Family Law

Marriage breakdown is a stressful time for all parties involved. It affects every aspect of a person’s life. Shannons can provide practical legal assistance in the areas of:

  • Divorce and Nullity
  • Separation
  • Maintenance Applications
  • Custody and access
  • Guardianship
  • Barring Orders

Important areas are the family home, the children, pensions, financial and taxation implications.

The Civil Partnership and Certain Rights and Obligations of Cohabitants Act 2010 gives same sex couples rights and responsibilities similar, but not equal to, civil marriage.
