Family law - how we can help you


Family law provides the legal framework
for dealing with all legal situations relating to relationships with partners, cohabitants (either same sex or opposite sex) and married couples.

Finding quality family law solicitors

It is important to find family law solicitors that you can trust to do the best for you and your family. We work with hundreds of family law solicitors around the UK, and will find the best solicitor for you based on your preferences.

Specialist family lawyers

We have a strong and very experienced network of specialist family law solicitors covering a wide spectrum of family law matters. Many of our solicitors are experienced in dealing with both national and international clients. For example, some of our family law solicitors specialise in international child abduction.

Family mediation and collaborative law

We can also offer alternative methods of dispute resolution such as mediation and collaborative family law services for clients who would rather try to resolve matters without having to go through the court system. Collaborative family law services aim to resolve things through structured, regular face-to-face meetings between both sides. If you would like to read more about mediation please go to our mediation page.

Specialist areas of family law:

The most common matters our family law solicitors advise on include (but not restricted to):

  • Prenuptial / postnuptial agreements
  • Cohabitation agreements or disputes
  • International family law
  • Issues relating to unmarried/same sex couples
  • Annulments
  • Divorce (contested and uncontested), separation and financial issues
  • Family businesses and trusts
