Family Law at Callan Tansey

At Callan Tansey Solicitors we understand that the breakup of a relationship can be one of the most traumatic events in a person’s life. While we cannot change your circumstances we can ensure that this event is dealt with in a sensitive and sympathetic manner and ensure that you are advised of your legal rights and obligations under Irish legislation.

Marital breakdown impacts everyone in the family unit. We are acutely aware of this and work hard to find solutions which facilitate the minimum impact on the lives of children involved. Our goal is to implement mediated and negotiated agreements for our clients and will only pursue your matter through the courts when all other non-contentious avenues have been exhausted.

We will work with actuaries and forensic accountants to deal with complex financial arrangements and pensions and will advise you of the impact of such on you in lay mans terms.

Our services include the following:-

  • Separation Agreements
  • Judicial Separation
  • Divorce/ Consent Divorce
  • Nullity
  • Co-habitation/non marital relationships
  • Division of assets
  • Maintenance
  • Guardianship
  • Custody
  • Access
