Please use the site as a starting point in your search for information in relation to Family Law issues in Cork and Ireland.
A relationship breakdown will have serious legal and financial implications for both parties and we advise on the financial relief orders available including maintenance, property adjustment, lump sum, financial compensation and pension adjustment orders. In circumstances where a spouse, civil partner or ex-spouse has died we can advise on applications for family provision under the Succession Act.
We advise foster parents on matters concerning “guardianship” for their children and related matters for children in their care under a Court Care Order.

Where there are concerns for the welfare of an individual we advise on injunction proceedings for barring, protection and safety orders.

We advise parents on matters concerning their children, including access, custody, guardianship, paternity, adoption and maintenance issues. We also advise parents involved with the HSE and care applications through the Courts.

If the parties are not married we advise cohabitees on legal issues, including drafting pre-nuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements and dealing with property disputes on relationship breakdown.
Ken Heffernan, Family Law and Divorce Solicitor, is experienced in dealing with these issues and can apply the legal requirements and formalities to your particular case so as to advise you appropriately for your circumstances whether you are in Cork or elsewhere in Ireland. We understand each client’s circumstances are different and can arrange an appointment for you at a time and place convenient for yourself including evenings and weekends where appropriate.
