Divorce and Separation


The break up of a relationship and separation often has life changing consequences for those involved. We realise that the process can be one of the most difficult and upsetting events of your life. Our objective is to give honest, straightforward advice in a sensitive and understandable way. We encourage clients to resolve issues amicably, recognizing that litigation can be stressful, time consuming, costly and sometimes counter productive. However, if agreement is not possible, we will not hesitate to pursue your case vigorously through the courts, to achieve the best result we can for you.

Bates will provide all the help you need to fully understand the legal and other practical consequences of the breakdown of your relationship. We are experienced in resolving  proceedings and the preparation of Separation Agreements and Financial Consent Orders and will guide you through the options open to you.
