Divorce & Family Law
Divorce or relationship breakdown can be a stressful and emotional time. You have important decisions to make about your future, your children, your finances and maybe even your business.
Our divorce and family law solicitors can help you decide what is right – personally, legally and financially – for you and your family.
We can help not only with divorce and separation, but also with other family law issues such as pre-marital agreements, child abduction and agreements for couples who live together outside of marriage.
Divorce & Relationship Breakdown
If your relationship has broken down and you are facing a divorce or separation, you may be feeling anxious, angry and confused.

Child Custody, Access & Maintenance
If you and your partner are going through a divorce or separation and you have children, it’s natural to worry about how they will be affected. How will they feel? How will it affect them at school, or in later life? More immediately, who will they live with and when will they see their other parent?
We understand that divorce and separation can be very difficult to come to terms with, especially when children are involved. We have years of practical and legal experience in this area and can help you reach an agreement that works best for both you and your children.
What was once known legally as child custody is now referred to as residence. We still refer to it as custody here as this is the language used by most of our clients. Regardless of the terminology, you can be sure that our specialist children lawyers can offer expert advice on the issues that you and your family are facing.
Our specialist children lawyers can support you and offer expert advice on a range of issues that will affect you and your children, including:
- Where children should live
- Who the children should see and when (known as ‘contact’)
- Financial claims for child maintenance, including for school fees and housing costs
- Relocation (both in the UK and overseas)
- Change of name, school and other specific issues
If you are a grandparent, and are worried about what will happen to your relationship with your grandchildren as a result of the separation, we can give you expert advice based on our experience in handling cases involving:
- Child arrangements
- Adoption orders
