My Family, Your Family, Our Family

The classic picture of a family has changed over the last few decades. Divorce, remarriages, co-habitation and civil partnerships mean that, today, no two families are alike. Society’s changes are reflected in changes in family law, and your family lawyer has to be up to date.

When couples get together, events happen - events like buying a home, merging financial interests, having or adopting children, and more. Sadly, couples also fall out. Then what’s ours becomes Mine or His or Hers.

Dealing with family issues is never easy - you need a sympathetic, yet fair and realistic lawyer who can help you achieve a satisfactory solution to your problems.

Here in Sudbury on the Suffolk and Essex border in the heart of East Anglia, we at Bates Wells & Braithwaite believe that agreement is better than conflict and we will seek to reach an mutually agreed outcome. However, if it is necessary we will represent you at court with the rigour necessary to protect your interests.

The Wider Impact

Sometimes family law involves more than just the family. A family business, commercial and residential property trusts, investments and other assets may have to be added into the equation. When this is the case we work in close collaboration with our corporate, commercial and property colleagues to make sure that needs are met both now and in the future.
