• Our dedicated team of family law solicitors can support you through important decisions about the future of your family.

    We can advise on all areas of family law, from cohabiting and prenuptial agreements, to divorces and arrangements for children.

    To help you understand your legal options at the start of the process, we offer a free 15-minute discussion about our services, or an initial one-hour consultation at a fixed fee of £150 + VAT. You can book an appointment online.

    Why choose our family law and divorce solicitors?

    Our clients often come to us during an emotional and difficult time. Our family law experts understand that a sympathetic yet practical approach is needed to help you move forward.

    We work closely with you to understand your priorities and concerns so that we can give you the best advice for your circumstances.

    We will help you to explore the options open to you and act in the most efficient way possible to minimise the impact of this stressful period.

    All our solicitors are members of Resolution, a national family law group committed to resolving issues in a constructive, non-confrontational way. This means that, where possible, we try to help our clients to resolve their disputes by agreement. This can include using mediation or collaborative law.

    We have a particular specialism in dealing with high financial value divorces and in providing expert advice where children are involved.
