Why Stowe Family Law

Family law is all we do, so whatever your situation is it will be familiar to us. Our specialist International Team combine their expertise with exceptional care and empathy, delivered locally to you. 

“I live overseas and their willingness to work by email and where necessary by Skype has been invaluable. With the exception of the court appearances I was able to handle my divorce from my living room. The barrister that they retained on my behalf was top notch and the judge accepted nearly all of his arguments. By comparison to my ex-wife’s legal team, Stowe’s were vastly superior and their fees were substantially lower. I would definitely recommend Stowe’s to anyone needing to get a divorce.”
