The breakdown of a marriage or relationship is one of the most traumatic and upsetting times of your life.
At such an emotionally vulnerable time, it's important to seek expert legal advice. Our experienced and sympathetic team will give you clear and comprehensive advice throughout the process.
Whatever your relationship problem, we can support you in a wide range of ways. Our specialist areas include:

If you have children and you’re going through a separation, the first thing you will need to decide is which parent/ guardian your children should live with, and what level of contact your children should have with the non-resident parent. If you are unable to agree this, then you may need to submit an application via the Court.
To avoid involvement with the Court, we will attempt to resolve any issues surrounding contact and where your child should live by negotiating with all parties concerned. It’s vital that any arrangements which are agreed or reached are in the interests of your child. Our experienced team pride themselves on the support and assistance they can provide you through this difficult process.
As members of the Resolution and the Children Panels, our team have the expertise and experience to help you through this difficult time.
