Family Law

If your marriage or relationship breaks down, it is hard for everyone involved. We understand your needs and that this is a very difficult time for everyone involved. Our clients really value our sympathetic approach and where we excel is in finding the best solution for them. This will be the solution that suits their needs and those of their family, but does not compromise their interests.

You can trust our specialist family lawyers to give you the advice that you need on your divorce, civil partnership dissolution or cohabitation breakdown, and financial arrangements. We can also help you with the legal issues that relate to your children.

On our Cotswold Family Law site, you will also find information about separation, pre, and post marital agreements as well as living together (co-habitation) agreements. As a specialist team, we can help you with all aspects of family law.

Our clients comment that our family team is friendly, approachable and gives upfront, tailored advice to meet your requirements. We are aware that it is important for everyone to know where they stand as quickly as possible so we aim to help you find solutions promptly.

Ian Davies has significant experience in family law and he is a member of Resolution and the Law Society Family Law Accreditation SchemeLaura Parker is a solicitor who specialises in family law and she is a member of Resolution too. Zoe Nairn is an experienced legal secretary and she provides assistance to both Ian and Laura, as well as running our Brailes office.

Should you choose Arbitration, Mediation or Court?

We always promote a non-confrontational approach to resolve any dispute when a relationship breaks down. Many of our clients achieve excellent results from arbitration and mediation. It doesn’t work for everyone, however, and we will always assess whether alternative dispute resolution is appropriate and, when it isn’t, we will help you with the court proceedings to reach a settlement.

Our dedicated family website, can be found here. Although principally based at Brailes, we have specialist family solicitors capable of assisting you at both of our offices. We can arrange appointments to suit you at either office, which enables us to cover Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire and beyond.

Our Cotswold Family Law website has an extensive resource section answering many questions like “How long will a divorce take?” and “How much does a divorce cost?. We appreciate that fees can be a big concern for clients when their relationship breaks down. Clients often praise us for being completely transparent about the cost.
