Family Law

We are a firm with the strength to handle every type of family law case, from a straightforward divorce to the most complex breakdowns involving disputes with children, high value matrimonial assets, and international issues.

Family is often the main focus in a person’s life, and so changes in circumstances can lead to challenging times. However, we have a strong record of achieving success for clients across the UK.

In family situations, it’s particularly important for you to receive high quality advice from people who are experts in their field – and that’s where we come in.

We cover a full range of family law matters:

Divorce & dissolution

It can be very difficult to make the decision to divorce or separate. A decision made even harder when there are children, property, and  assets involved, which is the case more often than not. Getting legal advice as early as possible in the process will make help make it an easier and smoother journey. We work alongside you to achieve this, while putting you in the best possible position.

Financial settlements

Whether you are looking to protect your wealth or secure a better position for the future, it’s quite natural to consider the financial impact of a divorce, dissolution, or separation. With a strong focus on protecting your assets, Kingsley can help you get the best possible result from your financial proceedings.

Separation agreements

Separation is when you have decided to split and live apart, but are not divorced. It is often a solution if you have been married less than a year or are against divorce for religious reasons. In these cases, it’s best to get a Separation Agreement to set out how your assets and debts will be split, and any childcare and living arrangements.

Children law

Whether you’re looking to adopt a child or are dealing with social services, Kingsley can provide you with the expert advice and guidance you need in what are usually very sensitive and emotional cases. We support families with child arrangement orders, adoption and surrogacy, name changes, relocation, care proceedings, guardianship orders and much more.

Cohabitation agreements

A cohabitation agreement enables you and you partner to record your respective contributions to the purchase of property. It can also set contributions to outgoings. If you’re planning to live together as an unmarried couple, particularly with children, it’s worth entering into a cohabitation agreement as the law governing rights on separation can have surprising results.

Domestic abuse

Domestic abuse can happen to anyone, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, disability, religion, or lifestyle. However, as many as one in four women will suffer from it at some point in their life. It may include physical, emotional, psychological, sexual, or financial abuse, as well as harassment, and stalking. We are here to protect you, so please contact us for confidential advice.

Pre & post nuptial agreements

A prenuptial agreement, most commonly referred to as a prenup, is a written agreement setting out ownership of assets and how they will be divided, prior to marriage. A postnuptial agreement is very similar, only it used if you are already married. Both types of agreement can help avoid uncertainty and conflict in the event of a marriage breakdown.


Kingsley is passionate about protecting the rights of children in cases involving divorce, custody, neglect, and abuse. We work with children involved in these cases and enable them to express their wishes and feeling in a court of Law.
