Divorce & Separation

Contact our experienced solicitors for expert legal guidance and support to enable you to understand your legal position and achieve the best outcome for you.

We recognise that you may not be ready to start divorce proceedings or you may want your divorce to proceed as quickly as possible. We will discuss your individual needs with you and advise you on the law relating to divorce and the ways in which financial agreements reached can be made legally binding. We understand that you may be reluctant to involve solicitors when an agreement has been reached. However it is in everyone’s interests to resolve the issues so that you can move on with your lives.

As well as specialising in resolving financial issues we have a wealth of experience in dealing with the arrangements for children. Previously called custody and access, residence and contact orders and now child arrangements orders, whilst court proceedings are sometimes necessary we can provide you with advice on alternative ways to avoid the cost and uncertainty of court hearings. We help and support you whether you choose to deal with as much as possible yourself, to attend mediation, to use the collaborative process or if necessary to obtain a decision from the court or an arbitrator.

We also regularly consider and help with resolving child maintenance disputes, whether you require advice with regard to the amount of child maintenance that you should be paying or receiving. Maintenance payments for children can be dealt with by the Child Maintenance Service (formerly the Child Support Agency) or an agreed order can be made when resolving finances on divorce. We can advise you on your options and which best suits your circumstances.
