Family Law

Helping you every step of the way

What do we do?

As family lawyers we deal with more than just divorce.

We understand that the breakdown of a relationship is different for every person and can be a testing time. We recognise that it is important to have the advice and support you need to get your life back on track. If you have made the decision to separate or divorce, thinking about legal issues concerning your children and the financial aspects can feel overwhelming. We specialise in guiding people like you through the process of separation.

As you will see from our client information guides, we cover all aspects of family law.

We are very experienced in dealing with wealth preservation by the preparation of agreements for cohabiting couples and pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements.

How do we work?

We will guide you towards the best outcome for you, your family and particularly your children. We will always consider alternative dispute resolution options and the use of mediation, collaborative law, lawyer led negotiation or arbitration to resolve your difficulties without court proceedings. These options can reduce your exposure to costs. If you do need to go to court, we will ensure you have an excellent team on your side.

Why choose Freeths?

  • We have a highly experienced team
  • We have a successful record in reaching agreements without the need to go to court
  • We will give you clear advice and support if you do need to go to court
  • We will listen to you and discuss the costs involved in an open and transparent way
  • We are ranked as one of the UK’s leading law firms for family law by the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners directories
  • We will deal with your situation with discretion and offer a sensitive approach

We often deal with complex cases involving businesses, trusts and pension assets.

Due to the strength of our tax, trust, property, employment and company law departments, we are able to ensure that specialist advice is available at all times when addressing such issues.

We pride ourselves in offering the highest standard of professional representation.
