  Separations and Social Media

From Facebook to Twitter, Snapchat to Instagram, social media is here to stay. Whilst social media is great when things are rosy, it can be very risky when separating.

Millions of people share milestones in their lives on social media. From a promotion to a marriage, happy moments are shared daily. But with the highs come the lows, and social media has become a medium through which individuals vent frustrations and personal issues.

In recent years, social media has become a contentious and influencing factor in many legal disputes following a separation. It is important to be mindful of the broader consequences before using social media as an emotional outlet so problems are not caused during what may be a stressful separation. An angry or emotional outburst online can inflame an already sensitive and volatile situation, particularly when child care issues and/or domestic violence issues are involved.  To read more click here

Elderly Services & Seniors Law Team

Having provided a full range of legal services to the people of Canterbury since 1888 it was a natural progression for Harmans to establish and develop areas of law that will provide their clients with expert advice in an increasingly diversified legal environment.

One such speciality area of law is the Elderly Services and Seniors Law Team, which was formed by Harmans in 1999 to coincide with the International Year of the Older Person.

Over the past 17 years, the Seniors Law Team has built on those early foundations and continues to diversify and grow as the baby boomer generation moves into retirement and the need for specialist legal advice in this area of law rapidly increases.  To read more click here


We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Kind regards

The team at Harmans
