Our process

Our Nottingham family team will help you towards the best situation for you and particularly your children. We always consider alternative dispute resolution methods such as collaborative law, solicitor-led negotiation, mediation, or arbitration. These can help reduce your exposure to costs and delays in court.

However, if you still have to go to court, our Nottingham family solicitors will support you every step of the way. You will find us friendly and approachable throughout – you can be sure you are in safe hands.

In particular, we are specialists in complex family law cases involving pensions assets or business trusts. Our experience of wealth preservation is helpful in preparing agreements for cohabitation and pre-nuptials. With experts in tax, trusts, property, employment and company law, we have a huge breadth of understanding. Give Nikki Aston in Nottingham a call today to find out how we could help you.
