Family Law

Our approach is to balance the need to protect your interests with keeping the wider picture in perspective

We care:

We know that virtually nothing in life is as stressful as a family breakdown.  We offer support and guidance when you need it most in a caring, professional manner.  All our team follow the Resolution code of practice designed to try and resolve matters without the need for costly and stressful Court battles.  Many clients comment on how much they trust us and how dedicated we are to their cases.

We listen:

We understand that every case is personal.  We listen to what you want to achieve and how you want to achieve it, whether that be by conciliatory means or with the strength to protect you. 

We advise:

We provide clear professional advice in a reassuring, caring and practical way backed by many years of experience specialising in this area of law.  We have dealt with many cases that will have been similar to yours.  You can trust that we are able to give the right advice.

We guide:

We are able to advise on various options to suit your needs.  We can progress a case through the Court system where necessary but are also Collaborative Lawyers – which is an alternative way of resolving the issues which arise when a relationship breaks down by agreement and without the need for Court applications.  Rest assured that we will guide you to resolve your issues in the most cost effective and appropriate way for you.

We are clear on costs:

We operate Fixed Fees for Divorce proceedings – whether you are Petitioner or Respondent.  Leaving you fully reassured as to how much the process will cost.  For other proceedings we will keep you regularly updated with costs estimates to help you budget.

We keep on helping:

The Family team works closely with Keelys’ specialist teams dealing with trusts & taxation and corporate & commercial issues. We work closely with other specialists in the fields of pensions, accountancy, taxation and property to ensure that financial settlements arising out of family breakdown are managed smoothly and every facet of the case is considered.  We will take the burden from you.

  • Divorce & separation (…more info)
