So, if you or a family member have any disabilities or individual needs, please get in touch for a friendly, confidential discussion with one of our team and we will make any necessary accommodations.
Legal jargon glossary
When providing you with legal advice, we will use plain, understandable English so you won’t be bombarded with loads of legal terms that don’t make sense unless you’ve spent your entire adult life studying law.
However, there are occasions where we may have to use the odd legal term or two. So, we’ve put together this glossary of some common legal words you might encounter during your experience with us. We’re also happy to answer any questions you may have, so please do not hesitate to get in touch to ask.
How we can help you
Divorce, civil partnership dissolution and separation
Our Teddington divorce solicitors know how hard relationship breakdown can be. There are so many matters to sort out – where you will live; how to make sure the bills are paid on time; how you are going to arrange childcare; the list can seem endless.
When emotions are running high and everyone is frustrated, stressed or merely apathetic, trying to get through the divorce or dissolution process can seem overwhelming.
That is where our family law experts come in. We want to help you through this experience as smoothly and painlessly as possible. We can handle all the legal aspects of your separation on your behalf, including:
- The divorce, dissolution or separation application process
- Advice about dividing and arranging finances in a fair way
- Sorting out spousal maintenance and child maintenance
- Making arrangements for children, including parenting plans and court applications
More than simply being your legal advisors, we hope to provide the right level of emotional support you need to start confidently moving on with your life.
Child law advice
Separation can be particularly hard for children, whatever their age or level of emotional maturity.
With younger children, they may not understand why their parents do not live together anymore and the change in circumstances may have come out of the blue, particularly if the parents managed to hide any obvious relationship problems.
With older children, they may understand what divorce or dissolution means, but it can still be difficult and upsetting to process, particularly when they may also be adapting to the pressures of growing up, such as starting secondary school or studying for exams.
Our Teddington child law solicitors take a sensitive, child centred approach to helping families get through relationship breakdown. We will aim to guide you through the process with as little conflict as possible, reducing stress for everyone involved. Our children law expertise includes:
- Helping you make arrangements for children after relationship breakdown
- Advice about parental responsibility (the rights and duties you have towards your children)
- Child maintenance guidance
- Special guardianship (a court order that places a child to live with someone other than their parents)
- Court proceedings involving children, such as Child Arrangements Orders, Specific Issue Orders and Prohibited Steps Orders
Cohabitation agreements and dispute resolution
More people are now choosing to live together rather than marry. However, many cohabitees discover on the breakdown of a relationship that they do not enjoy the same financial rights and protection that spouses or civil partners enjoy on the breakdown of a marriage or civil partnership.
Our cohabitation solicitors in Teddington can provide all the advice you need about protecting your interests in case you break up with your partner or they pass away. We understand that talking or even thinking about these issues isn’t pleasant, but it could prevent you from going through severe financial and emotional hardship in the future. Our expertise includes:
- Cohabitation agreements (also known as living together agreements)
- Making a Will and inheritance advice
- Deeds of trust to set out the proportions in which you own your home
- Matters involving children and parental responsibility
We can also offer specialist cohabitation dispute resolution advice if you and your partner break up and need help resolving legal problems. Our expertise includes:
- Reviewing and enforcing the terms of a cohabitation agreement
- Financial disputes over who owns what
- Property disputes, such as TOLATA claims to obtain a share of your family home
- Arrangements for children
- Financial provision for children, such as child support
When you’re buying or selling a home, remortgaging or going through another type of property transaction, you need fast, efficient and cost-effective legal advice.
Our expert conveyancing solicitors in Teddington are Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) accredited by the Law Society. This means that we have been independently recognised for our high quality advice and excellent customer service.

Our expertise includes:
