Back To School: Guide For Separated Parents

This time of year can be tricky for separated parents who might not necessarily share the same views. But it is time of to prepare children for the new school term ahead as co-parents.

Mediation can be a great way to resolve conflicts and make formalised agreements to suit both family homes that your children may live between.

Cohabitation Nation

No matter how long your relationship, whether you own a property or have children together, you may be surprised at your lack of legal rights if the relationship breaks down.

A cohabitation agreement is a sensible investment if you are a couple living together.

Most Popular Day for Marriages: The Common-Law Marriage Myth

Did you know that Saturday 18 August is the most popular date for weddings in the UK this year?

Coinciding with this date is a campaign to raise awareness on the common-law marriage myth.

Many couples believe that because they have lived together for many years, or have children together that they would automatically have certain legal rights if the relationship was to break down. However, this isn't necessarily the case.

There are ways of getting peace of mind though. So if you aren't considering marriage but want to protect your financial interests then please get in touch...

However, since the early 1970’s the number of people actually getting married has steadily decreased, dropping a further 3.4% last year. There have been many theories about why marriage rates are falling, but regardless the fact remains that fewer people are formalising their relationship.

Holiday Blues from Illness or Injury Abroad

As many of us set off on or return from our summer holidays this month, there are some people that are coming back without the wonderful holiday memories they were hoping for. 🤕🏥

Sickness and injury can ruin a holiday, perhaps one you have saved up for all year. The upside is that compensation is available if you have a good claim.

To find out if you might be entitled to a no win, no fee claim please speak to one of our Personal Injury team today - 01256 844888 or email [email protected]

As we are now in the school Summer holidays, many of us are returning from, looking forward to or perhaps just booking a last-minute summer holiday.

If you are separated from the mother or father of your child and planning to take your children on a Summer holiday this year, ensure that you are aware of the legal implications.

But for separated parents travelling with children, it can sometimes be vital to first obtain the permission from the other parent before leaving the country. Failure to do so could result in getting into trouble with the authorities for the criminal offence of child abduction.

Have you been affected by the collapse of Universal Trusts? | Lamb Brooks Solicitors

Unfortunately we have now seen a few couples in Basingstoke affected by the sudden closure of Universal Trusts (also operating under Universal Wealth Preservation and other names).

A seminar was held locally at the Hilton Hotel, Reading in 2017 where we are told over 100 people attended in hope to ring-fence their assets and reduce their inheritance tax bill.

Please check if your family members are affected. James Phipps, Head of our Private Client department is kindly offering a free 30 minute appointment with anyone who is concerned, where we can check through their paperwork and provide some guidance.

With Generation Y being called the #GenderFluid generation and more people identifying as being neither male or female, our latest blog explores what anti-discrimination protection is in the workplace and what should an employer do if an employment issue arises?

In recent years an alternative view on ‘gender’ has come into focus. With Generation Y being called the ‘gender fluid generation’ and more young people identifying themselves as being neither male or female, is it about time employers and legislation got to grips with non-binary gender?

You may have heard in the news recently about the Government online divorce service...an interesting concept, and one that could work for some.

A new online service should cut the stress of applying for a divorce according to the Ministry of Justice, but family law professionals warn it’s likely to benefit only those with simple finances who are pursuing the DIY route.

Lamb Brooks Solicitors | Supporting Employees During Ramadhan

As Ramadan begins millions of Muslims will start a month of fasting between dawn and sunset. Although fasting is usually the primary association with Ramadan, this month involves a lot more than refraining from food and water. Extra prayers, late nights, charitable actions and a further emphasis on patience and virtue are all part of this holy month.

So how can employers understand and support their workforce during Ramadan whilst maintaining productivity?

Fasting during Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam and, although fasting is usually the primary association with Ramadan, this month involves a lot more than refraining from...
