Divorce & Separation



Divorce & Separation

The resolution of issues arising from family breakdown or conflict require a special combination of an understanding and sympathetic approach together with rigorous legal analysis and a recognition that each case requires an individual tailor made solution.

The Lawson Lewis Blakers Family Law Department comprises four specialist solicitors and a team of experienced para legals and support staff. Our solicitors expertise is recognised via their membership of specialist panels.

We are able to help with:-

  • Co-habitation and Pre-Nuptial Agreements
  • Divorce and Separation
  • Disputes concerning children to include disputes over contact, residence and child care
  • Financial provision on separation, divorce or death
  • Domestic violence
  • Disputes with cohabitees
  • Care Proceedings
  • Welfare benefits / Tax issues
  • Civil Partnerships
  • Child Support

We aim to provide clear analysis and advice as to your position and to support you throughout what can be a traumatic process. We believe that sorting out family conflicts is a multi disciplinary process and we will refer you for help elsewhere where we believe that this may be beneficial.

We aim to try and work co-operatively with those representing your partner and our team which includes members of Resolution a solicitor’s organisation dedicated to the promotion of constructive and professional solution of family disputes.

We are committed to providing the most cost effective service possible. We are able to offer Legal Aid and for our private clients offer a range of options to try and spread the impact of professional fees
