The Reigate family law team, led by Senior Associate Gemma Artus, is well-known for its expertise in all aspects of family law, including the resolution of complex financial issues arising from divorce, and child custody arrangements.
Our compassionate and proactive team of family solicitors can help you whether you are going through a difficult separation, making financial arrangements after divorce, or seeking advice on child law matters.
A couple assisted with a Child Arrangements Order
A divorce case handled by Stowe Family Law's Reigate involved a couple who have three young children and were unable to reach an agreement on a custody arrangement that worked for both parents.
As a result, they approached the family solicitors at Stowe Family Law's Reigate office for assistance in obtaining a child arrangements order from the court.
Stowe's family solicitors used their Child Law expertise to assist the couple in developing a custody arrangement that was in the best interests of the children.
Following the conclusion of legal proceedings, the court issued a child arrangements order reflecting the agreed-upon custody arrangement.
The couple was able to move on with their lives and concentrate on co-parenting their children in a way that was equitable and beneficial to all parties involved.
Different ways to deal with divorce settlements
The Reigate team assists many families in Surrey in reaching amicable divorce settlements.
They do this in a variety of ways, beginning with direct negotiations between couples, moving on to solicitors' negotiations, mediation, collaborative law, arbitration, and, in a very few cases, the family court.
Mediation, which is a very effective form of alternative dispute resolution and is used by many of our clients who cannot agree between themselves, is one of the most popular methods for divorce settlements.
Our Reigate team investigates all alternative dispute resolution (ADR) options, but if you’re unable to reach an agreement with your former-spouse, you can be confident that our team of skilled negotiators will work tirelessly to achieve the best possible outcome for you.
Support for survivors of domestic abuse
It’s estimated that one in every five adults in England and Wales is a victim of domestic abuse.
Domestic abuse can manifest itself in a variety of ways, including coercive control, emotional abuse, physical or sexual abuse, economic abuse, and tech abuse.
Stowe's Reigate family lawyers use the legal options available to help survivors of abuse in Surrey safely separate from their abusers.
Our family solicitors can assist clients in obtaining legal orders such as non-molestation orders, which prohibit contact with abusers, and occupation orders, which allow survivors to remain in their home.
Once protective orders are in place, our family law team can go on to help clients complete divorce proceedings and provide specialised support so they can safely separate from their abusive spouse.
