Our solicitors

Our experienced family solicitors act for clients across the UK and have achieved the prestigious Quality Mark for offering advice to those going through relationship difficulties or separation. If a family dispute is proving difficult to resolve, it can be reassuring to have specialist personal guidance. This accreditation is proof that our lawyers deliver a high standard of advice and support to those experiencing family related challenges.

Whatever the circumstances, having a top family law solicitor to guide you through the process can make an enormous difference to the strength of your case, and to your peace of mind during the process.

How we work

Our approach is designed to reduce conflict and avoid common pitfalls. We offer a range of approaches including negotiation and mediation, but we are not slow to litigate when necessary. We also offer access to a range of accountants, independent financial advisers, banks and counsellors. This support network of experienced professionals will help you get back on your feet following a relationship breakdown or family dispute.

From a straightforward divorce to the most complex breakdowns involving disputes with children, high-value matrimonial assets and international issues, if you require expert advice on any family law matter, contact a member of our family law team, who will guide you through your options.

Members of Resolution

Lupton Fawcett is a proud member of Resolution, an organisation of family solicitors committed to ensuring divorce and family law disputes are resolved amicably and as constructively as possible. To do this, our team follows the Resolution Code of Practice, which aims to alleviate the stress and anxiety that can be involved in these cases.

This includes placing the individual or family at the centre of the case, so a settlement is reached collaboratively and with our client’s needs in mind. We aim to settle cases through non-court dispute resolution processes, including mediation, collaborative practice and arbitration, which can often be a more cost-effective solution.
