Family Law Solicitors

At O’Brien Murphy Solicitors, we provide a full suite of family law services. Whether you’re considering a divorce or looking to adopt, our team of experienced family law solicitors stand ready to provide you with independent and practical legal advice – allowing you can relax in the knowledge that you are in expert hands.

Although this is not an exhaustive list, we provide legal advice and support in the following areas of family law:

Divorce / Separation

Maintenance

Custody, guardianship and access

Adoption

Domestic violence

Divorce / Separation

 

The breakdown of any relationship can be a devastating experience and can be a time of great upset and distress. We know that since there is nothing more important than the security and wellbeing of your family, any disruption can be a difficult experience. Our team of expert family law solicitors will help you through this difficult time and will offer a solutions-driven and positive approach in a discrete and sensitive manner.

 

When a marriage first breaks down, many couples informally separate and live apart. Most however, will go on to regulate matters between them in a formal legal way – by separation agreement, judicial separation or divorce. If you wish to discuss any of these options, our team of expert Family Law solicitors are here to provide you with practical and easy-to-understand advice on all aspects relating to Separation or Divorce.

Maintenance

 

Maintenance is the term used to describe the legal obligation parents have to financially support their children up until the age of 18 (or 23 if they are in full time education). These agreements between separated parents are often informal, however when disagreement arises, an application for maintenance can be made to the Court. Our team of experienced family law solicitors are here to advise you on your responsibilities and rights in relation to Maintenance and we are also here to represent your interests in court, should that need ever arise.

Custody, Guardianship and Access

 

By far one of the most contentious family law matters, decisions relating to the caring of children can be an emotive topic and requires an extra skill on the part of any family law solicitor. Custody, guardianship and access to children relates to how separated or divorced parents will raise their child on a day-to-day basis, how they will make lifestyle and developmental decisions relating to the child’s life and the how often either parent will have access to their child. Our team of expert family solicitors can advise you on any or all of these applications.

Adoption

 

A complex and daunting process, our team of experienced family law solicitors can advise and guide prospective adoptive parents through every stage of the adopting procedure – from the assessments for Declarations of Eligibility and Suitability before the HSE to representing prospective adoptive parents at the Adoption Board.

Domestic Violence

 

Best described as a pattern of violent, coercive or threatening behaviour by one partner towards the other, domestic violence can take a number of forms ranging from physical and sexual abuse to verbal psychological abuse or the threat of abuse. It can also take the form of financial control and a creation of dependency or the physical control over a person’s movements.

 

At O’Brien Murphy Solicitors, we consider this to be by far one of the most intolerable crimes and that’s why our team of expert family law solicitors are here to help you use the legal system so that you are not confronted with such behaviour again – including obtaining protection orders, safety orders and barring orders.
