If you’re going through a divorce or separation, you are facing a major life-changing process.

It is essential for you to clearly understand your options and responsibilities before you make any decisions. Our family law experts can help you make sense of your situation. We give you clear and practical advice on the best steps to follow, whether that is about distributing assets in a fair and sensible way, or making sure the interests of your children are protected.

We can advise you about the various options for reaching agreement, such as mediation or collaborative law, and if it does go to court we do everything possible to ensure a fair outcome. For some it can be a lot to take in, so our approach is to break things down into steps and take you through a clear and manageable process that removes the unknown and gives you back a sense of control. Call 023 8071 8000 or visit  www.mooreblatch.com/individual/family-divorce/

The Divorce Surgery helps cut out the conflict.

When couples separate they face complicated decisions about splitting their finances. Most couples will need expert legal advice to find tailored solutions which are fair to both of them. What they do not need is an adversarial process which raises further tensions. The traditional route is for couples each to appoint their own solicitors and thus begins an adversarial process. This often takes many months and can be very costly. The Government’s ‘no fault divorce’ proposals, whilst welcome, will not change this process.  The Divorce Surgery short circuits the traditional route. Instead of appointing your own lawyers, one impartial and experienced family law barrister advises you both as to the way a court would view your case. We aim to complete the process in 6-8 weeks and will advise you of the total fee up front before you commit. You are then each empowered to come to an agreement which is fair. No lengthy litigation, no acrimony, no delay and no disproportionate legal fees.

Founded by 2 experienced and specialist family law barristers, The Divorce Surgery is authorised and regulated by the Bar Standards Board.
