Our family law services in Cheltenham

Divorce and separation

When a couple decides to divorce or separate, it can be an emotionally difficult process with many aspects to consider. Seeking the sensitive support of our solicitors can reduce stress levels, keep costs low and prevent unnecessary conflict.

At Tanners Solicitors, our divorce and separation solicitors in Cheltenham can assist you through the entirety of the process, including making a no fault divorce application, responding to an application and applying for the conditional and finals orders.  

Divorce and Finances

Married couples are financially linked, and divorce does not sever the link, meaning in divorce, all assets will need to be considered and addressed, deciding which spouse will get what.

With the assistance of our divorce and finance solicitors in Cheltenham, we can help you seek an amicable division of finances that suits your needs and interests. However, should court be required, our team have exceptional expertise and a successful track record.  

Our solicitors can assist with:

Companies and Divorce

Businesses and companies are often the most significant assets during divorce, and protecting them is important, especially where only one party has an active role. When businesses and companies are involved in a divorce seeking advice from a specialist divorce lawyer is crucial.  

Our solicitors have worked with many clients divorcing their spouses and can provide tailored advice regarding how the Courts treat companies and businesses on divorce. Our in-house specialist commercial lawyers can also bring their experience and expertise to bear. We also have strong links with forensic accountants who can provide additional specialist support.

High Net Worth Divorce

High net worth divorces are often complex and require a further level of legal support from experienced solicitors.

At Tanners Solicitors, our high net worth divorce solicitors in Cheltenham recognise how contentious higher net worth divorces can be and strive to guide clients towards strategic and tactical resolution methods. Our solicitors have a huge amount of experience in dealing with complex high net worth divorces.

Divorce and the Farm

Agricultural businesses are often passed down through many generations of families, and in the event of divorce, conflict can arise. Both of our Partners, David Milburn and Meg Moss, have a particular specialism in this area of law.

Our divorce solicitors in Cheltenham can help streamline the process, creating a strategic action plan to protect your family asset.

Spousal Maintenance

In some instances, one spouse may be required to pay the other spousal maintenance. This is often set by the court and can either be a fixed term maintenance order or a joint lives maintenance order.

Our spousal maintenance solicitors in Cheltenham can help you avoid paying spousal maintenance or alternatively obtain a court order requiring your spouse to pay you maintenance.

Variation and/or Capitalisation of Spousal Maintenance

Where an individual’s circumstances have changed, either party may be able to apply to vary a spousal maintenance order, i.e. requesting the spousal maintenance amount to be amended, or paid in a lump sum known as capitalisation of maintenance.

Our specialist solicitors in Cheltenham have a broad scope of knowledge and skill and can support clients with all types of variation and/or capitalisation of spousal maintenance matters.

Arrangements for Children

When parents divorce or separate but share children together, disagreements can often arise about where the child will live and when they will spend time with or have contact with the non resident parent. Seeking guidance from a solicitor is essential to ensure the best resolution can be arranged.

At Tanners Solicitors, our team in Cheltenham encourage our clients to attempt alternative dispute resolution, allowing you to maintain a positive relationship with your child’s other parent and preventing you from facing expensive and lengthy court proceedings.

Grandparent's Rights

Grandparents do not have automatic rights, but being prevented from contact can be devastating. You can, however, make an arrangement with those who have parental responsibility or apply to court for an order.

Our solicitors in Cheltenham understand the sheer upset this can cause, and we strive to provide the utmost sensitivity throughout. Our family law solicitors can guide you through the process, attempting out-of-court resolution methods where possible. Should family court be necessary, our team can provide specialist expertise.

Pre-nuptial agreements and post-nuptial agreements

Getting married is a big life commitment and can have consequences in the event of divorce. A pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreement can protect your individual finances.

Our solicitors in Cheltenham can provide expert advice and assistance to ensure the agreement suits you, as well as protects your hard earned assets. We have helped many clients, including those with higher net worths.

Cohabitation agreements

It can be exciting moving in with your partner, but unmarried couples have no legal rights to each other in the event of a relationship breakdown. For this reason, considering a cohabitation agreement is essential.

Our cohabitation agreements solicitors in Cheltenham can assist in drafting a cohabitation agreement that reflects both your and your partner’s interests. We will walk you through the process, ensuring you are aware of the benefits and limitations involved.
