Separation & Divorce Solicitors
Divorce or separation from a partner is often one of the most difficult periods in someone’s life. Our team of separation and divorce solicitors provide family law expertise and practical legal advice to help you find a way forward that is cost-effective and sensitive to your needs.
We understand that each case is personal and seldom straightforward. Fortunately, we are equipped to deal with your individual circumstances, whatever they may be.
We deal with a wide range of complex divorce and separation cases, many of which involve highly technical points of law, jurisdictional issues or complicated financial circumstances. This could involve anything from trusts, companies or farms to child protection issues or maintenance.
We will always strive to avoid court proceedings wherever possible and encourage a fair settlement. Members of our team are also Collaborative Lawyers who can use round-table meetings to resolve issues in your case.
However, should court be unavoidable, we have solicitors with many years of litigation experience on hand to deal with the most complex of applications.
Our lawyers have a strong track record of success advising high net worth individuals with complex asset structures, such as business owners and sports professionals.
If you need to speak to someone in confidence about your matter, get in touch via this site or call the team on 01772 258 321 and we will be pleased to help.
We listen carefully to what you tell us and our separation and divorce solicitors give you specialist advice on:
- Divorce and separation
- Same sex couples
- Financial, property and asset disputes
- Pre-nuptial contracts
- Cohabitation contracts
