Family law matters can be some of the most daunting and emotional times in life. It is, therefore, extremely important to seek expert legal advice from professionals. The team at Hains & Lewis recognise how stressful the process can be and always strive to provide a comforting and supportive service no matter your circumstances.
Most family law issues can avoid court litigation where appropriate. We have a broad scope of knowledge in methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), such as negotiation and mediation. These methods are often more cost-effective and quicker than court proceedings. In addition, these approaches are less contentious and help to maintain family relationships where possible.
If court proceedings are required, our solicitors can assist with the process, making sure you understand the steps involved, in addition to preparing a strong argument and supportive evidence, so as to achieve the desired outcome.

When going through a divorce, it’s essential to seek assistance from a divorce solicitor.

Divorce financial settlements
Financial settlements during divorce can often be the most contentious aspect. They can potentially be complex (often involving tax and pension). A solicitor can help ensure your interests are protected, but also make certain that you and any children’s needs are fairly met.
Our solicitors at Hains & Lewis can assist in finding a settlement that best suits you through methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), where possible. Should you require a court decision, our solicitors can help you to prepare and, if needed, represent you in court.

Pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements
Pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements may seem like they’re only designed for those who are wealthy, but putting these agreements in place can protect your assets no matter the value.
Our solicitors can provide guidance on what you should include, its impact in the event of divorce, and assist with negotiations should it be required.

If you and your partner are preparing to live together, it can be an exciting time, but that doesn’t mean problems won’t occur in the future. Putting a cohabitation agreement in place can help to protect your interests, as those involved will agree on how assets and debts will be split on separation. A cohabitation agreement can also include how household bills are divided during the relationship.
A cohabitation solicitor can assist with the process, ensuring everything important is included, as well as advising on the benefits and limitations of an agreement.
Our family lawyers in Carmarthen can help with matters including:
