Family Law

Family breakdowns are always difficult times and most people would like to think they could solve any issues without the involvement of a solicitor.

However, when this is not possible, our family law solicitors in Southend-on-Sea can help reduce the stress with our sensitive and constructive approach to handling our clients’ matrimonial disputes.

We strive to ensure we get the best possible results, while being mindful of the cost of litigation – both emotionally and financially. We seek to achieve fair settlement of disputes by negotiation whenever possible.

We provide our clients with a quality service in the following areas:

  • Divorce/civil partnership dissolution.
  • Separation.
  • Prenuptial agreements.
  • Cohabitation agreements.
  • Cohabitation disputes.
  • Financial disputes on breakdown of relationships, including high wealth cases.
  • Private law children disputes, including parental responsibility, residence and contact.
  • Wardship and adoption.
  • Inheritance claims.

Our family department is run by senior partner Peter Fisher and partner Debbie Stanton, with assistance from Val Nunn who has many years experience in family law work.
