Divorce

We work with clients going through a difficult marital situation in order to resolve matters involving division of assets, custody of children and access rights. Our firm seeks to minimise conflict and motivates clients to reach a divorce or separation on a consensual basis using negotiation and dispute resolution skills whenever possible. We are aware that at times this may not be achievable and, when that happens, we remain prepared to go trial on each client’s behalf.

Going through a divorce will often be a life changing experience. It will likely result in a major change in your family structure, finances and way of life. With so much to be won or lost, it is important to ensure that your legal rights are upheld throughout the proceedings before the Family Court in Malta, thus ensuring that you obtain a fair divorce settlement. It is a known fact that once the divorce goes through, very little can be changed. It is essential that your divorce is done right, first time.

We have prepared our legal practice in anticipation of the introduction of divorce in Malta in October 2011 by adapting our considerable experience in personal separations and family law to the new regime. We are confident in being able to assist you with all aspects of your divorce. If you are considering or anticipating a divorce, it is important to seek legal representation from experienced lawyers who are able to defend your interests. Our lawyers have experience litigating cases that involve:

  • Spousal maintenance and child support (and their modification)
  • Child care, custody and access rights
  • Domestic violence
  • Paternity
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Property division
  • Protective orders

We know that each case is unique. Contact us to set up a private and confidential consultation to discuss your personal circumstances.
