Family law experts: guiding you through difficult times

Nobody said that family life is easy. When relationships are stretched to breaking point it can feel like there’s no one to turn to. That’s why we’re here: our trusted family law experts give honest advice when you need it most, sympathetically, discreetly and with compassion.

At Downs, we also know that everyone’s circumstances are different. Perhaps you feel that a divorce is the only way forward? Perhaps things aren’t quite what they used to be and you’ve decided to mediate before calling it a day? Maybe you are concerned about the welfare of your children? Whatever your situation, our family solicitors are experts in dealing decisively with your concerns, so that you can move on with your life.

Our family law experts can also help you plan for your future. If you want to marry or cohabit on your terms, our lawyers can help you set out in advance what happens to your finances if you split up: planning for tomorrow today through a pre-nup or a co-habitation agreement.

All of our family lawyers are members of Resolution, a national association of family law experts which promotes a constructive and non-confrontational approach to family breakdowns.
