Family Law Specialists Newcastle and Sunderland. Divorce and Dissolution Solicitors.

We regularly negotiate complex divorce settlements including the distribution of business assets, pensions, investments and property. We can also help you with cohabitation disputes, maintenance, prenuptial agreements, dissolution and transgender issues.

Our Family lLaw and Divorce Law specialists deal with children's matters such as where a child will live, how often they see both of their parents, where they will stay during holidays and so on. We regularly act for grandparents who wish to see their grandchildren.

No matter how difficult the situation is, with our assistance it can be resolved. Our approach is conciliatory yet firm - we believe an aggressive stance only serves to protract matters and increase costs. We will obtain the best possible settlement for clients with the minimum of fuss.

We regularly work with mortgage advisors, valuers and estate agents to enable matters to proceed. We also deal with wills, trusts and probate to ensure that our clients' property and possessions are dealt with as they wish.

“I was delighted with the service I received. Your Lawyer was fantastic, and I could not recommend her enough. I had been with an alternative solicitor for many years and had never been advised that I did not need to go to court. She advised me to try mediation, which I did, and how the matter is resolved. I would definitely recommend.”

“Your Lawyer was so helpful and compassionate. She has been brilliant! I couldn’t fault her. She has been good to work with. Very straightforward and easy to talk to and she really understood my situation. Overall she has been great. As has Emmersons. I am very pleased with the service. Helaina was lovely, always calling me back and there have been no delays apart from those outside of her control. I would recommend this Family Lawyer and Emmersons to anyone.”
