Divorce & Family Law on the Isle of Wight

Some relationships will last forever but many marriages and relationships do unfortunately end. When they do, you need a supportive, experienced family solicitor on your side to help make arrangements for your children and to negotiate a financial settlement.

Our family law solicitors will provide practical advice in a sensitive manner.  We understand how emotionally fraught and stressful family law matters can be. Therefore, we ensure we return phone calls and answer emails promptly, so you are always fully informed about the status of your case.

Divorce - financial settlements and arrangements for children

If your marriage has broken down, the financial settlement you negotiate at the time of divorce may impact your standard of living for many years to come. 

  • Because we have no emotional involvement in your matter, we can advise you objectively on your decisions, ensuring your best interests are protected.
  • Our family law team has years of experience in dealing with high-net-worth divorce.  We can collaborate with wealth managers, forensic accountants and valuers to ensure your financial settlement is fair and no assets are being hidden by your spouse.
  • When negotiating arrangements for children, we put the interests of children at the heart of any family work we do.  Our family law team is experienced in alternative disputes resolutions such as round-table negotiations and mediation. 
  • We will work with you to help you and your spouse/partner negotiate the best arrangements for your children as amicably as possible. 
    However, if mediation is not a suitable solution for you (for example, if there has been a history of abuse in your relationship), we will fully support and represent you in court.
