Family law

Asters provides a full range of services in the area of family law to Ukrainian and foreign clients, including legal counseling, drafting of various contracts concerning family matters and inheritance. We assist in negotiations and alternative dispute resolution, including mediation, represent clients before courts and government agencies, and concern ourselves with execution of court judgments.

Our lawyers are always conscious of the unique nature of this practice, parties' significant emotional involvement into the process as well as profound impact of legal decisions on the client's life. That is why they approach each client and each situation individually and offer the most efficient solution.

Family law practice is often not limited to strictly family matters. As a full-service law firm Asters is in a position to offer its clients vast expertise of its lawyers from other practices, including corporate, tax and real estate law, to solve complex family law problems. This allows us to comprehensively analyze each case and find a holistic solution. Furthermore, for the benefit of our clients, we closely cooperate with foreign law firms to create seamless cross-border experience for our clients.

Competent and timely legal advice on family law matters saves mental energy, time and money, allows to avoid escalation of conflict at an early stage, and even find a peaceful solution without bringing the conflict to the critical point.
