Welcome to your Specialist Family Law Blog

Newcastle and Sunderland Family Law Experts. Welcome to the blog of Jacqueline Emmerson solicitor. I specialise in all aspects of family law including divorce and dissolution, separation, issues relating to contact between children and their parents and other relatives. I also deal with financial settlements which can include houses, pensions and business assets.

I trained at Ward Hadaway and have over 24 years of family law experience. I was one of the first and youngest members of the Law Society’s specialist Family Law Panel. I am a member of Resolution and am a trained Collaborative Family Lawyer. I regularly contribute articles to North East regional publications and am called upon by North East radio stations to give commentary upon current legal issues affecting all aspects of family law.

I lecture to volunteers at North East charities so that they can understand in more depth the help that their clients need. I am an Honorary Solicitor for SSAFA (Forces Help).

You will find here articles and commentary which I hope will answer many of your questions regarding all aspects of family law. If having read my blog, you feel that you need further help, or a brief chat then please do not hesitate to contact me.
