One of the most distressing times in a person’s life is during and after the breakdown of a personal relationship, which is usually accompanied by anxiety and uncertainty caused by this change, along with financial concerns.  The solicitors in our Family Law Department offer objective and sensitive advice based on many years experience, including collaborative law accreditation. The Family Law team prides itself on expertise in the following areas:- 

  1. Pre-nuptial, separation and cohabitation agreements
  2. Divorce, civil partnership and cohabitation proceedings
  3. Financial consequences arising from the above, including emergency applications, variation, enforcement, appeals and any jurisdictional matters that arise
  4. Children matters: contact and residence disputes, leave to remove from the jurisdiction, mirror orders, parental orders in respect of international surrogacy arrangements
  5. Protecting individuals who have suffered harassment, violence, and those who have been forced into a marriage without their consent

Our department’s approach aims to put clients at ease and to make sure that the advice given allows clients to make sound, informed decisions. We will always look to resolve issues by amicable negotiation, which we consider to be the most constructive and cost efficient method.  However, we do recognise the need to be proactive and take appropriate and proportional steps to protect the interests of our clients.

Our family solicitors are members of Resolution (Solicitors Family Law Association)

They are also accredited Collaborative Family Law Practitioners, and can provide clients with this alternative to Court proceedings.
