Turning Angry

It’s Complicated

Your assets, investments and businesses are complex. So, perhaps, is your family.

Some cases are more complicated than others, and need a deeper and more detailed level of analysis to establish the facts. It’s in these situations that our experience comes to the fore. We conduct the necessary analysis and then plan a strategy to reach an agreement, if that’s possible, or take it to Court if it’s not. Our analysis might require financial, valuation, forensic, medical or other expertise; and we have excellent relationships with experts in all of these fields.

You’ve been trying to finalise things for months. Even years.

Sometimes, matters become protracted and nothing seems to be moving forward. It might be because your partner is delaying things, you don’t know what to do next or, for whatever reason, things have stalled. Where the delay is beyond your control, we will explain what’s going on and take the necessary steps to get things moving towards a resolution.

Will it ever end?

See you in court

Sometimes, court is the only way. You’ll need a strong team to represent your interests.

If the legal issues surrounding your separation can’t be settled by negotiation and agreement, court may be your only option. DCH Legal Group are highly-experienced family law litigators and will build and present a strong, well-thought out case on your behalf.
