Family Law

Family Law is a specialist area of law that focuses on all aspects of the family. It is an area that has become increasingly more complicated as the ‘family’ continues to evolve. We offer a sensitive and personal family service by supporting and advising through what is, for many people, a very difficult and traumatic time.

A Sensitive Approach

We have a team of sensitive professionals, who are accustomed to dealing with the many complexities of modern family life. Modern dynamics and shifting cultural attitudes, as well as additional pressures of everyday life, make Family Law more complex – and more important, than ever. Some matters may involve partners with children from a former relationship or a same-sex marriage with adopted children.


When it comes to divorce, the breakdown of a relationship can be a particularly stressful and traumatic experience. As such, we always make sure that we provide much-needed support and guidance in the event of these experiences.

Coupled with our vital legal expertise and services offered, we provide a comprehensive Family Law service that gives you everything you need and more.


In situations where children may be at risk, we work quickly to protect them where there is any concern over their welfare. This may include disputes as to living arrangements, disputed parentage and parental responsibility matters.
