Nuptial Agreements: Marriage, in many respects, is like a partnership between two like-minded people and the identification of responsibilities between the parties can be used to develop and maintain the property belonging to one of the spouses, especially when one of the partners has substantially fewer assets than the other.
our services in this area of the law extend to drafting agreements, negotiating with the other partner’s counsel and counseling clients who wish to remain abreast of the latest developments in the law in this area.

Separation: At some time point of a malfunctioning marriage, a couple may realize that the best solution would be to go in for a divorce. A practical solution would be to negotiate a settlement rather than fight tooth and nail against each other. To take this forward, you would have to go in for a separation agreement to take care of all your legal obligations and entitlements. If you and your spouse can agree on these grounds, you can have a divorce easily and without any judicial intervention and on amicable grounds too.

Custody and Visitation: When a marriage breaks up, children become a very important aspect of the final settlement between the two spouses. As a parent, your concern for your children is natural and uppermost on your mind while working out an arrangement with your spouse so that the children can live with one parent and regularly meet the other and so enjoy a healthy relationship with the non-custodial parent. At Al Jazeera, we deal with such sensitive matters with great care and sensitivity.
