The breakdown of family relationships can sometimes cause a great deal of stress and emotion, particularly in cases involving children. This can be a challenging period for everyone. We recognise this and our family lawyers are supportive and will give clear and constructive advice to our clients on the options at this time. Our family lawyers are members of Resolution which means that they are committed to promoting a constructive approach to family issues that considers the needs of the whole family.

Our family law department are experienced and have an in-depth understanding of all areas of family law. We understand that a sensitive approach, whilst offering a pro-active solution is vital. We can assist you through the process of mediation, if that is suitable for your needs. Where an amicable solution is not possible, our family lawyers can guide you through the court process, or, talk to you about alternative methods of resolution including arbitration and private court proceedings.

We offer the following services: 

  • Divorce proceedings
  • Seperation agreements
  • Financial matters arising from divorce and separation
  • Child Arrangements including parenting plans
  • Cohabitation agreements
