Divorce & Separation

If you are reading this page, we understand that you'd rather not be!   Whatever the circumstances, separating from a person you were once close to can be miserable.  However with our experience, we can provide practical support and advice to help you through.

One size does not fit all! We tailor our approach to suit your circumstances.

We have a team of family lawyers here at Pickerings, so we make sure that you get the most appropriate lawyer to help you.

We deal with individuals from all walks of life and with all manner of family issues.  Rather than sit worrying, why not call us for an initial discussion in confidence on 01827 317070  - we may be able to answer any niggling questions  very easily.

In addition to the traditional divorce , we can also offer the Collaborative approach. What really matters to us is that you get the service that you need to sort things about in the best way possible.

We can advise you on the legal implications of relationship breakdown including divorce and separation. We can guide you through the process and deal with associated issues along the way (including financial matters and arrangements for your children).

We have children law specialists here who work with our divorce team to put arrangements in place for the future of the family.

Our highly skilled team is regularly instructed by individuals with complex financial arrangements, international connections and difficult emotional contexts who value our practical, sensitive and bespoke approach.

In particular we can:

  • Provide initial advice on the financial consequences of separation
  • Explain the basis and process for divorce
  • Prepare and deal with divorce proceedings on your behalf
  • Advise on Separation Agreements
  • Advise and conduct nullity proceedings
  • Deal with international and jurisdictional issues within divorce.
  • Prepare & advise on Cohabitation and Pre-Nuptial Agreements

Financial claims on divorce

Businessmen & women, entrepreneurs and high net worth individuals, regularly instruct our team to deal with their often complex financial arrangements following relationship breakdown. We work closely with accountants, tax advisors, surveyors, pension specialists and barristers to achieve bespoke financial settlements that maximise your financial resources.

We can advise and guide you through the process and provide efficient, practical advice along the way. We advise on a wide range of issues including:

  • General financial principles on divorce
  • Financial provision for children
  • Spousal maintenance claims
  • Lump sum awards
  • Property claims
