For life overseas. With our seal of approval.

Partner | Head of Family Law
Bell and Buxton’s family law team is headed by Demelza Wrigley. Demelza is a highly experienced and well-regarded Sheffield family law solicitor who won the Family Law Award at the 2017 Yorkshire Legal Awards.
Demelza and her team specialise in all family law matters and pride themselves on being legally knowledgeable, accessible and ready to fight your case. They take the time to understand what you want to achieve and work hard to achieve the best resolution for you and your family.
We have a reputation for working with clients to resolve a wide range of family law issues, from pre-nuptial agreements to more specialist areas involving same-sex relationships and foreign jurisdictions. Whilst we try to keep disputes out of court where ever possible, sometimes this is unavoidable, and we have experience of taking complex and difficult cases to the Court of Appeal.
We offer all clients a free initial appointment and have a range of fixed fee ‘divorce only’ packages to suit all budgets and requirements.
Transparency on the issue of legal fees is guaranteed, with clear costs breakdowns provided from the outset and throughout the duration of your case.
"A first-class service at all times over a four-year period. Highly professional, reputable and informative."
“Thank you Bell & Buxton for helping my daughter move into her new home. It was a ‘bit of a marathon’ for us and your team successfully helped us through what was an unusually difficult process.”
- Mike Peat
First impressions at reception were very friendly and helpful and very caring on leaving. The offer of coffee was most welcome. The understanding by Mr Sissons of the situation was to the point and any aspect that could cause unforeseen (by me) problems was soon spotted.
“Thank you for all your assistance regarding our deed of family arrangement. You were all very professional and thorough which made it all a lot easier to understand and complete."
"As ever, John proffered excellent advice and guidance in this matter. Bell & Buxton are now my 'go-to' for any legal requirements. I can (and do) rely on Bell & Buxton to provide an outstanding service. Bell & Buxton does not disappoint."
