How Our Family Law Solicitors Can Help

Family Law Services


If the time has come for a divorce, you want it to be sorted as soon as possible, as fairly as possible, and with minimum stress and emotion. We’re experienced at making this happen and ensuring you receive the very best family law advice at this difficult time. Find out more about Divorce.

Separation agreements

Separations are sometimes the best thing for your family – and even if you don’t divorce, it allows both parties to continue with their life. A separation agreement sets out exactly how the separation will be conducted, how financial matters will be organised, who will take care of any children and where they will live. It also gives you the freedom to decide if and how much you will support your former partner in a fair and balanced way. Find out more about Separation Agreements.


Family or relationship breakdowns often involve children. Issues may arise around which parent a child will live with, when they will have contact with their non-residential parent, and decisions such as where your child will go to school. Our family solicitors regularly deal with these types of matters and can explain how best to manage them.


If you live with someone, but are not married, it is a good idea to consider a cohabitation agreement. This is an especially good idea if you own a property together or have children – it will provide a solid legal grounding should the relationship dissolve.

Pre-nuptial agreements

A pre-nuptial agreement is a responsible decision to ensure both parties know where they stand and what they’re entitled to in case the worst happens and you divorce. It is decided by you and your partner in advance, and will help to eliminate arguments later down the line. Find out more about Pre-Nuptial Agreements.
