Divorce & Separation

Going through separation or divorce can be incredibly painful and the consequences far-reaching – particularly when there are children involved.

At Silk Family Law we appreciate the difficult situations that can arise when a relationship breaks down, and our experienced team will work with you to identify early on what the main issues are likely to be in your particular 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 personal situation to help you reach solutions that are right for you.

We talk you through the options available for divorce, including mediation, collaborative law, arbitration and the court. We do not automatically assume that a court-based approach is the best route if our discussions suggest that alternatives would help you reach more equitable and fair outcomes. However, sometimes there is no alternative to court, and we will be there to support and advise at every step.

It is important to have clear objectives at the outset. Our in-house barrister Ian Kennerley can provide an early appraisal with continuity of advice and representation, if required, throughout your case.

We work with clients across the UK. You can visit us at our offices in Newcastle or North Yorkshire, or in our consulting rooms in York, Leeds and London, and we offer consultations via Skype too.
