Need some advice?

For me in particular, this is true. It was necessary for me to end my marriage of 45 years which is the biggest step I have undertaken in my entire life but was absolutely right.

My gratitude is infinite. It is reassuring to know there are solicitors practicing who take their role seriously and professionally. James Belderbos is one.

Here, you will find practical answers to questions you may have in your mind if you are considering a divorce or separation, or are supporting someone through one.

We also help couples who are planning to, or are already cohabiting, find out more here.

We hope this will help you understand some of the processes and issues and help set your mind at rest.
