An amicable divorce

A divorce can be a largely amicable process, even though often there are stresses and strains along the way. Where it’s possible, and according to your wishes, we can support you to try and achieve an amicable split.

Specific ways we may support you, as appropriate may be:

  • avoiding blame for the breakdown of the relationship
  • being as honest as possible with each other
  • focussing only on what really matters, such as children, the house, the pension etc and avoiding arguing about things such as sofas or dinner sets!
  • consider taking a mediation approach to help you with this.

Thinking of divorce but you don’t have a joint account? If you don’t have access to the family money we can help. It’s possible to organise for the legal fees to be paid by the person who does control the family finances.

In 2021 the Legal 500 said "Their key knowledge in family law and their work etiquette gives clients extra peace of mind. I was very relaxed when I went through the divorce and Tees Law definitely supported me the whole way. Updates were constantly given about the case and they went the extra mile at all times to make sure I understood the law. Brilliant company and they look after all their clients."

    'Caroline Andrews has been exceptional. She explained everything within a very difficult divorce with ease, understanding total transparency and complete empathy.

    Legal 500 UK 2021
