Expert divorce lawyers in Portsmouth

We understand the challenges that families and individuals facing a family law matter must face. We often assist clients in resolving complex financial difficulties involving several assets, as well as providing advice on child custody and contact arrangements following a divorce. Our experienced divorce lawyers have handled cases including the dissolution of civil partnerships, domestic abuse, family mediation, prenuptial agreements, kidnapping, and financial settlement concerns.

Portsmouth solicitors – on your side, in and out of court

Our family law lawyers have extensive expertise. Solicitors combine extensive legal knowledge with a sympathetic demeanour and client-centred care. To avoid lengthy procedures, we work hard to reach an out-of-court settlement. We understand that this is not always achievable, and we have substantial litigation experience for when litigation is required to secure a just settlement.

Family Solicitors Portsmouth

Because each client has unique needs, we tailor our strategy and legal assistance accordingly. We will lead you through the practical, emotional, and legal elements of divorce from the beginning to the end of the process (and other types of separation).

The family law team in Portsmouth is led by Senior Associate, Liza Gatrell. She is supported by an expert team of family solicitors.

Collaborative Family Law Portsmouth

While our family lawyers are well-known for their ability to litigate, going to court can complicate, cost money, and add stress to a divorce or separation.

For this reason, we offer out-of-court (alternative dispute resolution) methods like mediation, arbitration, and collaborative law, which allow each spouse to address problems and establish agreements over the family’s assets, minor children, and other issues.

In addition to assisting our clients with the legal issues of divorce, we always adopt an empathic approach and encourage them to contact our network of family support professionals if necessary. This includes parenting classes, coaches, and therapists. We have a variety of methods to help with a number of issues, including financial arrangements, pre nuptial agreements and any legal processes.
