Family and Divorce legal services

Family Law in Peterborough, Huntingdon, Oundle, St Neots and Cambridge

If you are dealing with the consequences of your relationship coming to an end, we understand that sorting things out can be upsetting and confusing, or perhaps you are starting a new phase of family life, such as getting married or moving in with your partner and you want to create certainty for the future with a pre-nuptial agreement or cohabitation agreement.

Whatever your needs, our Family Law team take pride in offering a caring and sympathetic service backed by experienced, specialist legal expertise.

Our family law solicitors are committed to providing a high quality and personal legal service. When advising you, we will always try to avoid legal jargon and to be realistic with you as to what outcome you can expect to achieve.

We recognise that your situation and priorities are specific to you, so we can offer you legal assistance in a variety of ways, enabling us to find a way forward that works for you.

Wherever possible, we aim to keep conflict out of family law matters. As members of Resolution, we offer non-adversarial approaches such as mediation and collaborative law for divorce and family dispute resolution.

However, we also know that there are certain circumstances where it may be necessary to issue court proceedings to achieve the right result for you and your loved ones. If this is the case, we will ensure you have all the support you need to make the process as simple, stress-free and effective as possible.

Our Fees

We are able to offer a number of family law services on a fixed-fee basis, helping to give you certainty over the costs involved in dealing with your family legal issues. This includes an initial fixed fee consultation so that we can give you an assessment of your case, allowing you to make an informed decision about how to move forward. Find out more about our fixed-fee family law services.

Whether you are entering into a long-term relationship, or facing separation or divorce, our specialist family lawyers are committed to helping you reach a successful outcome.
