Penmans family lawyers offer a discreet, sympathetic and professional service in all aspects of family law. 

We can arrange Public Funding (Formerly Legal Aid) for those who may qualify


Divorce and Dissolution of Civil Partnership 

A divorce or dissolution will formally bring your marriage or civil partnership to an end.

Ending a relationship is often an emotional and stressful time. Here at Penmans we appreciate the difficulties you can experience and will guide you through every step of the legal process to make it as painless as possible. 

It may be necessary to consider financial and children issues surrounding your relationship breakdown. 



Some parties may not wish to consider divorce proceedings immediately and may prefer to formalise their decision to live separate and apart.

We can assist by drafting a Deed of Separation. This document approved by both parties can regulate any agreed financial settlement, providing a degree of security for both parties into the foreseeable future.  

If you do eventually decide to commence divorce proceedings then you may rely upon this agreement to conclude financial matters often making the process simpler and less costly.  


Financial Resolution

Our trusted lawyers have considerable experience in assisting clients reaching a financial settlement including those matters with complex and significant assets.

We endeavour to keep legal costs to a minimum while still ensuring your best interests are provided for.  

We ask that you are open and honest in providing your financial information so that we may assist you in reaching a fair and reasonable settlement. It may be possible to resolve matters on a voluntary basis for the benefit of both parties. However, if this is not possible then we can guide you through the court process from the issuing of proceedings to reaching a final settlement.  


Cohabitee Disputes and Agreements

It is now much more common for couples to live together choosing not to marry. If a cohabitee relationship then breaks down you cannot rely upon the same legal principles as married couples which can result in uncertainty.

It is rare for couples to take legal advice about their rights before they cohabit. By entering into a Cohabitation Agreement you make formal your financial arrangements during the time you live together. Such an agreement can then also govern what would happen if your relationship came to an end providing certainty for both parties at the outset. 

If a dispute has already arisen then we are happy to advise you on your legal options. 

Issues surrounding children

Often it is the children who are most affected by the breakdown of a relationship.  We consider it important to minimise any potential anxiety for your children and focus on their needs now and in the future.  

We encourage you to work together to resolve disputes regarding your children such as where they will live, how often they will see the other party and what maintenance you should receive. 

If you cannot reach a decision, then we will guide you through the court process to ensure that any decision made is in the best interests of your child.  

If you are facing difficulties in being able to care for your children and social services have become involved then we have a dedicated and highly respected team of child care lawyers who can help you.


Domestic Violence

If you have suffered violence or threats of violence within the home we have a dedicated team of specialist lawyers to provide you with the maximum protection. 

If you are the victim of domestic violence you must report any incidents to the Police as a matter of urgency. In addition, the courts can offer you added protection by way of an injunction, known as a non-molestation order and/or an occupation order. Here at Penmans Solicitors we have the ability to offer you immediate assistance in securing your physical protection if necessary by making emergency applications to the court.  


Collaborative Law

Collaborative Law is an alternative to the traditional court approach.  

You must agree to avoid court proceedings preferring to have a series of round table meetings with your partner and their lawyer. We work with you to reach the best and most amicable solution for you and your family. We aim to help you find “resolution by agreement, not through conflict”.


Additional Services

Here at Penmans we can prepare Change of Name Deeds for both adults and children which are acceptable to all authorities including the Passport Agency.
