Our experienced Family Team are committed to working in a non-confrontational manner so that divorce proceedings can progress as smoothly as possible. We seek to agree as much as possible in order to reduce the cost both emotionally and financially.
We can provide practical and clear advice as to how to deal with the particular circumstances of the breakdown of the marriage or relationship. No two couples or families are the same and different problems require different solutions.
All our senior family lawyers have between 15 and 34 years of experience in finding appropriate solutions: sometimes we need to go straight to Court; more often we can find a fair and sensible plan, which will save both financially and emotionally. Our aim is to give clients friendly, fair and objective advice and to provide a reliable guide at a difficult time in their life.
The Family Team are offering an initial free half hour consultation to new clients during which we can discuss your situation and objectives. If you would like to take some initial advice on your family matters then please telephone 01285 650000 and ask to speak to a member of the Family Team.
