Divorce & Separation

Going through divorce, termination of a civil partnership or separation is a challenging, emotional, and stressful personal situation, and so the last thing you will want to face the additional worry of a long or difficult legal battle with your ex-partner.

We will take that additional worry away, working closely with you to negotiate a fair settlement for you. Where possible we use alternative routes to Court, favouring mediation and collaborative law as ways of finding the best solution for you by agreement, removing the costs and stress of Court Proceedings. Where agreement is not appropriate, our team can advise and support you through Court Proceedings, ensuring you get the outcome you need.

You need to fully understand your choices, as the decisions you make at the time of divorce or separation can have a huge impact on your future. Our team will give you the best advice, explaining your options to you and answering any questions, to allow you to make the decisions which are right for you. We are members of Resolution, and committed to its code of practice.

A range of further information, which can help you to understand the legal considerations involved in divorce and separation, is available in our Legal Resource Centre. Alternatively, click here to download our guide covering ten things to consider when going through a divorce or separation.

You can come and meet with us to discuss your situation, allowing us to really understand your concerns and priorities, in an initial fixed fee meeting. To arrange a meeting, or find out more about how we can support you through a divorce or separation, please contact one of our team here.

Please note that divorce affects gifts left to your ex-spouse in your Will, whereas separation does not, so in both case an update may be needed depending on your situation. Please visit our Inheritance Protection team pages for further information regarding updating your Will.
