Family Services

A sympathetic and understanding approach

We will also be tough, when necessary, to achieve a fair result for you

We can advise on all family problems including advice on separation, divorce, dissolution of civil partnerships and other related concerns, such as arrangements for the children and the division of financial assets.

All relationships go through bad times. Effective communication, sometimes through counselling or mediation, can help.  However, there are times when you need expert legal advice.

We will provide you with that advice and assistance on any of the following:


The first part of our role is to encourage and facilitate communication and reconciliation. We will explore with you solutions to problems that threaten the relationship. Whilst we do not provide a counselling service, we can help you to resolve issues and refer you to a specialist service for help, if appropriate.

Unfortunately, it is not always possible to prevent the breakdown of a relationship. Whether married or living together, the thought of a possible separation tends to lead to many questions and concerns. We are here to answer them. We will provide you with initial advice and guide you through every step, including mediation, negotiation and, if necessary, court proceedings.

We offer free initial consultations for most family related issues.  Please ask when booking your appointment.
