Carol specialises in all family matters, including arrangements for children upon the breakdown of a relationship, separating co-habitees, divorce and the dissolution (ending) of a Civil Partnership. She can also assist with financial settlements and document drafting by way of agreements upon the commencement or the ending of a relationship, child contact agreements, together with co-habitation agreements and Change of Name Deeds. She understands that often-time, a divorced wife will wish to revert to her maiden name, or another name of her choice.
Carol has the ability to empathise with separating couples and is very well aware of the effect that separation can have on any children of the family, their welfare being of utmost priority. She recognises the traumatic impact that separation can have on families. Her main aim is to encourage all parties to reach mutual agreements, both in relation to financial resolution and issues surrounding the children, thus avoiding the need for Court proceedings and the conflict that proceedings can attract.
Carol is a member of Resolution, an organisation that commits its members to encourage settlement of disputes without confrontation, conflict or obstruction. This commitment helps to keep the “heat” out of a relationship breakdown.
“I wish to express my gratitude and appreciation for the advice, assistance and support Carol has given with my recent matrimonial matters and for helping me obtain a much needed occupation order. Carol has been so supportive and approachable during what is a very stressful time for me. She is an asset to your legal team and I would recommend her to any potential clients.”
In her spare time, Carol enjoys spending time socialising with her family, travelling the country to attend concerts, comedy shows and all things animal, as well as abroad for the sunshine or the snow! Carol also has a passion for birds, and has an aviary housing a pair of bonded Rosella Parakeets and is looking to expand to take in rescue birds and give them a second chance.
