Divorce and Separation


We remain fully open to help with family law issues during the current global outbreak of the Coronavirus, COVID-19. All of our family law solicitors are working as normal using remote access technology and we can arrange appointments by telephone and video call, as an alternative to face to face meetings. We can also arrange appointments outside of normal working hours, as we understand the lockdown can make it even harder than usual to consult solicitors on sensitive family law matters

In line with current government advice, our offices in Petersfield and Midhurst remain open and operational although we are operating with a reduced staff level on the ground and only able to admit to our offices clients who have pre-booked an appointment. All of our lawyers have access to secure cloud based technologies for emails and telephone calls and video conferencing, which enable them to work remotely and conduct meetings accordingly.

You can continue to contact us, as normal, by phone, email and video conferencing and where essential pre-book a face to face meeting in the office. We remain fully committed to delivering a high level of client service, tailored to your individual needs.

The breakdown of any relationship is painful, whether  you are married or living together. When you know   it is finally over, getting impartial, professional advice is important, both in practical terms, and in helping you both to move on with your lives.

Our Family Law team is highly experienced in the legal and financial complexities of divorce and separation. We can discuss your various options, including mediation, and the financial implications, particularly how assets such as properties, businesses and pensions are divided. This is particularly crucial if  you have been cohabiting, as the law surrounding separation is less clear-cut than the divorce laws for married couples. And though this can feel like a very lonely experience, we will make sure you get all the professional and emotional support you need.
