Divorce & Family Law
Divorce or relationship breakdown can be a stressful and emotional time. You have important decisions to make about your future, your children, your finances and maybe even your business.
Our divorce and family law solicitors can help you decide what is right – personally, legally and financially – for you and your family. Independent legal guides recognise us as one of the UK’s leading family law teams, so you can be sure you’re in safe hands.
We can help not only with divorce and separation, but also with other family law issues such as pre-marital agreements, child abduction and agreements for couples who live together outside of marriage. Our lawyers are based throughout the country, with offices in Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Leeds, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield and Southampton. We also have a consulting office in Middlesbrough.
