Divorce and Family

There can be no time more stressful than the breakdown of a marriage. Having the right legal expert by your side can reduce the time it takes for a divorce to be finalised and hopefully secure a more favourable financial outcome. If children are involved, you will want to make sure that they are properly provided for and appropriate access is agreed.

We will always try and help you achieve an amicable settlement where possible and, if possible, look to having the matter resolved through mediation. Out of court settlements, where they can be agreed, are generally cheaper and quicker than contested divorces. Where settlement terms cannot be agreed we can provide effective representation during the court process.

Whether your divorce settles amicably or is contested you can count on us looking after your interests throughout the process and making it as stress free as possible; we are pragmatic, but we are also hard negotiators when it is called for. We can assist where there are complex financial arrangements and where there are international elements to your divorce or separation.

We can help you across the range of all family matters including:

  • Divorce including financial settlements and child arrangements
  • Civil Partnership dissolution
  • Separation Agreements
  • Unmarried couple’s rights and cohabitation agreements
  • Child abduction
  • Pre and postnuptial agreements
