Meinir Wyn Jones is a leading lawyer within the Family Team at Harrisons with over 9 years post qualification experience. She is also a member of Resolution.

Meinir is committed to assisting couples resolve issues of conflict arising as a result of their divorce or separation. Family Law involves advising on all of the significant judgements that a party needs to make with regard to their children and finances and often their business at the time of the separation. In addition there can be complex multi jurisdictional issues arising as a result of international marriages or assets retained in alternative jurisdictions. Meinir has extensive experience in these matters.

Many couples who are separating wish to avoid going to court and as a result as a firm we are also committed to offering family mediation and collaborative law as a means of alternative dispute resolution. Both provide a framework to enable parties to make their own decisions with regard to significant issues affecting them but whilst providing guidance and advice throughout the process. If court is unavoidable we also have the strength and expertise to guide parties through the litigation process from the smallest of disputes to the most contentious and our team has expertise in dealing with multi jurisdictional issues, the dissipation of assets overseas, applications made in relation to leave to remove children from the jurisdiction and at times emergency applications requiring the court to make an order to freeze assets which may be at risk of dissipation. Our team has experience in dealing with low level claims to those where the assets in dispute run into many millions.

Should the need arise Harrisons are able to advise on all aspects of Social Services interventions where children are concerned and fostering and adoption.

Whatever your circumstances Harrisons are committed to help you resolve your family problems.
