Matrimonial &
Family Matters

Marital breakdown can often be the most traumatic experience in a person’s life and impacts upon the whole family. We have an experienced and mature marital team.  Dealing with the legal aspects of family breakdown requires knowledge of the law and an understanding and tactful approach. Our lawyers are sympathetic and experienced in dealing with clients who may be in an emotionally fragile state.

At the outset we will work with you to establish the facts, advise on the legal position and identify the issues involved in dealing with your case. We will also help you to devise a strategy for dealing with the case. This will cover projection of the likely costs, the funding options, likely timescale and terms and method upon which settlement should be sought. We settle most of our cases through negotiation and a well drawn strategy is often fundamental to achieving this.

Where required, we have in depth experience of the full range of court processes for resolving family disputes and will also advise you on alternative resolution methods such as mediation or conciliation.

  • Divorce and the breakdown of civil partnerships
  • Financial aspects
  • Ancillary relief including high value
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Cohabitation
