Helping you think clearly and make the right decisions when you are facing divorce, separation or an issue regarding your children
Going through a divorce or separation can be a difficult time, when it’s hard to put your emotions to one side. Staying calm and following a step by step process will give you back a sense of control. Our experienced and respected family law team will help you try to resolve issues using all available options, including mediation, arbitration and the courts. They will guide you through crucial decisions and do everything possible to ensure the right outcome.
Peace of mind
Going through a divorce or separation can feel like a life-changing process. It can be difficult to keep your rational thoughts separate from your emotions, and when friends make well-meaning suggestions they may actually cloud the issue. It’s important to be able to step back, stay calm and be objective, and this is where having the support of an experienced family and divorce solicitor from our team is invaluable.
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, and help you clearly understand your options and responsibilities before you make any decisions.
Our team are committed to helping you resolve matters amicably but if this is not possible they offer strategic planning and robust preparation for court proceedings. You will feel supported throughout the process.
Making the process more manageable
Dealing with a divorce or separation can seem like a lot to take in. There are many aspects involved, such as making sure your children’s interests are protected or distributing assets fairly and sensibly. It can be even more complicated if one or both of you has a business. Our approach is to break things down into steps, and take you through a logical, manageable process.
You can trust our approach, compassion and experience. Our family law team is recommended by Legal 500, the independent legal directory, as an “excellent, proactive and responsive practice.” Our solicitors have additional qualifications such as mediation and collaborative law so we are particularly skilled at helping you work through your differences, to find a more amicable and less confrontational resolution. We’ll help you feel positive and in control again.
