Our advice is always personal, practical and tailored for you. Whether it’s divorce, separation, a dispute with your cohabitant, setting up a prenuptial agreement or a postnuptial agreement, securing contact with your children or drawing up a cohabitation agreement, our specialist team of Family Law Solicitors in Harpenden, Hertfordshire will work with you to map out a plan for the future. We listen to your priorities and concerns. We clarify your issues and explore your options. And we find the approach that fits. Because we’re more than just litigators or mediators.
We’re trusted advisers – at your side for the journey ahead.
When things take a turn for the worst, having someone to rely on can make all the difference. From the moment you instruct one of our family law solicitors, we will provide you with a clear, jargon-free understanding of your unique legal position and an estimate of the time and costs involved. That way, you’re in a better place to decide what’s right for you.
We recognise that each family is different and has its own special circumstances, which is why we will always take the time to listen to your situation in full. This helps us to be able to provide tailored advice on how best to protect your interests. Whatever the issue – divorce, a dispute with your cohabitant, financial issues arising from your cohabitation or separation, securing contact with your children or grandchildren. Recognised for our commitment to client care, we will always work proactively to move your case forward, bringing things to a satisfying conclusion in a timely manner.
Our aim is to enable you to move from a painful present to a stable future with minimal fuss, and if possible, we will attempt to achieve this through Alternative Dispute Resolution to save you the costs of court.
We can negotiate a settlement for you, refer you to mediation or sit around the table with you, your partner and their lawyer in the Collaborative law process.
In other cases, agreement at an early stage is not possible and detailed knowledge of the law, legal procedure and local practice is essential, which is why our lawyers can help you and your family.

Any divorce has a huge emotional impact on the individuals involved, but for high net worth individuals it can also raise complex legal, financial and commercial issues.
The law in relation to married and unmarried couples is quite different. For married couples matrimonial settlements are governed by the law as set out in the Matrimonial Causes Act. For unmarried couples there is no comprehensive law governing their financial settlement. Please see the relevant pages below.
