Divorce and separation

As anyone who has been through separation or divorce will know, it can be incredibly painful and the consequences far reaching – particularly when there are children involved.
We appreciate the difficult situations that can arise on the breakdown of a relationship, and our experienced team will work with you to identify early on what the main issues are likely to be in your case and how they may be resolved.
Our team is compassionate, whilst understanding the financial realities of life, and will apply their extensive experience and knowledge to your situation to help you reach solutions that are right for you and your family. They will also talk through the options available – such as mediation, collaborative law and arbitration – and not just automatically go through the motions of a court-based approach if discussions suggest that alternatives to a ‘traditional’ divorce would help you reach a more effective outcome.  
It’s important to have an objective appraisal and clear advice from the outset, and we have an in-house barrister who will provide an early appraisal and continuity of advice and representation, if required, throughout your case.

To speak to a member of our Newcastle or North Yorkshire teams about how we may be able to help you, a member of your family or a friend, please contact us.
