We are here to guide 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.
Our family law experts work with a number of delicate and difficult cases, but we can also help plan for a positive future ahead. When things feel as though they are in endless turmoil, our team can gather round you and be the guidance you need to keep you on a steady path.
Our services are based on honest advice when you need it most and solutions that are sympathetic, compassionate and discreet.
Our family law experts can help you in many aspects of family law including:
- Divorce and Dissolution of Civil partnerships
- Sorting out financial issues
- Resolving children matters such as residence, contact and parental responsibility
- Supporting you through mediation
- Living Together and Cohabitation Agreements
- Pre-Marriage Agreements (Pre-Nups and Post-Nups)
- Separation Agreements, and

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.
Our goal is simple: we will always act in your interests and not ours. In suitable circumstances we also offer a fixed fee package for an uncontested divorce.
