Divorce Law

As solicitors we will always seek to achieve a firm but fair outcome, enabling you to get on with your life.

We undestand that divorce is often an emotional and stressful experience.  It is not just the legal process which ends your contract of marriage, it is the effect it has on family and friends. At Winston Solicitors we do not lose sight of this, and will use our wealth of knowledge and experience to tailor divorce solutions for your particular situation.

Many people have children and financial issues to sort out when they divorce. These issues are 'ancillary' to the divorce process and you should think of your divorce in three parts:

  1. Divorce process
  2. Issues relating to children
  3. Financial settlements

We are able to advise you, and if necessary represent you in court, in relation to all of the issues which arise within a divorce, whether your circumstances are straightforward and your divorce amicable, or if things are more difficult between you.
