Family Law Portal

Hello and welcome to our Family Law Portal  

Our experienced family law team pride themselves on offering a quality service coupled with practical advice to support you through this challenging time. A core consideration throughout our services is the welfare of any children involved. We aim to achieve your legal redress whilst reducing the emotional effects on you and your family.

Ultimately we are experts in dispute resolution and mediation. We are committed to productive negotiation and cost-effective solutions, aimed at achieving the best result possible for you. We have particular expertise in estates involving homes given our extensive heritage in property law.

Divorce , Separation and Finances

If your marriage breaks down you may be entitled to pursue a divorce or it may be that your spouse has already pursued proceedings.If Court proceedings prove necessary, our considered, focused and no-nonsense approach will maximise the chance of securing a favourable result. Our highly experienced lawyers can advise you on:


  • Divorce and separation
  • Financial claims
  • Cohabitation
  • Pre-nuptial and pre-civil partnership agreements
  • Arrangements for children
  • Injunctions and emergency remedies

Children and Parental Disputes

Working out what is best for the children when a relationship or marriage ends can be extremely difficult for all parties involved. We handle every matter involving children with maximum sensitivity, our core approach being the mental health of our clients and their children separates us from other law firms.

Every family is different so requires a unique approach to ensure that the children’s best interests are protected, their well-being considered, and their various needs are addressed. It is usually best for your family if any disputes involving your children can be resolved through agreement between you and your partner, and ideally through mediation rather than the stress, formality and cost of the Courts.

However unfortunately sometimes Court is necessary and there are many types or orders available such as Child Arrangements Orders, Parental Responsibility Orders, Specific Issue Orders, Prohibited Steps Orders and Special Guardianship Orders.

We are experienced in all types of issues involving children and will always work to safeguard their interests whether disputes over paternity, living arrangements, access (by parents or grandparents), schooling, maintenance, relocation or parental alienation.

Domestic Violence

Everyone has the right to live without fear for their safety. If you are the victim of domestic violence, our team can help to protect you and your family through a non molestation order, occupation order or otherwise. It is important to work with a law firm you can trust and your relationship with our friendly, approachable and sympathetic advisors is of paramount importance. We have dealt with a range of domestic violence cases and will work with sensitivity and understanding to help you resolve your situation as quickly as possible.

Our highly experienced lawyers can advise you on:

  • Apply for a court order to protect you from violence, threats of violence and harassment
  • Apply for a court order to stop a person entering or coming near your home
  • Work to protect your children
  • Resolve any financial issues
  • Divorce from a partner who has been abusive

We can sort out financial matters or childcare arrangements on your behalf, if you do not wish to deal directly with your partner. We also provide access to a range of professional organisations offering support and advice to those who have experienced domestic violence (such as Hestia and Rights of Women), helping you and your family to heal and move forward.
