We act on behalf of clients who are buying, selling and re-mortgaging their home, making sure it is a big investment well made.

Conveyancing is the transfer of ownership or interest from one person to another. It involves the buying, selling or mortgaging of any type of property.  We strongly encourage you to engage the services of both a solicitor and a property surveyor such as an engineer or an architect, before paying a deposit on any property.

FAMILY LAW

Clients seeking our services in relation to matters of Family Law usually require our assistance in relation to Separation Agreements, Judicial Separation, Divorce, Maintenance/Child Support.

A Separation Agreement

If a married couple in Ireland wish to separate and they can agree the terms upon which they wish to live separately they may enter into a Form of Contract called a Separation Agreement. Both parties must consent to the terms of the Separation. It is a legally binding contract setting out the parties rights and obligations to the other. A Separation cannot deal with matters arising as a result out of Pensions and the Trustees of Pension Schemes are not bound by the terms of a Deed of Separation. 

Judicial Separation

If a married couple in Ireland cannot agree the terms by which they will live separately an application to the Courts for a Decree of Judicial Separation can be made by either party. The Court must be satisfied that the couple has been advised about Counselling / Mediation and that proper provision has been or will be made for in respect of any dependent members of the family. An Application for a Decree of Judicial Separation is made either in the Circuit Court or the High Court. 

What is Divorce?

A Decree of Divorce in Ireland allows both parties to a marriage to re-marry. Before a Court can grant a Decree of Divorce in Ireland, the following conditions must be met: The parties must have been living apart from one another for a period amounting to four out of the previous five years before the Application is made. There must be no reasonable prospect for reconciliation. Proper arrangements must have been made or will be made for the Spouse and any dependent members of the family.

Maintenance/ Child Support

There is a legal responsibility for both Spouses to maintain each other and any dependent members of their family in accordance with their means. Maintenance can be paid weekly or monthly or in a lump sum. In Ireland, paying maintenance does not in itself give a parent access or guardianship rights.

If parties cannot agree upon maintenance, either party can apply to the Courts for a Maintenance Order. This Application can be made through either the District Court or the Circuit Court or the High Court.

Each party is under an obligation to disclose in full their finances to the Court. The Judge has to consider all of the family’s circumstances, assets, income etc. when making a Maintenance Order.
