Family, Children and Relationships
Our award-winning team of family and divorce lawyers is top tier listed in both Legal 500 and Chambers Directories and has specialists across the full range of family law and divorce work. Legal aid is available wherever possible.
Our recent award successes include:
2017 Northern Law Awards, regional finalists in the family category
2016 Regional Firm of the Year (North)’ at the 6th annual Family Law awards.
2015 Family Team of the Year at the Northern Law awards- the awarding judge stated that "there was one stand out family team."
Whatever your family law problem we have an expert in our team to advise you and whatever process would best meet yours and your family's needs we have the skills and experience to deliver- in other words we have all of the "tools in our toolbox."
Our family law team contains experts in children law (private cases about child care arrangements, adoption, removals from the jurisdiction and public law cases in care proceedings and applications for placement orders.) We represent parents, grandparents and children.
In relationship breakdown our expert family finance team deals with divorce, civil partnerships and cohabitation including emergency applications where necessary.
Personal protection can be a pressing issue in family cases and we have a team of specialists in domestic abuse work able to take same day referrals for urgent advice and applications to the court.
Although our family team has all the characteristics and benefits of a niche family firm we offer the advantage of being able to offer a "one stop shop" in house to deal with linked legal services that you are likely to need, such as property or wills advice.
