Our experienced Sheffield based divorce solicitors understand that going through a divorce is one of the hardest times in people’s lives. That’s why choosing the best family solicitor can make all the difference. We have developed a reputation for excellent client service, offering our practical, friendly and sensible advice.

We aim to deal with your divorce with sensitivity, compassion and efficiency, to minimise to you the cost, stress and to support you throughout the process. We are here every step of the way and we understand every family is different, we will work with you to achieve the best outcome for you and your family.

When a relationship breaks down, we understand that keeping your head above water both financially and emotionally is one of your main priorities along with supporting the children of the family. Let our team take away the worry and complication of the divorce procedure, allowing you to concentrate on what’s really important. Our family team have prepared a practical guide to divorce which you may find helpful or our ­divorce flow chart simplifying the divorce procedure.

We understand that the costs of getting a divorce can be a big worry, that’s why we have designed a fixed fee divorce package, enabling you to budget from the start. We also offer a pay as you go divorce, so you can pay for the legal service as you go along on a monthly basis, meaning you are in control of the pace of your legal fees. We also know that finding the money to pay for the court fee can be a challenge, that’s why we will assess your income to see whether you may be entitled to a discount in your court costs.

As highly experienced divorce solicitors, we know you will have lots of questions, that’s why we have prepared a Question and Answer section, dedicated to the kind of questions we think you will need to know.

She has explained all aspects of the legalities and kept me fully updated on the developments of my case at all times.
