A bit about me

Every day, I help to change people’s lives. When someone walks through my door, scared and worried about their future following a divorce or separation, I do everything possible to help them leave a different person with a new start ahead of them.

I appreciate that every client has different needs – whether you need a lot of emotional support throughout or require a firmer and more robust approach, I’ll work in the way that suits you best. There’s no case too big or too small, and however complicated your situation, I’ll see you through and get a fair result.

In my spare time, I’m a keen sportsman – I’m desperately trying to reduce my golf handicap, I watch Man United play any time I can, and I enjoy playing badminton.

Want to know more?

Come and see me at the earliest opportunity – if you leave it too late, then we may just be looking at damage limitation, rather than getting you a fair settlement.

Divorce and separation isn’t easy. You’ll need emotional stamina throughout, but I will do everything in my power to ensure the process is as swift and easy as possible.

Be honest with me – you can trust me implicitly, and it makes life very difficult if you don’t provide an honest version of events.

How much will it cost?

The firm can now offer a fixed fee for a divorce, but the cost for financial and children matters will depend on how complex the case is. I’ll always do what I can to keep costs to a minimum.

Can I get custody of my children?

Custody has not existed for some time. The court now refers to ‘child arrangements’ – these define which parent a child should spend time with and which parent a child will live with.

Should I move money out of my bank account before I get divorced?

No. Courts can examine your recent transactions, and may ask that you add the money back in.

How long will it take me to get divorced?

A straightforward, uncontested divorce usually takes around four to six months to be finalised.
