Monicka is an associate in our Family team specialising in private law cases involving children, financial disputes within divorce and separation proceedings. She joined Royds Withy King in June 2014.



Over the last 18 months plus, Monicka has been nothing short of fantastic in the way she handled the proceedings. The handling was very professional and the way Monicka has dealt with both has taken a weight off my shoulders in what has both been a very difficult time in my life, thus making it as stress free as possible. I would highly recommend Monicka for what she has done for myself personally and can’t thank her enough.

To all of you and to the rest of the team that worked in the background, a massive thank you. I'll never get tired of saying “we won the case” … I’m a happy daddy looking forward to spending lots of time with his beloved son. Thank you all for your work, time, patience and understanding as well as professionalism and knowledge. Like doctors sometime lawyers do change lives, and both my son and I will remember what you did.

When dealing with such sensitive matters I try to ensure that I have a sympathetic, yet practical approach to achieve the best outcome for everyone, but most importantly the children involved. I believe in building good relationships with clients and communicating the law in simple, plain English to make the process as clear as possible.

17 February 2016

If you’re living with your partner (often referred to as cohabiting) without being married, you may be under the mistaken belief that you are known as a ‘common law husband and wife.’ It is actually a myth that if you are living with your partner, no matter how long for, that you have the same legal rights as married couples do.
