When your relationship breaks down

Time really is of the essence.

The sooner you talk to us, the more effective our advice will be. We have specialist lawyers able to advise you fully in all areas of relationship breakdown. We advise married couples, cohabiting partners and parties in same sex relationships. Of course, all you say is in complete confidence.

If the relationship with your partner is breaking down, we will explain the legal options available to you and what you can do immediately to protect your position. Whilst setting out the various options, we will act on what YOU, the client, deem to be the best action in your particular circumstances.

We can guide you through the divorce process. Alternatively if you have decided to separate but do not wish to divorce or do not have grounds for divorce we can guide in making arrangements for your children or dealing with financial matters. Knowing where you stand legally, sound practical advice and the sensitive approach of our dedicated and experienced solicitors and support staff can be a great help in sustaining you through this period of great turmoil.

We deal with the whole range of issues that can and do arise upon family breakdown including:

  • Divorce
  • Financial & Property Matters (including advising high net worth clients)
  • Children issues
  • Separation Agreements
  • Domestic Violence
  • Civil Partnership - setting up / breakdown
  • Pre-nuptial and Cohabitation Agreements

The team aims to resolve issues by way of a negotiated settlement and will support you through mediation if this process is deemed best for your particular situation. However, if Court proceedings are necessary, our team has the experience and resources to represent you through all the stages of Court action, our aim being to keep the tension and stress to a minimum by providing speedy, effective advice to help resolve these sensitive issues.

Darshana Jagatia is a solicitor and principal with extensive experience and heads our Family and Matrimonial department. She provides expert advice in relation to all family, matrimonial and cohabitational issues.
