Our Family Law Team provides assistance and representation in all aspects of family law related matters and is recommended in Chambers (2016) for handling the breadth of family law issues, including cohabitation, separation and children matters. Please visit our dedicated Family Website thefamilylawsolicitors.co.uk to find out how the team can assist you.

Chambers (2018) describe the team as a 'prominent firm with a robust matrimonial finance and children practice.  Offers both collaborative law and mediation services. Extensive knowledge of farming assets and inherited wealth in the context of divorce and separation.' Andrew Mercer  is esteemed by sources who say: "He is pragmatic and excellent to work with." His clients include farm owners and a range of other professional individuals. Grant Cameron offers clients expertise in highly contentious issues as well as more collaborative and formal mediation proceedings.

Legal 500 (2017) also state that Trethowans LLP has a ‘very professional conduct of cases and immensely supportive approach to clients’. It advises military personnel, business owners and high-net-worth individuals on financial matters, including financial remedy situations, offshore and onshore asset protection, and contested maintenance matters. The practice also has a strong offering in children law issues such as shared arrangement agreements, internal and international relocation orders and Children Act litigation. Practice leader Andrew Mercer is ‘a bright, practical and commercial lawyer’, and Emma Wilders-Pratt ‘combines the perfect balance of strength and determination to get the very best result’.'

Grant Cameron is also listed in both Chambers and Legal 500. Chambers (2016) describe him as "a pleasure to work with - a solicitor with a pleasant and easy manner."

We can help and guide you with the legal aspects that are relevant at the different stages of your life, including:

We offer a FREE half hour meeting at our Salisbury, Southampton, Poole or Winchester offices with one of our family lawyers on all family law related matters. This is an opportunity for you to get an indication of your legal position and also to meet one of our family lawyers.  On this last point, we understand  the sensitivities of family related legal matters and thus the importance of having a family lawyer who you feel comfortable with; that’s why we offer the initial half hour meeting for free.

We also understand that you may need advice outside of ‘normal office hours’ when it is more convenient for you to speak; we offer an ‘out of hour’s service accordingly.
