A team who works with you to achieve the best outcome.

Family and Divorce

Our dedicated team of family lawyers will work with you to achieve the best outcome for you and your family. We can advise on all aspects related to family law from pre-nuptial agreements through to divorce.

To help you understand your legal options at the start of the process we offer an initial consultation at a fixed fee of £150 +VAT with a member of our team. Simply contact us on 01622 690691 or email us with your enquiry and we can set up the consultation at a time convenient to you.

We have a particular specialism in dealing with high financial value divorces and have helped many clients with international assets and interests, or where there are complicated estates or business structures. Our family law team also specialise in providing expert advice where children are involved.

We recognise that a relationship breakdown is an emotional and difficult time when a sympathetic yet practical approach is required to help you move forward. We work closely with you to understand your priorities and concerns before helping you to explore the options open to you. We aim to give you the best possible advice for your circumstances and to act in the most pragmatic and efficient way possible to minimise the impact of this stressful period.

All our solicitors are members of Resolution, the national family law group committed to resolving disputes without unnecessary acrimony. Where possible we try to help our clients to resolve their disputes by agreement. We can also offer advice through the Collaborative Law process or by way of mediation as an alternative to the traditional court process as a way of working out a settlement. We can also help resolve matrimonial disputes through the use of Arbitration.

We also advise on the law relating to:
