Family Law Solicitors in Ashby de la Zouch


A modern approach for modern families


Modern family life can often be complicated, bringing with it a number of legal issues. You may be married or just cohabiting. There could be children or stepchildren to consider, and financial assets such as property, pensions, inheritance, or business interests to protect. You may be separating from your partner, or thinking about taking the next steps towards marriage and living together.

Fixed fee consultations and services


Fishers offer a fixed fee initial appointment where you can discuss your situation with one of our expert family law solicitors. You will leave the meeting with a clear understanding of your options, the likely costs, and the probable timescales involved.


Fishers are also able to offer various other services on a fixed fee basis including divorce and drafting agreements. Find out more information on Fishers fixed fee options.


Our family law services


We are also highly experienced at representing clients in court, meaning that, where this is the best or only appropriate option, we can support you and represent you, ensuring your case is presented in the best possible way and giving you the strongest chance of achieving success.


Divorce & relationship breakdown


Going through a divorce or relationship breakdown can be a highly emotional and stressful experience. Our expert divorce and relationship breakdown solicitors have the experience to guide and support you through the process of formally ending your relationship, including handling all of the financial aspects and making arrangements for children, where required.


We can help you to achieve the best possible result for your interests and those of any children you have, so you can move on as quickly as possible with complete peace of mind. Where family mediation is appropriate, we will support you through this process, or where going to court is the best, or only reasonable option, we will represent you and defend your interests.


Prenuptial agreements


Prenuptial agreements are becoming increasingly common now that couples are tending to marry later and are more likely to both have significant assets before entering a marriage. A prenuptial agreement can provide a sense of certainty and peace of mind, helping to remove a potential source of stress and tension during a marriage, while also offering some reassurance if your relationship does end.


Our family law team can help you and your partner create a robust prenuptial agreement that takes both of your needs into account, helping you to create a mutually acceptable agreement that protects your interests.


Civil partnerships


Civil partnerships offer an alternative to marriage for same-sex couples and come with many of the same issues, including dealing with relationship breakdown and protecting your assets before entering a civil partnership.


Fishers family law solicitors have over a decade of experience in dealing with the legal issues surrounding civil partnerships, so can offer a high level of expertise when supporting you in this area.


Children law


Any legal issue relating to your children has the potential to be highly emotive and stressful, while protecting your children’s best interests is of paramount importance. Whether you are going through a divorce or separation, making arrangements for child care or child maintenance, looking to adopt, or facing any other legal issues related to your children, getting the right legal advice quickly is essential so you can find a fast, effective solution that protects your interests and those of your children.


Our expert children law solicitors have many years of experience helping clients with all aspects of the law relating to children. We will always put your children’s wellbeing first, finding legal solutions that enable you to achieve your goals in a way that protects your children and offers lasting solutions, providing stability and peace of mind.


Domestic violence


Where you or a loved one have been the victim of domestic violence and other forms of domestic abuse, it is important to take action as soon as possible to make sure it cannot happen again. Our specialist domestic violence solicitors understand that this is a highly sensitive issue that many people find difficult to talk about. We are therefore committed to making the process as easy and supportive as possible, helping you to get the protection you need.


We can offer help with domestic violence and abuse issues in a number of ways, including through Non-Molestation Court Orders, which ban your partner from coming near you or your property, from making threats, or in any way harassing you or your children. We can also assist you with an Occupation Order, forcing your partner to leave your home if they refuse to do so after an incident has taken place.
