Lidia Cantele advises on all aspects of family law with a particular focus on divorce and dealing with spouses’ financial claims against each other, whether through court proceedings or in a more collaborative manner outside of litigation. Lidia has experience obtaining emergency injunctions for clients that are at risk from their spouse.
Lidia also acts for parents in legal issues relating to children, for example applications for child arrangement orders regulating children’s living arrangements, obtaining financial provision for the child of an unmarried mother from the child’s fathers, and obtaining parental orders for the parents of children born via surrogacy arrangements abroad.
Lidia drafts and negotiates agreements which regulate the financial ties on the breakdown of their relationships, to include pre- and post-nuptial agreements for spouses, and cohabitation agreements for unmarried partners.
Lidia’s clients come from a wide range of professional backgrounds, including media, finance, fashion, sport and those with complex global business interests.
Lidia trained at Harbottle, and qualified into the family department in March 2013.
Lidia is a member of Resolution and YRes.
