Elisabeth HoweSenior Associate Solicitor
Specialist in family law and Accredited Family Mediator.
I’m a Senior Associate in the family team, and act as a family mediator undertaking case work, as well as supervising and mentoring junior solicitors.
Complex issues involving pension and business structures are matters I deal with frequently, as well as other financial and child issues following relationship breakdowns. I also deal with the implementation of asset protection measures including drafting “living together” agreements, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements and separation agreements.
I’m an Accredited Family Mediator, and in addition to traditional separation and divorce work I undertake a substantial amount of mediation work.
Such Agreements are particularly relevant for couples entering into a second marriage, where they wish to protect their pre-marriage acquired assets against claims by their new spouse.
People are understandably anxious about how their assets will be divided, what will happen to the family home and who will care for the children.
Qualified mediators and senior associates, Elisabeth Howe and Maria Ramon, are able to assess a couple's suitability for mediation, with the authority to sign FM1 forms to permit court applications to be pursued where necessary.
Any change to the law and procedure which encourages parents to focus on their children’s needs is a positive step and will be welcomed by all family lawyers.
