Family/Child Law

The Family & Child Law Committee of the Law Society has produced a useful handbook and Code of Practice for Family Law in Ireland.

Family Law Handbook 

The handbook highlights the professional responsibilities of solicitors for solicitors acting in family law cases. It also provides useful information on issues including:

  • The solicitor-client relationship
  • Children
  • A survival plan for parents
  • Dispute resolution
  • Court proceedings

The Law Society recommends that all solicitors practising family law should follow this Code as a point of reference.

Talk to your solicitor

Family law is complex, and the decisions that you make during separation or divorce proceedings will have a lasting effect on your life.

If you are involved in a family law matter, we recommend that you speak with a solicitor who has the expertise to help you.
