Divorce

Divorce can be one of the most stressful life events that you are ever likely to face, but obtaining good quality legal advice at an early stage is crucial and will help reduce the impact it's having on you and your family.

There is so much to think about if you are considering a separation; the children, financial elements, pensions, homes, what about future plans? - but all of this can be managed and our friendly team of specialist divorce solicitors can guide you through every step of the way.

We work with a broad range of couples across the area who may be going through a separation, thinking about a divorce or you may have received divorce papers. We work with couples whose main concern is the children and the family home, couples who want a speedy no nonsense approach, or others who have family businesses to consider after a lifetime of working together.

Our approach is caring and professional, focused on understanding your individual needs and we are committed to offering you the best legal advice and support. A specialist Divorce and Family Law Solicitor will work alongside you and our team have the knowledge, combined with the expertise to ensure that all your issues are resolved as quickly, constructively and cost-effectively as possible. 

You could need advice on the divorce process, the financial settlement or the arrangements for your children. You may also be worried about whether you can stay in the family home, how you will manage the impact of the divorce on your children, the level of ongoing financial support you are entitled to or whether you need to provide ongoing financial support to your spouse. Whatever your circumstances are, we are here to help you.

You may need advice on these key areas; 

  • The Divorce Process – the legal ending of a marriage
  • Financial Settlements - the division of your assets including your family home, other property, savings, investments, pensions and ongoing financial support, such as child maintenance
  • Children – whilst not strictly part of the divorce process, you may need advice on child arrangements, such as the arrangements for residence (custody) and contact
