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 have a particular expertise in advising on high-net-worth cases and supporting clients in safeguarding their interests, including wealth protection and the negotiation of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements; along with considerable experience of resolving cases involving family farms and agricultural businesses.
We also have lawyers who specialise in inheritance act claims and contentious probate work and also have solicitors available to update wills as part of the divorce process.
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.
Stowe Family Law was recognised as the Family Law Firm of the Year at the 2018 Yorkshire Legal Awards.
