Family and Divorce Services

Divorce is never easy. We’ll but we’ll be there to guide you through the process, providing professional, cost-effective advice, with care and sensitivity. Our first priority is always to pursue a non-confrontational dispute resolution to help avoid costly, time-consuming court visits. Of course, if that isn’t possible, we’ll be there to help you take the next steps.

Simplified Divorce Solutions for High-Net-Worth Individuals

If you’re a high-net-worth individual facing a complex divorce case, we can help. We’ll make the divorce process as simple and straight forward as possible, guiding you through key issues, such as business assets, on and offshore assets, inherited wealth, spousal maintenance, and more.

Expertise in Child-Centric Legal Matters

Legal issues involving children can be particularly tough to navigate. We’re experts when it comes to dealing with these cases sensitively and minimising the associated stress. Whether you need support with child arrangement orders, surrogacy, or child abduction, we’re ready and waiting to help.

Prenuptial and Cohabitation Agreements

Prenuptial agreements are becoming increasingly popular amongst couples preparing to tie the knot. A prenup sets out what will happen to your finances and assets in the event you get divorced. Of course, no one wants to think the worst will happen, but a prenuptial agreement will make things a whole lot easier if it does. Our experts will help you draw up an agreement both parties are happy with.

If you live with your partner but aren’t married, you don’t have the same legal rights as married couples. But many cohabiting couples aren’t ready to tie the knot, or don’t ever intend to do so. A cohabitation agreement will protect your interests and assets if you break up in the future.

We ensure every member of our team has high level training on domestic violence, so they can support and protect victims from harm, while acting against abusers. If you’re at risk, we’ll do everything in our power to protect you, moving quickly to apply for a non-molestation order so you are legally safeguarded. If you’re in immediate danger, call the authorities first so they can keep you safe. We’ll then act from a legal perspective to help protect your safety.

Collaborative Law and Mediation in Relationship Endings

Reaching the end of a marriage or civil partnership is never easy. Our collaborative law experts will help you reach an amicable outcome, avoiding the often costly and lengthy traditional divorce process. We’ll help you come to a fair solution that both parties agree on without resorting to court proceedings.

At the end of a relationship, tensions and emotions can run high. Mediation will help you and your partner reach arrangements outside of court. Our trained, experienced mediators will support you both as you discuss your issues and resolve any areas of conflict.

Assisting LGBTQIA Couples and Families

LGBTQIA couples and families deal with many of the same legal issues as heterosexual couples, but there are also specific issues unique to same sex couples. So, if you’re looking for legal advice about an LGBTQIA family issue, it’s important you seek support from an experienced solicitor.
