Marital Breakdown


The breakdown of a marriage can be a very traumatic time for the couple and their family. We at David J. O’Meara & Sons fully understand the sensitive nature of family law litigation, particularly when it relates to children, and feel that it is vital that the client feels listened to and understood.

As with any area of law, it is important that the client is fully advised of all the available options and kept advised of all progress made. We focus on solutions that work for our client in both the short term and long term. There can be a number of different issues requiring resolution in a family law matter and a number of orders can be sought including Property Adjustment Orders, Pension Adjustment Orders, Maintenance Orders, Access Orders, Orders in relation to succession rights and the family home.

We support any attempts to reach a mediated settlement and David O’Meara has trained in the area of collaborative law.

The options available when regularising marital breakdown include Separation Agreements, Judicial Separation, Divorce and Nullity. Applications for Judicial Separation, Divorce and Nullity are brought before the the Circuit Court (or the High Court if the family assets are in excess of approximately €5m).

David J.O’Meara & Sons has extensive experience in these areas at both Circuit Court and High Court level.

We represent family law clients across the Munster region.
