Tunbridge Wells based family law firm

Victoria Aked

Solicitor, Tunbridge Wells


From the initial client meeting to the conclusion of the matter, I am fully engaged with my client’s needs and concerns; whether emotional, financial or otherwise. I am able to approach matters relating to divorce, matrimonial finances, cohabitation and children with a humane and candid perspective.

 

Specialisms

Victoria has experience in divorce, matrimonial finance and private child law matters. She is able to advise unmarried couples and those that have been effective by domestic abuse and violence.

Approach

Victoria is courteous, compassionate and forthright. She believes that the key to a successful client relationship is communication and endeavours to ensure that her clients always understand what is happening at each stage of their matter and the possible options as to what may happen thereafter. She is able to outline effectively what is expected from herself, her clients and third parties to progress towards a conclusion of the matter.

Training & Employment

Victoria read English and European Laws at the University of Essex, spending one year at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. Victoria went on to complete the Bar Vocational Course and was called to the Bar in 2010.
Victoria worked in a large Kent-based law firm for a number of years during which time she completed the Legal Practice Course where she attained a Distinction. Following her training contract, Victoria qualified as a Solicitor in August 2019. Victoria made the decision to specialise in Family Law when she assisted in successfully arguing that the client was not married following a customary marriage ceremony conducted in Ghana. Due to the intricacies of the case, it was subsequently reported at O v B-M [2019] EWFC B23.

Outside of Work

Outside of work Victoria is a keen member of Beginners2Runners and runs several times a week, including participating in her local Park Run on Saturday mornings.  She recently completed her first 10k and has her sights set on her first half-marathon in the future. Victoria also attends Spanish evening classes which gives her an excuse to book mini-breaks and practise her conversational skills!
