Whatever the family law issue, Healys solicitors in Brighton are here to help

8th March 2015 by


Most of us have a doctor and a dentist which we visit regularly or whenever needed. Many people use the same healthcare specialists for their entire lives because they know and trust them. If we need to find a new dentist or doctor, it’s easy enough to find your nearest practitioner either on the internet or through directory listings, or you may even ask friends or family for recommendations.

However, when it comes to finding a solicitor, you need to know you will be getting the best service possible and it may not be so easy to find the right, or best lawyer for your particular situation.

Healys LLP is a long-established, well-respected family law firm in Brighton, with many years’ experience in representing clients through the myriad legal issues which affect them.

Our team of family lawyers helps clients whose relationships have broken down, and we pride ourselves on our sensitivity and understanding in matters of separation and divorce. We can help clients safeguard their best interests from the preliminary stages of separation right through to financial claims on divorce.

We also have wide-ranging experience in many other areas, including offering guidance to same-sex couples on the legal implications of civil partnership agreements.

Here at Healys we believe the negotiation of pre-nuptial and pre-civil partnership agreements to be a sound strategy for protection of our clients’ interests and can offer full and highly experienced financial guidance in the planning of any marital property agreement, whether it be pre- or post- marriage or civil-partnership.

Family lawyers can also help in times of crisis, if, for instance, an estranged spouse is threatening to remove a child from jurisdiction (away from the court-agreed place of residence), we can help by enacting swift legal measures in an attempt to prevent any such action. Further, if you fear for the safety of yourself or your children, whether you are estranged from your partner or not, our family solicitors, working alongside the police, can help.

Healys can help clients who need advice and representation in respect of Contact and Residence Orders and as members of Resolution (the Solicitors’ Family Law Association) we adhere to a specific Code of Practice which encourages a mediation and conciliation between all parties involved in a family law issue. This promotes a sensitive, constructive and cost-effective approach to family law matters and offers the best chances for agreement.

And yet, if this approach does not yield appropriate results, or other parties deliberately attempt to obstruct the course of fair negotiation, we believe in using robust methods, through the courts if necessary, to achieve the best outcome for our clients.
