Family, Divorce and Children Law

We recognise that family breakdown and children cases can be distressing to all those involved and hence we take a caring and understanding approach in resolving your problems. Our aim is to provide professional, independent and confidential advice when assisting you with divorce, issues over children, money, property and cohabitation, at the time when you are faced with the difficult choices on the breakdown of your relationships. Our solicitors have the knowledge and experience required to ensure that your matter will be dealt with sensitively and effectively. We can offer trustworthy, reliable and sympathetic advice to achieve a result that is best for you. We have extensive expertise in all aspects of family law, from divorce, relationship breakdown, and financial arrangements to arrangements relating to children, care proceedings and injunctions. We can also help with very complicated, difficult or delicate circumstances, where there may be domestic violence in a relationship, social services involvement, or cases involving other countries. Whatever the matter, we will prepare meticulously and consider every detail and possible solution. For us, excellent service means supporting our clients the whole way.

Minimising conflict

Legal issues can arise when circumstances in your relationship or family life change. We believe that family law disputes can be resolved through negotiation and conciliation. At Courtland Solicitors, we pride ourselves on our high level of client care and communication. We will of course consult with you at every stage, keep you fully informed of developments in your case and advise you throughout on the costs implications so that you can fully assess the benefits versus the costs involved. We encourage communication rather than confrontation and we always consider the needs of the whole family, particularly the children. Whilst we will usually explore alternatives to litigation – mediation, for example – we recognise that some cases demand urgent court action and we will not hesitate to go to court to defend and protect the interests of our clients.
