The Wilkes Partnership’s Family Law Team offer an efficient, commercial and modern approach to deal with all of the issues you may encounter during divorce or relationship breakdown. We have advised clients across the Midlands, Birmingham and Solihull, and further afield for decades and pride ourselves on being there for our clients when they need us most.

Our team of Solicitors have expertise in financial and corporate issues and structures, tax and pensions, which are essential in dealing with individual, often complex and sometimes unusual problems that each client has.

Our partner led team of lawyers and support staff will look for creative and innovative ways of resolving your issues.

We will agree a course of action with you to find the most effective solution for you in order to preserve assets, protect your financial position but to ensure that your family is provided for. Let us handle these matters for you and allow you the time to run your business and deal with the other non-legal issues that you need to attend to at this difficult time.

Court proceedings are not always the only answer. We are also able to deal with matters upon a collaborative basis. Collaborative Law is about clients reaching solutions together, where the lawyers sit down with the clients to work out their problems face to face.

It provides an alternative to the traditional way solicitors have dealt with family issues and avoiding the costs of Court proceedings, giving clients a greater control over the whole process.

In the 2021 edition of The Legal 500 The Wilkes Family Law Team were described as being "a key player for family law in the Birmingham marketplace. It is a full-service firm, so can offer its clients holistic advice in-house".


Resolution are 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.

Resolution 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 separation, divorce and beyond. They have produced a short film which looks at ways that parents can put their children first when going through a separation.
