Divorce & relationship breakdown

Divorce/ civil partnerships

Financial matters arising out of relationship breakdown

Going through a divorce or separation is an extremely difficult time. However, it is vitally important that consideration is given to the division of your financial assets. Specialist advice may be required on matters such as sale of the family home or entitlement to pensions. We can support and assist you with this process and can often reach a solution without having to attend court on your behalf. We can provide advice for married and unmarried couples.

Legal Aid may be available for this work and we would be happy to conduct a free legal aid assessment. For further guidance on funding options for your case please feel free to email us or request a call back.

Children

Disagreements over which parent a child should live with or what level of contact should take place between a child and their parent and similar matters can often be the most stressful issues arising on relationship breakdown. However, all our solicitors at Atkinson Firth are trained to deal with such sensitive cases and guide you through them. We are also able to provide advice in urgent situations, for example where your child may have been abducted. Our solicitors have highly specialised skills in dealing with these matters and take a sensitive approach.

Legal Aid may be available for this work and we would be happy to conduct a free legal aid assessment. For further guidance on funding options for your case please feel free to email us or request a call back.

If social services are involved with the children in your family, please go to our Children & Care page for further information.
