Our family law team has a wide range of expertise in all aspects of legal issues affecting families.

We understand that when there are problems with the breakdown of relationships or marriage, and disputes over children and finances, it can be extremely stressful and distressing. Our family team is here to help and can offer constructive solutions to help resolve any situation.

We can provide advice and representation in relation to issues over the welfare of children, domestic violence, separation and divorce, and financial disputes, including the ownership of the family home.

Other areas of law covered by the team include care proceedings, Wardship, domestic and international adoption, forced marriage, international abduction, and civil partnership disputes and agreements.

We have a hugely experienced team of clerks who manage the practice of the specialist family barristers, they are friendly and approachable and can provide clear guidance as to who would be the most suitable individual for any case.
