Whether our clients are drafting pre-nuptial contracts, negotiating separation agreements, or engaged in divorce litigation, Owen Bird’s family lawyers provide practical advice and determined advocacy throughout the commencement and breakdown of a marriage or personal relationship. We are focused on preserving our clients’ business and personal assets in a cost-effective manner.

Individuals entering into long-term relationships and who are seeking certainty around their financial affairs retain Owen Bird’s lawyers to draft cohabitation and marriage agreements. If a couple separates, we use our extensive experience with complex financial issues to negotiate division or exclusion of family assets, businesses and debts, as well as child support, spousal support and parenting arrangements. Should negotiations fail, our experienced lawyers aggressively pursue our clients’ interests in court proceedings involving property, parenting, and guardianship arrangements.

Owen Bird’s family lawyers also work closely with leading counsel in the firm’s wealth preservation, tax, and corporate practice groups to ensure that our clients receive the best advice for all their personal and family concerns.
