Leading divorce lawyers

Our divorce solicitors are sensitive to your concerns and needs, whilst providing clear, practical advice based on your circumstances. We understand that every family is different, and there is no single solution that fits every situation. We will fully explain all the options available to you, and offer you real choice. Our goal is to help you make the right decisions to benefit you and your loved ones.

However complex your arrangements may be, our separation solicitors are here to support you through the difficult process. Providing solutions based on sound legal knowledge, extensive real life experience and common sense, we aim to provide stability, clarity and control during times of personal crisis.

Whilst you might feel very uncertain about your future, with the support of our divorce solicitors, you will feel confident to make decisions that work and are right for you.

Experienced family law solicitors

All members of the Rollits' team of family law solicitors are specialists, accredited by the Law Society and Resolution. The team has extensive expertise in complex business and personal financial arrangements, with the ability to draw on a wealth of experience from across the firm’s leading commercial, pensions and private capital teams.

We are also trained collaborative practitioners and accredited mediation solicitors, which means we can give you the choice of taking your case to court, or resolving matters using alternative dispute resolution.

Our family lawyers have extensive experience in guiding clients through the transition that will be needed to develop a workable ongoing future relationship as parents if children are involved.

Handling your case with respect and understanding, we will take the time to listen, explain all your options and work hard to enable you to achieve the best possible outcome.

Our knowledge and expertise of working with clients when a relationship breaks down gives us invaluable insight when advising clients on the creation and content of strong Pre-nuptial and Cohabitation Agreements.
