Family Law

At Ryan & Frost Solicitors we are committed to seeking to resolve family disputes in ways which avoid confrontation. Whether it is in relation to differences about the arrangements for the children or the family finances, we encourage the parties to be open with one another, to give full and frank details of their circumstances, and to treat each other with respect. In our experience, reaching agreement through mediation and negotiation is a much more preferable, and significantly less expensive, option than pursuing matters in court proceedings.

Areas in particular where Ryan & Frost Solicitors can help are:

  • Preparing and serving divorce petition.
  • Applying for your decree nisi.
  • Applying for your decree absolute.
  • Arrangements for the children.
  • Maintenance pending suit.
  • Spousal maintenance.
  • Pensions orders.
  • Lump sum orders.
  • The matrimonial home.
  • Property adjustment orders.
  • Enforcement of orders.
  • Cohabitation disputes.

Our fee for an initial consultation is £150.00 plus VAT. Thereafter work is charged on an hourly rate basis. We do however keep all clients fully informed of costs and will give you an estimate of costs at your initial consultation. We also, whenever possible, agree fixed fees for carrying out certain work and pride ourselves in giving valuable advice at reasonable costs.

If you would like to discuss any of the above matters  or any other family law matter please contact Keith Ryan on 01933 273234.
