Our compassionate Family Law team will provide the best advice and guidance through this emotional time



The breakdown of a family can be a distressing time for you, your partner and your children.

Our compassionate and knowledgeable Family Law team are skilled in providing the best advice and guidance for you through this emotional time.

We appreciate that instructing a solicitor in matters of this nature can be a daunting prospect, however it is very important to seek advice at an early stage in order to avoid potential difficulties in the future. 

We will advise and guide you through every step from drafting the divorce petition to obtaining Decree Absolute. During the process we will consider with you:-

  • The most appropriate ground for divorce – whether this be unreasonable behaviour, adultery, separation or desertion
  • Preparing your divorce petition
  • Dealing with potential issues relating to service and costs
  • Arrangements for your children – regardless of your differences, consideration needs to be given to your children’s happiness and we can help you come to an amicable resolution
  • Assessing your financial circumstances
  • Considering family mediation
  • Applying for and obtaining Decree Nisi
  • Applying for and obtaining Decree Absolute at the appropriate time
