Divorce and Separation

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.
