We understand the distress caused by the breakdown of a close personal relationship so our approach to family law is sympathetic and sensitive, yet objective and positive.
Our team of matrimonial and family law solicitors aim to help you resolve matters as quickly and amicably as possible so that you can move on with your life.
Although the tendency in recent times has been to avoid using legal representation, this has led to situations of unfairness because one or other of the parties is not aware of their legal rights. We can help you secure a fair resolution to your relationship breakdown.
Our family law team provides a comprehensive range of family and matrimonial law services including separation, divorce, finances, children, contact arrangements, and grandparents’ rights.
We can also advise you on preventative measures that you can take at the start of a relationship to protect your interests should the relationship subsequently break down. These agreements can be used to protect your current and future assets, such as a possible inheritance, and are particularly beneficial when it's not your first marriage, or if you have a family from a previous relationship.
We encourage the use of alternatives to court in family law as we find this is often the best resolution for all parties, especially when children are involved. When there is no option but to go to court, we will support and guide you through the process.
Our priority is always to get the best result for you. We will make sure we fully understand your situation and use our expertise to obtain the best possible outcome.
Our family law solicitors offer a range of services including:
We will provide you with a detailed estimate of charges at the outset, together with regular cost updates throughout your case.
