BACK to FAMILY LAW, WILLS & PROBATE
Family-related issues often touch the very heart of our lives. We understand that every family is unique and will face different challenges.
When families feud, nobody wins. Often, the best outcomes for your family are not reached by engaging in vigorously contested proceedings. Unnecessary acrimony between the parties would likely only escalate legal costs and drag the proceedings further, extracting a great emotional toll on everyone. Thus, whenever possible, we encourage mediation and seek to facilitate an amicable settlement between parties.
At Beacon, we strive to assist you with your practical needs and at the same time, care for your emotional needs by taking the time to understand your family and your concerns before advising on the best course of action.
“Life affords no greater responsibility, no greater privilege, than the raising of the next generation.” (C. Everett Koop 1916 – 2013, American pediatric surgeon). Your child’s welfare is of paramount concern to us; be it in a family dispute or in your family’s estate planning. Children often become pawns in family battles. At Beacon, we try as far as possible to conduct the proceedings in a manner that minimises the impact it will have on your children. We also guide you in making decisions to better protect your child’s interests and plan for his or her future.
