Family Law and Divorce Solicitors

Most people need professional advice during a divorce, dissolution of a civil partnership, or permanent separation. As experienced family and divorce lawyers, we recognise that your situation and your particular needs are unique. Whatever your personal or financial circumstances, our aim is always to achieve the very best outcome for you.

You might have complex financial issues to consider – as specialists, our lawyers are able to advise business owners and individuals with high value assets or complex pension arrangements. Where children are involved, you want to ensure they are at the heart of your future arrangements. We appreciate this is a difficult time for you and our focus is on finding the best solution to help you move forward.

What a divorce solicitor does

The Courts encourage separating and divorcing couples to do everything they can to negotiate their separation between themselves. This can include mediation, if appropriate.

Even if you and your spouse are able to make an agreement on your finances, property and children, you will need solicitors to draft legal documents that the Courts can use to formalise your agreement.

If you can’t reach agreement with your former partner, you might need the services of a solicitor to help move things along and make sure your interests are represented. We can help you negotiate a Financial Settlement or apply to the Court for a Court Order in relation to access and maintenance for children, for example.

Protecting your interests

Napthens family lawyers are highly experienced and will advise you about personal finances, property and your children. We believe in giving specialist advice in a clear and straightforward way, and we will vigorously protect your interests.

Our lawyers advise business owners and individuals with high value, complex financial arrangements. Where appropriate, we will work with external experts in forensics and accounting to consider wider corporate and wealth management issues.

I can’t thank you enough.  I truly felt you were working for my best interests and in a way to get things resolved quickly and efficiently. I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone going through the divorce process. John P
