Family & Matrimonial

We are experienced solicitors who provide our clients with clear uncomplicated advice explaining their legal options, in relation to all aspects of family law.

Any relationship breakdown can cause great emotional stress. Aside of the personal trauma, there are numerous issues that will need discussing and resolving, and it is usually these where you’ll benefit from the help of a specialised family law solicitor.

We can advise clients on all the options available on marriage breakdown and separation. If necessary we can deal with court proceedings for financial matters, for issues relating to your children, or to protect an individual from domestic violence. Ramsdens are committed to encouraging a non-confrontational approach to resolving family disputes, using mediation and collaborative law where appropriate.

As part of our holistic approach to family law we work closely with other trusted professionals and where appropriate can refer you to Life Coaches and Counsellors, Independent Financial Advisers, Accountants, Mediators.
