Family Law

The breakdown of a family can be one of the most stressful and difficult times in a persons life. McKinnon Forbes offer expert friendly advice and support from the outset. Whether you require advice on separation, financial disputes or child care arrangements our dedicated family lawyers can help. Separating from your spouse/partner can be a traumatic and confusing time. If you have children, own a house or run a business together, a range of issues will need to be resolved. Our aim is to achieve a smooth, and wherever possible, amicable resolution. This can be by negotiation with your partner’s solicitor, collaboration, or through the court process.

McKinnon Forbes family team can also advise you in situations where you require protective measures from your ex-partner. This can be in the form of a Domestic Abuse Interdict or an Exclusion Order. These are emergency orders and if you require assistance please contact us without delay.

Equally you may have a relative, young or old, who can either no longer look after themselves or who requires assistance to do so and you require a Continuing and Welfare Power of Attorney or Guardianship to enable you to make all the important decisions about their welfare and finances.
