Family Law

We provide sound legal advice on all aspects of marital breakdown from divorce to making acceptable arrangements for the children and reaching a fair division of assets. We have experience of resolving issues following family breakdown both through negotiation and, where necessary, court proceedings.

Part of our family law team are accredited members of the Law Society’s Family Law Accreditation scheme. Accreditation acts as a hallmark of expertise that clients can trust.

Our experts are also members of Resolution, a group of family justice professionals. As such, we are committed to working with families and individuals to resolve issues in a constructive way in order to achieve better outcomes for separating families and their children.

A breakdown of a relationship can be a very emotional and stressful situation and it is very important to seek independent legal advice as early as possible.
