Successful & compassionate divorce lawyers in York

The health and safety of our clients and colleagues is our highest priority, so we’re now offering virtual consultations during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic for all clients who wish to speak to one of our team, without needing to come in to our offices. To arrange your consultation, call us and we will book in an appointment at a time to suit you.

Our team of divorce lawyers and family solicitors in York, led by Managing Partner Chris Birch, can be found in Tower House on Fishergate.

We support families across the York area going through a relationship break-up including divorce, cohabitation disputes, breakdown of civil partnerships, resolving financial issues and making arrangements for children. We also advise British expats and overseas nationals who currently live in the UK, or have lived in recent years looking to divorce.

Whether your marriage or relationship has broken down, we give expert guidance in an accessible and easy to understand way, on getting divorced and ending civil partnerships while protecting children and family finances, along with all of the associated legal processes.

By your side 

Every case is unique so we tailor our service to the clients’ needs. We believe in a holistic approach to alleviate stress and work with empathy to secure the most cost-effective outcome, ideally settling out of court. However, our experience has taught us that at times, a court hearing is required and the team has a strong and robust approach to litigation.

Many of our family solicitors are Resolution Accredited Specialists, and we always provide the best divorce lawyer to meet your specific needs.

Protecting your financial position

Our in-house accounting team will provide a clear picture of the assets in your marriage in order to create the optimum financial settlement. They have a breadth of specialist experience in tax, property, valuations, accounts and pension knowledge and of resolving financial settlements in cases involving family farms and agricultural businesses.

Stowe Family Law was recognised as the Family Law Firm of the Year at the 2018 Yorkshire Legal Awards.

Expertise in divorce and family farms

We have considerable experience in resolving cases involving family farms and agricultural businesses. These complicated cases require expert strategic preparation to secure a successful outcome for both parties without having to sell or weaken the commercial viability of the farming business.
