Overview Can we help?

The ending of a marriage can be a distressing time whatever the circumstances and it's important at such a difficult time to understand your position and to discuss your options with an experienced family law specialist.

We will guide you through the process in a clear and cost-effective way, advising on your rights, drafting the necessary paperwork and liaising with the court on your behalf. If you have been served with a divorce petition, we can deal quickly with this on your behalf to protect your interests.

If you are unsure about whether or not to bring divorce proceedings, we will be able to advise you on what other options might be available to you including judicial separation and separation agreements. As part of the process we will also discuss matrimonial assets and liabilities with you.   

The greatest consideration with any divorce proceeding is how it will affect your children.  If you have children under the age of 18 our team will work with you to design a living arrangement that brings the maximum stability and security for your children.

We will offer sensitive, constructive and cost-effective legal advice. All our lawyers are members of Resolution and therefore committed to a non-confrontational approach to resolving family problems.
