Family & Relationships
Dealing with divorce or the end of a relationship
Our experienced and dedicated Family and Relationships team are very aware that the decision to divorce or end a relationship is never taken lightly and can be one of the most traumatic periods of your life.
Yet today, one in three 1st marriages ends in divorce, as do two in three 2nd marriages. You may have to go through a legal process, as well as dealing with all the emotions involved in the breakdown of your relationship. For many, there are also financial implications and the effects on any children involved.
Difficult as it may seem, people do survive and it is our job to help you do so.
How we can help
Our Family and Relationships team has extensive experience of advising and representing clients in all types of family matters including divorce, co-habitee disputes, children and financial agreements.
We aim to provide sympathetic and no-nonsense professional advice, tailored to your individual circumstances and requirements and are used to advising clients in difficult emotional situations. We offer prompt and practical advice on how to cope with problems and resolve them.
The solicitors in the firm have all acted for clients from many different backgrounds, varied circumstances and cultures, in divorce, separation, and the far-reaching financial and other consequences of relationship breakdown.
How we operate
We take a conciliatory approach towards relationship breakdown. If your case is suitable, we will always recommend mediation as a way to a speedy, amicable resolution. Mediation enables you to sit down and discuss your problems with an impartial person. Hopefully you’ll resolve them without the need to go to court, which can be costly and stressful.
If an amicable solution cannot be reached, then we are prepared to be firm and to assist you in seeking the court’s help.
We appreciate that seeking the advice of a solicitor can be worrying at a time when money is tight and we strive to work as cost effectively as possible.
