Family & Divorce Law

The Family & Divorce Law Department at Hanne & Co is well regarded and respected in the legal industry

Experience in Family & Divorce Law

Legal issues can arise when circumstances in your relationship or family life change. We believe that family & divorce law requires a rather different approach to many other areas of the law; the aggressive, adversarial approach can all too often inflame and prolong disputes which could otherwise have been resolved through conciliation and negotiation.

Minimising Conflict

At Hanne & Co, all our family law solicitors encourage communication rather than confrontation and we always consider the needs of the whole family, particularly the children. Whilst we will usually explore alternatives to litigation – mediation, for example – we recognise that some cases demand urgent court action and we will not hesitate to go to court to defend and protect the interests of our clients. Whilst representing your views, we will also not shirk from giving realistic and forthright advice, however hard it may seem.

Whatever the approach, we will deal with your case in a sensitive and professional manner – always remembering that we may be changing the course of people’s lives by the way in which we conduct our cases.

We pride ourselves on our high level of client care and communication. We will of course consult with you at every stage, keep you fully appraised of developments in your case and advise you throughout on the costs implications so that you can fully assess the benefits versus the costs involved.

We have solicitors on the key specialist panels: the Law Society Children Panel, the Family Panel and the Advanced Family Panel. We also have three Resolution accredited solicitors and solicitors trained in mediation and in Collaborative Law.
