Take advantage of FREE expert legal advice in relation to relationship breakdown, arrangements for your children or financial matters following your separation..


Divorce / Separation

Whether you just want to discuss your options, or need representation, we can provide you with expert advice at a reasonable cost.
We offer fixed fee services in relation to uncontested divorce to provide certainty and peace of mind.

Solving financial issues following the breakdown of a relationship can be a stressful and confusing experience. We offer a full range of services to assist you in resolving your financial separation including:

• General advice about your options
• Preparing and issuing applications on your behalf
• Checking documents which you have prepared
• Preparing and advising in relation to Consent Orders
• Preparing financial statements
• Representing you at Court


As a specialist family law solicitor, Emma Williams has the experience to ensure children’s arrangements are handled with care and respect.

In many cases you will be able to advice on arrangements about where your children live and how often they will spend time with their other parent, however, if you are unable to reach an agreement or if it has broken down we can offer experienced, caring, child focused advice and assistance.

Child Maintenance is not linked to arrangements for your children but we can offer advice on your rights and obligations in this area.

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence can happen to anyone.

Nobody should have to live in fear of their partner.

Domestic abuse covers a whole range of behaviours including emotional, financial and verbal abuse as well as physical violence.

We offer sympathetic and comprehensive advice and representation to help you protect yourself and your children.

Pre Nuptial Agreements and Unmarried Couples

A prenuptial (or premarital) agreement is a written agreement made by a couple who intend to get married or enter into a civil partnership.
This agreement specifies the financial settlement which would be made in the event that they divorce or their civil partnership is dissolved.

Whilst these agreements are not enforceable by the Courts in England & Wales an increasing number of couples are choosing to enter into prenuptial agreements. These couples want to clarify what would happen if they divorce. Often they wish to agree to exclude assets which are inherited. They feel that a prenuptial agreement is likely to minimise disagreement if they separate.

We can advise you whether such an agreement is suitable for you and if so draft an agreement to ensure that it is taken into account by the courts in the event of relationship break down.

As well as advising divorcing couples we also provide advice to couples who are living together including same sex couples. It is important for such couples to obtain legal advice because the law relating to their situation is different from the law relating to married couples.

Private Client

A family breakdown can be a difficult and distressing time. A divorce could well mean that changes might be necessary to your existing will. You will want to know that you have appropriate arrangements in place for your family should the worst happen. Emma Williams Family Law’s Private Client Team has significant experience in will drafting and is well equipped to draft a will for you to ensure that your assets will be dealt with according to your wishes and to reflect any change in your circumstances.

If you have, or are looking after, elderly relatives you might want to ensure you have a Power of Attorney in place so that you are better prepared to help them should the need arise. Again Emma Williams Family Law can help with Powers of Attorney for financial or health and welfare decisions and can deal with their drafting and lodgement with the Office of the Public Guardian as required.

I went to see Emma today, she is a compassionate and understanding individual.
I felt she was realistic, honest, and approachable. During what can be difficult times, it is important to be able to speak to someone who is understanding, whilst at the same time being straight about the facts and likely outcomes through the divorce process.
I felt Emma had genuine care about parents, equality, and ultimately the children (when they are involved in a process).
