We recognise that Divorce is a stressful time. We aim to provide sensitive and confidential advice to set the right tone for negotiations to achieve the best outcome for you and your family. Our team is experienced in navigating you through the legal process and exploring alternatives. We have strong links with counsellors, mediators and independent financial advisers to provide you with extra support.


When relationships break down we recognise that your priority is to minimise the impact on your children. We are recognised as specialists in Children Act disputes including where the children should live, how contact arrangements will work and ensuring contact is maintained with the wider family including grandparents. The child’s welfare is the court’s paramount consideration and we are dedicated to helping you achieve the best outcome for your family. Please contact us for information about our fixed fee scheme.

Child Care

We aim to obtain the protection that you need as quickly as possible if you are the victim of domestic abuse. We have a wealth of experience in applying for emergency orders to protect clients from harassment, threats and physical abuse. We recognise that domestic abuse causes deep anguish. We offer a compassionate and supportive service. Director, Alison Nolan is accredited by the Law Society as an Advanced Practitioner in this field. Please contact us for information about our fixed fee scheme.

Finances on Separation

We provide advice and representation at Court on dividing the assets of your marriage, including the family home, savings, pensions and family businesses. Our emphasis is upon assisting you in reaching an agreement to avoid costly litigation. It is important that you seek advice at an early stage so that we may carefully consider the best way forward for you.

Family Fees

Since 1st April 2013 the availability of Legal Aid has been dramatically reduced. We offer a 15 minute first interview so that a member of our team may advise you about your options. You may still be eligible for Legal Aid, alternatively we are happy to discuss our bespoke fixed fee service.
