Franklins’ family law services

Our family law solicitors in Northampton regularly help individuals and families with a wide range of issues.

Divorce and separation

We help clients to reach fair agreements about the practicalities of ending their relationships, including financial planning, dividing assets and making decisions regarding child custody. Our expert divorce solicitors use skilful negotiation and mediation wherever possible to reach a harmonious resolution, but will also robustly defend your interests in court when required.

Pre-nuptial agreements

With so many people getting married later and tending to have significant assets of their own, pre-nuptial agreements are becoming increasingly popular. A pre-nup can remove uncertainty and offer peace of mind to both parties in a marriage, taking away a potential source of tension and meaning you are protected if the marriage does end in divorce.

Cohabitation agreements

If you are planning to live with a partner without getting married, a cohabitation agreement can protect both of you, making your financial obligations and other details of how you will manage living together clear. This is especially important where one of you owns a property that the other is moving into, as it will avoid any confusion or conflict over the rights and responsibilities of both parties.

Mediation and collaborative law

Mediation and collaborative law offer two slightly different approaches to resolving disputes in a non-confrontational way, avoiding the need to go to court. These two methods are often used in divorce and relationship breakdown.

Mediation involves a single trained mediator acting for both parties, helping them to find a mutually acceptable solution to their legal dispute.

Collaborative law involves both parties being represented by their own solicitor, trained in collaborative law, but the aim is the same – finding a solution both parties can live with, without going to court.

Children matters

Where a family is separating or has separated and there are children to consider, we will help you take the appropriate actions to protect your children’s interests while minimising their stress and the disruption to their lives.

We can help you with custody agreements, child protection orders, injunctions, court proceedings and all other aspects of the law relating to your children.

We also assist couples with all matters relating to adoption.
