The welfare of your children is the most important concern you’ll face during your divorce or separation. We’ll help you find the best possible solution to protect their wellbeing.

How we help you

We’re here to safeguard the best interests of your children, while offering support and guidance throughout the whole process.

We know that every case is different. That’s why we tailor our services to suit your individual needs.

Through mediation and collaborative law, our family law solicitors and mediators can help you reach a fair outcome without the need for legal proceedings. Where that’s not possible, we’ll work hard to secure the right solution for your children. Our kind and understanding approach will make sure everything runs as smoothly and amicably as possible.

"One day you’re going to have to stand up and watch your children get married. How you choose to deal with this now will determine whether it’ll be a happy day or one fraught with tension.

What's mediation? 

This is a cheaper and more amicable way of settling the issue regarding your children without the need to go to court. As part of mediation, you and your partner will meet regularly with one of our solicitor-mediators, who'll help you talk through your dispute between yourselves with the view to reaching a fair and appropriate agreement.

Once you're both agreed, we'll help you draw up a formal document that sets out the agreement you've made.
