All about Family Law


If you are considering a divorce, then this can a very stressful time in your life. Our divorce solicitors are able to guide you through the process with professionalism and sensitivity. We offer fixed fees for the simplest cases. Divorce is the legal end to a marriage. Only a court in the UK can grant a divorce, however this process often does not require you to attend court. Our divorce solicitors can handle the case for you.

Child arrangements orders

After a divorce, it is essential that arrangements are put in place that secure the interests of your children. A child arrangement order (CAO) is an order that regulates arrangements for your children.

Cohabitation agreement

Sets out terms on how you and your partner will share finances, childcare and other important things during your period of living together.


Sorting out the finances after a divorce can be one of the most difficult arrangements to agree. Either spouse or civil partner can make an application to court to resolve financial disputes arising from divorce or civil partnership dissolution. The person making the application is the applicant and the other person is the respondent.

Separation agreement

People who are already married or in a civil partnership can enter into a written agreement setting out what they intend to happen to their money, property and other practical issues as a consequence of their current or planned separation. This written agreement is called a separation agreement. Separation agreements are usually entered into by parties who are separating, but who do not want to divorce or dissolve their civil partnership at that time, perhaps for religious or practical reasons. 

Spousal maintenance

When separating or divorcing from your partner, you may be entitled to receive from, or you may have to pay, maintenance. These payments referred to as spousal maintenance, are part of a financial settlement agreement on separation.

Prenuptial agreements

A pre-nuptual agreement is entered into by a couple planning to enter a marriage or civil partnership. Pre-nuptial agreements detail what the parties intend to happen to their money and property if their marriage or civil partnership were to end.
