Divorce Solicitors

Feelings can run high during a relationship breakdown but that does not mean the process of moving forward with your life needs to be filled with conflict and doubt. We know that this can be a difficult time and offer a free 30-minute consultation with our divorce solicitors so you can get to know us and we can advise you on the best way forward for you and the family in the process of a divorce or separation.

As well as deciding who is going to live where and dealing with the practicalities that come with the end of a relationship, many legal issues may also need attention in the case of divorce.  We appreciate everyone is an individual and has different needs.

Our divorce solicitors pride ourselves in offering a variety of approaches to suit you in resolving issues and to help you move on. We will explain the procedure to bring the marriage or civil partnership to an end in a dignified way and offer fixed fee arrangements.

View our Divorce FAQs for answers to some of our frequently asked questions, or contact our legal team today.

Separation Agreements

If you do not wish to start divorce proceedings immediately but are keen to reach an agreement in relation to the finances it is advisable to enter into a Separation Agreement. Whilst not legally binding an Agreement identifies your intentions and can be highly persuasive if there is any later dispute over financial claims.

We can draw on the expertise from within the firm providing you with sound advice on related issues such as tax planning, wills and trusts, property and business matters.

Finances

When a relationship breaks down, finances are often a source of major conflict. We offer practical, pragmatic and sensible advice regarding a range of financial issues.

Whether separating or divorcing, we will advise you as to fair, achievable outcomes concerning the future of the family home; splitting the capital assets; payment of maintenance and pension provision.

If you are worried actions are being taken to prejudice your claims our divorce solicitors can advise you on how best to protect your position. This may involve urgent steps to prevent disposal of assets including court proceedings to freeze assets.

No two cases are alike. Our divorce solicitors can offer specialist advice on a wide range of financial issues involving:

  • High value assets
  • Family businesses and partnerships
  • Farming cases
  • Family trusts
  • Offshore and foreign assets
  • Military personnel
  • Pensions including armed forces pensions
  • Interim maintenance
  • Financial provision for children
