Stowe Family Law LLP
29 E Parade
Our firm boasts a wealth of experience in the field of family law, and we specialize in helping our clients navigate the complexities of divorce and separation. Our team of lawyers has a proven track record of representing clients in all aspects of family law, with a special emphasis on resolving complicated financial issues and preserving the welfare of children throughout the process.
While our lawyers are known for their exceptional litigation skills, we believe that communication is key when it comes to resolving family law issues. We therefore encourage our clients to consider alternative conflict resolution methods, such as divorce mediation, which can help to minimize the time, cost, and emotional toll involved in traditional litigation.
Our clientele is diverse, and we have experience representing both domestic and foreign individuals with varying levels of complexity in their financial situations. Our clients may include high-net-worth individuals with intricate holdings, as well as local professionals with more straightforward cases. We have helped clients navigate issues such as the division of assets, spousal and child support, and child custody and visitation agreements.
At our firm, we understand that each client’s situation is unique, and we take a personalized approach to every case. Our goal is always to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients, while minimizing the stress and uncertainty that can come with family law matters.
Our family law solicitors have a strong track record of success in resolving complex financial issues and securing appropriate divorce settlements. Whether you’re looking to protect your assets or secure your financial future, our team can provide expert guidance and representation.
We work closely with our in-house forensic accounting experts to ensure that our clients receive the best possible financial outcome. Many of our lawyers are Resolution Accredited Specialists, meaning that we can match you with the most appropriate divorce lawyer for your unique situation.
With our experienced Croydon family solicitors by your side, you can have confidence that your interests are being protected throughout the divorce or separation process.

Our family solicitors provide tailored services to address a range of family law issues, from childcare arrangements and prenuptial agreements to more emotionally charged matters. We take a constructive, non-confrontational approach, but we are also adept at negotiating on legal and financial matters.

If you’re looking to start the divorce process, or if you’ve been served with a divorce petition or papers, you will be looking for expert support, delivered sympathetically and with compassion. Family law is all we do, and it has been our specialty for over 30 years, so we’re also able to help with complex international divorce issues, family law matters and all the challenges that can appear once the divorce process has begun.
The divorce process can be confusing, and for many, it can instil a sense of anxiety and frustration; which is why we take great care to outline the emotional, practical and legal challenges that lie ahead whilst providing next steps so that you can move forward to achieve the outcome you’re looking for.
We can provide guidance on completing the divorce petition, through to negotiating financial settlements and child arrangement orders. Our expert team of family lawyers are based in offices located at 1 Elmfield Park, Bromley BR1 1LU, so we’re well placed to help you if you’re looking for family law solicitors in Bromley.
Each marriage is different, and this is always reflected in your finances. Trying to unpick years of financial ties can feel overwhelming, and there are often complex financial issues that need to be resolved. Financial settlements (also known as divorce settlements) can cover everything from pensions, to investments, the family home, and even assets you owned before getting married; so getting expert financial and legal help is important if you’re looking to protect your assets while providing for your family once the divorce is finalised.
We have experience in dealing with complex financial matters, property and estates; as well as catering to high net worth individuals and clients with assets abroad, so if you are looking to achieve a fair settlement while protecting your assets, our financial settlement lawyers and forensic accounting team can help you.
Very few cases only involve legally ending a marriage or relationship. Arrangements usually need to be made for any children of the family along with finances including property, investments, businesses, pensions and income.
Other factors affecting financial settlements include the length of the marriage, the standard of living during the marriage and the contribution made by each spouse to family life, assets and wealth.
The same applies to child arrangements. Will they be managed between parents, or will involvement from the Child Maintenance Service be needed?
Many clients return to us long after divorce when their circumstances change. For instance, when amendments to maintenance are sought by a divorced parent who believes that the previously agreed level of maintenance is too low, or too high. On occasions, it may be possible for a former spouse to receive a large ‘capitalised’ sum of money in place of ongoing spousal maintenance to finally achieve a clean break.
Alternative routes to court (arbitration, divorce mediation and collaborative law) encourage ex-partners to find solutions through dialogue, often reducing conflict and expense later. That’s mainly due to litigation often being required when the parties are at odds on child arrangements (formerly known as child custody) and how finances should be divided. Waiting for a hearing at the Family Court certainly won’t speed things up and will require more of your divorce lawyer’s time – which in turn will have a bearing on cost. It’s for these reasons that we recommend that family disputes be managed in a non-confrontational way. For more information on the methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that are open to you, we’ve outlined each in our guide to out of court settlements.
Our family law solicitors have worked with couples across London who have opted to cohabit rather than marry. At the moment, the law does not provide the same protections to unmarried couples as it does to married couples – where the ‘common-law partner’ is actually a myth. This can lead to difficult challenges later should you decide to separate. At Stowe Family Law, we have cohabitation lawyers on hand to provide guidance on how you can legally protect yourselves, often preparing a cohabitation agreement that will outline what should happen when a joint property is sold, how bills should be divided, and how each partner will contribute, and much more. Whether you’re looking to move in together, or if you’re just looking for peace of mind on the handling of your joint assets, we can help. For more information on our support for cohabiting couples, read through our cohabitation guide.
Our family law experts have decades of experience and have access to hundreds of years’ worth of expertise from our teams across the country. We’re the UK’s largest family law specialist, delivering tailored service and expertise, locally to you.
Our client-centric approach has seen us recognised by the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners for our commitment to outstanding client service and client success.
We understand that the best outcomes are often achieved amicably, where positive relationships persist long after your need for us had ended, so many of our Croydon lawyers are members of Resolution; a network of legal experts who are committed to promoting a constructive approach to dispute resolution that focuses on meeting the needs of the whole family and achieving a positive outcome.
Clients frequently cite our compassion, empathy and our ability to deliver the ‘hard facts’ and clear guidance they need to move forward with their case, and their lives.
