We cover all aspects of legal work which arise not only when relationships break down but also when they develop and might require a more formal footing such as in the form of a cohabitation or a pre-nuptial agreement.

Our expertise includes marriage and civil partnership dissolution, arrangements for how children spend their time living in separate households, financial arrangements between separating couples (married, civil partnership or unmarried) for themselves and for children and personal protection orders and injunctions.

Our wide range of experience allows us to adapt to your individual needs whether that is to support you through the court process alongside a mediated agreement or to conduct the litigation and deal with complex factual and legal issues on your behalf.

Everyone’s experience of relationship breakdown is unique and the service we offer is aimed to be personal and adapted to meet your individual needs.

We do not operate a public funded service nor do we undertake public law Children Act applications.
