Meet The Team

The breakdown of any relationship can be a very challenging and difficult time, this is especially true when there are children involved.

When parents separate there are many important decisions that need to be made surrounding the care of children. In some cases, these can be agreed quickly, however disputes can often arise when parents disagree about various arrangements. That’s when its important to get legal advice from an experienced family solicitor who can help you to resolve problems as soon as possible.

Our family lawyers have a wealth of experience in divorce and separation and will help you navigate an agreement to cover a range of issues. These include the custody of children, contact with parents and other family members and financial matters, such as child maintenance.

Using our knowledge, expertise and skill we have a strong reputation for working with clients to resolve disputes through mediation or negotiation, helping families find arrangements that best meet the needs of the children.

If an agreement cannot be reached, you may need a court to make the final decisions for you, this is known as Child Arrangements Orders. The court will always have the welfare of the child as its paramount consideration and it is a general principle that it is better for children to maintain a relationship with both parents. Our experienced team will guide you through the process to help you achieve the best possible outcome for you and your children.
