Christmas can be an extremely busy time for everyone, making time to visit a solicitor may not be high on your agenda. However here are a few reasons why it may be beneficial to seek advice from your Friend-in-Law over the festive period.
1. Family & Relationships
Festive celebrations have long been associated with many relationship breakdowns and there are many potential reasons for this. Sometimes arguments can be triggered by the combination of couples spending a greater amount of time together and in some instances the stresses of debt. But couples can at least be reassured that our high quality divorce lawyers are available to advise and support them through any difficulties they face.
2. Christmas Conveyancing
With the New Year rapidly looming, you might be looking to start a whole new life, and that may mean moving house – perhaps for a new job. Whatever your individual circumstances in needing to sell your home and buy a new property, our specialist Conveyancing team can help you. We can undertake all the necessary duties in a conveyancing transaction so you can relax and enjoy the festivities.
3. Christmas Employment Issues
During the Christmas period employers face a minefield of HR challenges. Workplace Christmas parties in particular bring up issues of conduct and discrimination. Whatever your individual circumstances our experienced Employment Solicitors can advise you of your rights as an employer or provide representation for employees.
4. Gaining Access to the Children
Christmas can be an extremely lonely and emotionally difficult time for separated parents, especially when they are not able to spend time with their children over the festive period. It’s therefore not surprising that some parents consider taking the legal route to securing contact with their children. Our team of experienced Family Lawyers and Mediators are available to offer impartial advice and help them to compromise on contact arrangements.
5. Writing a Will
There’s no time quite like Christmas to realising the importance of your family. So, what better time could there be to write a Will for the first time or update an existing one? In the absence of a Will, your assets may not automatically pass onto your loved ones as you might have presumed. Our Wills & Probate team can help ensure you get the right lifetime plan in place to suit you, with your assets being distributed as you wish.
