We will guide you every step of the way as we know how daunting it can be to take the first step to talk to a lawyer about your problems.

Please click on the services listed below to find out more on how we can help you.

Divorce and Separation

Relationship breakdown is an extremely emotional time and questions over agreeing child arrangements, money worries and other financial issues. In some cases there is the issue of domestic abuse. We are here to advise and support you throughout the process.


Known formally as “ancillary relief”, this is where the assets of the marriage need to be divided and often causes the most upset.

We can help you negotiate an agreement regarding the family home, your savings or investments, debt, pension sharing and the family business.

We can advise as to whether a Clean Break is right for you or whether the divorce settlement should provide for ongoing maintenance.

If it becomes necessary to start Court proceedings we will guide you through the process of beginning the case, dealing with preliminary hearings and any final hearing, with our aim being always to reach a settlement as soon as we can.

We also have experience of high net worth matters with client having assets of several million.

Pre-Nuptial Agreements

Before getting married you and your future husband / wife or civil partner may want to consider an agreement on how your joint assets and assets accrued prior to marriage are to be distributed in the event of a breakdown in your marriage.

These type of agreements are called pre-nuptial agreements and can protect pre marriage assets, inheritance, business interests and other financial considerations.


We can assist you to make the best arrangements for your children.

We can help resolve issues such as child residence., spending time with your child and child maintenance. We also have experience of dealing with specific issues such as schooling, medical treatment and other welfare issues for the child which must be agreed jointly.

In cases where one parent wishes to move away from the area, or abroad with the child, we can assist with a prohibited steps application.
