce can be one of the most difficult and challenging things that can happen to a family. However mentally well prepared you may think you are there is always an element of pain. There is no such thing as an easy divorce or separation particularly where children or your future financial security are involved.
At Hawkins Family Law we strive to ensure that your concerns are our concerns. Clearly if there are children involved then the arrangements for them will be your priority. We believe that if at all possible it is far better if the parents remain on civil terms and certainly we will try and ensure that litigation is a last resort. This is why we believe that how an issue is resolved is so important.
We acknowledge that when your family is in crisis it is not easy to make a decision. Family law is very different to other areas of the law, it is personal, and often this can create other dynamics in terms of irrationality or emotional issues. We recognise that our clients need additional support and therefore now are able to offer our clients a counselling service via our consultant counsellor who is based at our offices and helps our clients work through the emotional trauma of separation.
All of the lawyers at Hawkins Family Law practice exclusively in the family law arena. We understand that divorce and separation can affect all aspects of your life and our team will work with you to offer creative strategies to achieve the best solution for your individual circumstances.
