Our Preston law office is well-versed in the complications that families and individuals confront when dealing with divorce or a family law matter. Our Preston lawyers routinely deal on instances involving complicated financial concerns including several assets and the protection of any children involved.
If you are searching for a family law solicitor in the Preston area, the family law team at Stowe work with a multitude of different circumstances, whether that be recovering substantial assets, unmarried couples, financial matters, and even more sensitive issues such as domestic abuse. We are the best divorce solicitors to assist your journey.
Our in-house accounting staff will give a comprehensive picture of your marriage’s assets in order to produce the best financial settlement. They have extensive professional knowledge in tax, property, valuations, accounting, and pensions. Our solicitors collaborate with accountants to reach a collaborative law solution in which money and other difficulties may be resolved.
Our lawyers understand your situation, including the difficulties and emotions you are experiencing. They also understand how to overcome those obstacles and lead you through the whole process with the greatest legal advice available, as well as by linking you to our large network of support specialists and resources, allowing you to go on and rebuild.
We will begin by listening to your specific circumstances before presenting your alternatives and the benefits and drawbacks of each. For example, if you want to file for divorce, you will be referred to as ‘the Applicant’ once the application is accepted by the divorce centre.
If your spouse applies first, you will be referred to as ‘the Respondent’. The Petitioner and Respondent must do separate and distinct activities at different times. Your divorce lawyer will explain what these are, what options you have, and the benefits of each. Following that, we will look at some great situations that relate to many clients and how we may assist.
Our team of solicitors in Preston will assist you throughout the entire process, ensuring your welfare and considering emotional factors throughout the family law issue. We also have experience and expertise in managing related cases, such as a civil partnership case.

You may be unsure about the size of the matrimonial pot because you suspect your spouse is hiding assets. Or you may just want to avoid a 28% capital gains tax on the family home, or a property or business portfolio or other assets.
Whatever your situation, as part of our divorce service you will have access to our in-house accounting team, who’s extensive experience of tax, property, valuations, business assets, shares, trusts and funds, accounts and pensions, will ensure you have a clear picture of the finances and assets from the outset. This is also key to achieving a fair settlement.
While our family solicitors are knowledgeable and experienced in all family law matters. Some of them have been involved in cases with unique elements or case law that could be more relevant to your situation. For example some of our family law solicitors have a very strong focus on child law including special guardianship orders, international child abduction and Hague Convention. Some of our solicitors have dealt in matters with cryptocurrency elements and offshore trusts. Others are specialists in assisting professional sports people or families with farming and agricultural businesses.
Because this law firm specialises in divorce and separation, and with so many family solicitors across the country, your solicitor has an unrivalled support network to tap into if needed.
In England & Wales, for straightforward divorce cases, the process can take between 6 – 8 months. On average, the whole process takes approximately one year. Longer than 12 months is common for cases where there are drawn out disagreements on child and financial matters. It is impossible to predict exactly how long a divorce will take, though a good a divorce lawyer will help give you an educated estimate.
