Hiring a Divorce Lawyer
Divorce can involve a number of elements which need addressing, from financial remedy, children and living arrangements, division of assets and trusts and pensions.
- Financial remedies: One of the most complex aspects of divorce is agreeing finances and dividing assets. We understand the financial status and independence of two parties can be entirely different, which is why we tailor our approach to each case to ensure your specific financial needs are met during and after the divorce process.
- Children & Living Arrangements: Matters relating to children during divorce can be the most emotional and traumatising aspect of divorce. Our family law solicitors will work closely with you to relieve unnecessary worry and stress involved with the well being of your child(ren). We provide expert legal advice concerning the amount of time your children spend with parents or certain relatives, suspicions or cases of abduction, and if one party would like to take the children to another part of the country or move abroad.

- Division of Assets: Assets differ from case-to-case and can involve business, personal and/or joint assets. We will work with accountants and business advisors if necessary to come to a fair and agreed arrangement. In some cases, personal assets might not be protected during divorce despite legal ownership. However, we provide expert legal advice to ensure you understand your rights, how assets can be fairly divided and help to uncover hidden assets.
- Trusts & Pensions: We provide legal advice when it comes to the division of trusts and pensions. These are valuable assets to have and you will want them to be correctly and fairly divided so you are in a financially comfortable position when you retire. Our experienced divorce lawyers will help to ensure the best possible outcome is achieved. (link to trusts and pensions services)
At the ending of a marriage we offer guidance on:
• Child arrangements, support and visitation
• Asset division
• Property disputes and property litigation
• Court proceedings
• Other issues like domestic violence
Disputes and other matters can add to the anxiety, which can impact upon both parties and their surrounding families. It is imperative that your family, including children, are taken care of and we are here to take the stress off your shoulders.
