Family and divorce
If you are going through a divorce or separation, you are facing a major life-changing process.
It is essential for you to clearly understand your options and responsibilities before you make any decisions.
Making sense of your situation
Our family law experts can help you make sense of your situation. We give you clear and practical advice on the best steps to follow, whether that is about distributing assets in a fair and sensible way, or making sure the interests of your children are protected.
We can advise you about the various options for reaching agreement, such as mediation or collaborative law, and if it does go to court we do everything possible to ensure a fair outcome.
Breaking the process down into manageable steps
For some people it can be a lot to take in, so our approach is to break things down into steps and take you through a clear and manageable process that removes the unknown and gives you back a sense of control.
