Divorce and family law

We understand the emotional strain and financial concerns which arise from family breakdown and appreciate the need for clear and effective legal advice at such times.

Our approach to providing that advice is professional, discrete and solution-driven. Our team has experience of advising on a wide range of matters, from assisting individuals undergoing separation and divorce, to providing advice on existing family arrangements, and those entering into new relationships as cohabitants, newly-weds or civil partners.

Our specialist advice on family law covers all areas including:

  • Separation and divorce
  • Financial provision on divorce
  • Civil partnerships and dissolution of civil partnerships
  • Cohabitation rights
  • Issues relating to children
  • Adoption and surrogacy
  • Cross-border issues
  • Prenuptial, postnuptial and cohabitation agreements

Integrated Approach

Family matters can and often do involve wider considerations such as re-structuring family business, dealing with land and property transactions, and preserving family wealth. Our firm’s expertise in property, succession, tax and trust law enables us and our colleagues to offer a comprehensive service tailored to your circumstances. 

We advise on the options available to you and work with you towards reaching a resolution. The route to achieving this may be via negotiation, mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution, without involving court.  Sometimes court is unavoidable or it is the forum of choice, and if so, our experienced team is able to represent you in both the Sheriff Court and Court of Session. 

Costs

We are conscious that the costs of legal advice can be a daunting prospect.  We provide an outline of our fees at the start, and at each stage we aim to advise you on the costs of the options available to you to assist you in making an informed choice about how to proceed.
