Our family law and divorce experts in Swansea


  • Is Stowe a Divorce Law Specialist?

    If you’re looking to divorce your partner, or if you’re the Respondent in a divorce application, you will be looking for expert support that is delivered sympathetically and with compassion.

    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.

    As a local family law firm, we provide guidance on completing the divorce application, through to negotiating financial arrangements and child custody (child arrangement orders). Our expert team is based in offices located on princess way  (SA1 3LW) so we’re well placed to help you if you’re looking for legal advice or divorce solicitors in Swansea.

  • Starting a Divorce Application in Swansea

    A divorce application marks the start of your divorce process. You can apply for a divorce by yourself (sole applicant) or make a joint application with your ex-spouse (joint applicants). Getting this early part right is important as it can help to save you time and money; it can also help to make the process more amicable. Our divorce lawyers can support you in completing and submitting the divorce application to prevent delays.

    If you’re looking for a divorce lawyer in Swansea, then please get in touch. Our friendly family law solicitors are here to offer a comprehensive service at one of the most difficult periods in your life. For more information, call our local family law department today.

  • Do I need to go to court to get a divorce?

    If you and your spouse or civil partner decide to divorce, and you’re both able to come to a reasonable agreement regarding childcare, financial arrangements and any other potential blockages or areas of disagreement, you should be able to get divorced without needing to appear in front of a judge.

    While your divorce documents will still need to be filed in front of a local Swansea court, you will not need to attend the courtroom in person.

  • Do I need to try marriage mediation before applying for a divorce?

    You aren’t legally obligated to attend marriage counselling or family mediation before filing for a divorce. However, it may help your case if you and your partner have gone through every step to make your marriage, or civil partnership, work.

    Here at Stowe, we can work with you to make your Swansea divorce as quick and painless as possible. Our experienced team of family law solicitors in Swansea are here to help you. For more information on the legal process, or to start divorce proceedings with a trust law firm in Swansea, get in touch today.

  • Responding to a divorce application

    If you’ve been served with a divorce application and named as the respondent, it’s sometimes unclear as to how you should respond; you’ll be presented with a lot of legal wording and expressions that do more to create frustration than they do to provide clarity. Our Swansea divorce lawyers can help you to respond to a divorce application while preparing you to get the best possible outcome for you, and for your family.

  • Can Stowe Family Law help me if I'm in a civil partnership?

    Yes, we can. If you’re involved in a Swansea civil partnership, which you and your partner want to end, we are here for you.

  • Arrangements for children and child custody

    Working out your arrangements for child custody can be a difficult and emotional step, and while it can become a contentious issue, it is in the best interests of your children to reach an amicable agreement with your ex-partner. It is helpful to have the support of a child law specialist on-hand to provide guidance on what a fair and workable arrangement might look like for you and your family. Our Swansea child solicitors have extensive experience in child arrangement cases and have seen a variety of solutions to suit every situation, no matter how niche. Our goal is to get the best outcome for your children and to help you to maintain a positive relationship with your ex-partner where possible.

  • Divorce Lawyers Swansea - Financial Agreements & Settlements in Divorce

    Each marriage is different, and this is always reflected in your finances. Trying to unpick years of financial ties can feel like an overwhelming task, and there are often complex financial issues that need to be resolved. Financial agreements (commonly known as Divorce settlements) can cover everything from pensions, to investments, the family home, and even assets you owned before you got 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.

    Our specialist firm have experience in dealing with family law issues, including 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.

  • Dissolving A Civil Partnership in Swansea

    Like divorce, ending civil partnerships take a heavy emotional toll. While some are familiar with the concept of divorce, for many, the path to dissolving a civil partnership will be much less clear; this process is known as dissolution and can only be instigated after you’ve been in a civil partnership for a year. If you choose to dissolve your partnership, you will be entitled to all the same benefits and entitlements as those who get divorced, and in a similar vein, thought will need to be given to the sharing of assets, arrangements for children. The main difference between dissolution and divorce is that you cannot use ‘adultery’ as your grounds for dissolution, this must instead fall under ‘unreasonable behaviour’. To help you navigate a civil partnership’s dissolution, our expert team can provide practical guidance and peace of mind.
