Why Choose PDA Law’s Family Solicitors?

Headed by respected family lawyer Martin Dias, you can be sure you are receiving the best possible help and advice from our family law team, who share a wealth of experience across one of the largest areas of legal practice.

We strive to make your case as stress-free as possible by keeping you well informed and minimizing any unnecessary problems that may arise. Most importantly, we are dedicated to ensuring we get the best results for you as our client, while giving the appropriate legal consideration to the needs of any dependents, vulnerable individuals and third parties whose welfare you are keen to protect.

Some of the things clients have said about Martin include:

Martin Dias advised me today which helped me enormously with very clever ideas which I had not heard from any other lawyer and I have spoken to many lawyers this week and I found the thorough breakdown of a process I need to take, coupled with his obvious professional competence was extraordinary. Totally honest, accessible and definitely the top choice for me.

I recently had a 30-minute free consultation with Martin, and I couldn’t be happier with the service he provided. Martin was friendly, professional, and extremely knowledgeable about family law. He took the time to listen to my concerns and provided me with clear and concise advice on how to proceed with my case. I felt that he genuinely cared about my situation and was committed to helping me find a solution. I would highly recommend Martin to anyone in need of a family solicitor, and I can’t thank him enough for his help!

Divorce and Same-Sex Separation

While mixed-gender marriage and divorce has been around for much longer than civil partnerships, same-sex marriages and separations, the circumstances surrounding the various different processes change over time, and it is important to understand the current regulations and how to apply for a separation agreement, dissolution of a civil partnership, or divorce from a mixed-sex or same-sex marriage.

No matter what your circumstances, we can advise you on your rights and your responsibilities, for example if you have biological or adopted children with your spouse, or children born through surrogacy, which may mean only one of you is a biological parent.

Much of family law is about dealing with disputes over children, parental rights and future residential and visitation arrangements, and it is important for things to remain as amicable as possible to protect both spouses and also the children themselves.

As such, we will always listen to your side of the story and advise as sensitively as possible on anything we think might undermine your claim, as well as on how to proceed in a way that gets you the outcome you want, while also protecting the welfare of your children.

Ancillary Financial Proceedings

Financial disputes are another major aspect of many divorces and separations, and again it is important to keep proceedings as amicable as possible – this time because lengthy legal proceedings can run up considerable court costs and eat into the very finances you are trying to protect.

We can advise on the legality of premarital and prenuptial agreements, both when they are drawn up and when you wish to invoke their terms during a separation.

During divorce and civil partnership dissolution, we can help in terms of valuing assets and calculating the family finances, putting in applications for financial orders, and financial dispute resolution.

At PDA Law, we aim to offer a friendly ear to all enquiries, but especially in family law cases where you may be dealing with the breakdown of a relationship, facing a custody battle, or looking at moving out of the family home.

We have worked with many, many clients going through these kinds of experiences, and we appreciate how challenging a time it can be – which is why we are here to listen first, and then to advise you in the most constructive and progressive way possible.

What Our Customers Say About Us

Quick & Responsive

Honestly I would recommend PDA for any agency/landlord deposit dispute. Jane was such a dream to work with and she got me a good compensation. She was quick and responsive throughout the whole process as well as transparent. She kept me in the loop with all correspondence with the agency/landlord. She also knows her stuff. Would recommend PDA law.

Odette Akoache

They provided us with realistic timescales

It was our first time we dealt with PDA law for our conveyancing. We were recommended to them by the Property agency. We are glad we had a good experience with PDA law, especially during lockdowns and Christmas period. They made sure, they had all the paper-work in place with all searches done in time. They provided us with realistic timescales, so that there is no disappointment towards the end. Looking forward to deal with them in the near future.
