How We Help You

When you enlist the help of our team, we meet for an initial consultation to learn more about your situation and issues. Our family solicitors in Solihull and Birmingham will take on as much information as possible to gain the most accurate insight into the problem. Then, we will agree on a course of action with you to find the most effective solution to preserve assets and protect your financial position. 

We can assist with all the legal aspects of family relationships, helping you obtain a divorce, settle finances, seek injunctive relief and prepare separation agreements. But most importantly, we can help you make arrangements for your children, ensuring they receive the care and attention they deserve.

Court proceedings are not always the only answer. They are time-consuming, expensive and stressful, so we avoid them at all costs. We can deal with matters on a collaborative basis and through family mediation. Collaborative Law is about reaching solutions together, where the lawyers sit down with you to work out your problems face-to-face.

Our mediator is trained to help resolve disputes over issues by separating couples. They  will meet with both parties together to identify and help them try to reach an agreement on matters such as arrangements for children, property, assets, liabilities and child or spousal maintenance. It provides an alternative to the traditional way solicitors have dealt with family issues, avoiding the costs of Court proceedings and offering greater control over the whole process.

Clients We Can Help

Our family law services are available to all parties, helping anyone manage and resolve their disputes. We can act on behalf of couples or those who are separated to support them through troubling times. We serve clients throughout the UK and can handle international relationships with our network of associations abroad.


Resolution is a community of family justice professionals who work with families and individuals to resolve issues arising from their separation in a constructive and non-confrontational way. All of our family law solicitors are members of Resolution.

They have recently launched their Parenting Through Separation page alongside a free downloadable guide that aims to support parents in accessing information and support when going through a separation, divorce and beyond. On top of these resources, they have produced a short film which looks at how parents can put their children first when separating.
