All of our family law specialists understand the tensions and worries involved in relationship breakdown. Whatever the circumstances of the divorce or separation, we can help protect your interests.
We can calmly guide you through the divorce process, and negotiate practical settlements for your home, finances and arrangements for children.
Our fixed-fee preliminary advice package includes advice on your options, possible remedies, and the likely cost of next steps.
Support to help with concerns and worries
Common worries during divorce and legal separation include:
- What will happen to our family home?
- How will maintenance be decided?
- Will I have to appear in court?
- How long will the divorce process take?
- Do I have a claim on my spouse’s pension, or does my spouse have a claim on mine?
- Should we try mediation or the collaborative process?
Our family law solicitors can support you on all such issues, always endeavouring to find practical solutions and to limit the potential for future disagreements.
Divorce in Scotland and other jurisdictions
Matrimonial law in Scotland differs from that in England, Wales and elsewhere, so we will take you through the specific processes and timelines involved here.
If your divorce is likely to involve cross-border jurisdiction or disputes – whether in England, the US or elsewhere - we can connect you to law firms outside Scotland, and work in collaboration with them.
An award-winning team working nationwide
The achievements of our family law solicitors (including on divorce and separation) helped us to win Family Law Team of the Year at the Scottish Legal Awards 2016 and many of our lawyers are recognised by the Law Society of Scotland as experts in the fields of family law and child law.
The team is spread across all our offices – Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and North Berwick – making it easy and convenient to consult one of our experts.
