Family issues

The family law specialists at Mackrell.Solicitors in London are experienced in assisting sports professionals on family issues, including those with an international dimension.

We understand that sporting careers can generate substantial assets that you will want to protect in the event of a relationship ending. We can draft comprehensive pre-nuptial, post-nuptial and living together agreements, to set out arrangements regarding assets, property and children should a marriage or other relationship break down.

The end of a marriage is never easy, so we provide sensitive, constructive legal advice to help you to understand exactly what’s involved in a divorce, including the ground you might have for seeking to end your marriage, allowing you to make informed decisions designed to help you move forward with your life.

As members of the UK family law association Resolution, we are committed to resolving family disputes in a constructive and non-confrontational way, to avoid court proceedings wherever possible.

Sport professionals are often internationally mobile, which can result in relationships between people of different nationalities or marriages taking place in different countries.

When such relationships break down, the international jurisdictions that may be involved can create additional challenges in resolving issues involved in separation and divorce, including financial settlements and arrangements involving children.

Our family law solicitors will use their expertise in this specialist area of the law to advise on issues including where a divorce can be initiated and the most appropriate jurisdiction, financial arrangements where assets are held in different countries and the relocation of children, if one parents wants to move to another jurisdiction with children from the relationship.
