Family and Matrimonial

The family and matrimonial solicitors in our Family Department have experience in dealing with relationship breakdowns and other issues arising from separation, with particular expertise involving the difficulties divorce presents to farming partnerships, commercial and business assets. We offer advice to clients in a sympathetic and understanding manner.

Where possible, we aim to resolve your dispute amicably by providing clear and sensible advice and are committed to negotiating the best possible settlement without the need for expensive court proceedings. Where it is not possible to settle arrangements amicably and you need someone to protect your interests, Bowcock & Pursaill will provide you with skilled advice and representation in Court.

We know that a family breakdown can be a particularly anxious and distressing time and the pressure of mounting legal fees can add unnecessary stress. We therefore offer a range of fixed-fee services with a transparent pricing structure enabling you to avoid hidden costs.

Our services include:

  • Divorce
  • Financial settlement arising from divorce or separation
  • Asset protection including Farming Partnerships and Business interests
  • Pre-Nuptial and Post-Nuptial Agreements
  • Cohabitation and Living Together Agreements
  • Separation for unmarried couples
  • Disputes over living arrangements for children
  • Protection from Domestic Abuse
