Expert divorce lawyers in Southampton
The family law team in Southampton is led by Partner, Vicki Rawlins. She is supported by an expert team of family solicitors.
We are highly experienced in the complexities faced by families and individuals dealing with a family law issue. We frequently work with clients to resolve complex financial matters with multiple assets and advise concerning where children live and how they spend time with their parents post-divorce. Our specialist team of divorce solicitors are well-versed in handling matters that include civil partnership relationship breakdown, domestic abuse, family mediation, postnuptial agreements, child abduction and financial settlement issues.
Our clients range from high-net-worth families with substantial assets, income and investments through to professional families and stay at home parents in the Southampton area.
Southampton solicitors – on your side, in and out of court
Our expert family law solicitors combine our keen legal knowledge with a personable approach and client care. We actively work towards achieving an out-of-court settlement to avoid drawn-out proceedings. However, we appreciate this is not possible so when required, we are highly experienced in ligation to achieve a fair resolution.
We tailor our approach and legal advice to the unique needs of each client. We will guide you through the practical, emotional and legal aspects of divorce (and other types of separation), from the very start of the divorce process and over the finish line.
While our divorce solicitors have a reputation for being expert litigators, court proceedings can add unnecessary time, expense and stress to a divorce or separation. We offer out of court (alternative dispute resolution) routes: mediation, arbitration and collaborative law, which allow each spouse to find solutions and reach agreements on finances, any children involved and other family issues. In addition to supporting our clients through the legal side of divorce, we always apply an empathetic approach and encourage reaching out to our network of family support professionals if needed. This includes including coaches, therapists and parenting groups.
