Whether your issue is separation or divorce; cohabitation; where your child should live or the time they should spend with the other parent; whether you are planning to get married or enter into civil partnership; or buying a property with your other half for the first time, these are just some of the issues that Caritas Legal can assist with.

Its experts work closely with other professionals to assist clients in providing focused solutions to their legal issues.

They are committed to resolving issues outwith the court setting where possible through the use of alternative dispute resolution, including the collaborative process and mediation, but are just as comfortable litigating where appropriate.
