Divorce Solicitors | Lincolnshire & Yorkshire
Home » Personal Law » Family Law » Divorce & Dissolution

With offices across Lincolnshire, including Lincoln, Grimsby and Hull, our professional and caring divorce solicitors can help.

Need advice? Just get in touch with any of our offices today, or call 0800 987 8800.

Depending on the circumstances of your relationship this can be done by the issue of divorce proceedings, civil partnership dissolution proceedings, judicial separation or annulment proceedings. We will be able to advise you at the outset of your case as to the most appropriate proceedings to take.

Financial Matters

There are always financial matters that need to be resolved when a couple decide to part ways.  We are able to advise on your entitlement in a cost efficient and time sensitive manner.  It is important that you gather all relevant paperwork and information for your adviser, but we can assist when information cannot be located.

Children Matters

When a relationship breaks down we understand that the children involved are the most important element, and if you are unable to reach an agreement with the other party, we are here to provide you with advice and assistance as to the most appropriate way forward for all involved.  When resolving children matters, the main focus will be the welfare of the children and ensuring that whatever steps are taken will be in their best interests.  We are able to represent you in all aspects of Private Law Children Act work, including contact matters, residence, parental responsibility and specific issues. 

Injunction Matters

If you have been experiencing difficulties with the behaviour of a former partner, we are able to assist you in obtaining a Court Order to prevent such behaviour happening again.  We understand that people find it difficult to discuss the most personal aspects of their relationship, but believe protection should be given to those experiencing domestic abuse.  Our sympathetic lawyers are able to assist in obtaining orders to protect you (and your children) where necessary.  Orders can be obtained to prevent violent or harassing behaviour, and to prevent your former partner from approaching your property.
