Bishop & Sewell

If you’re thinking that 2022 is the year to turn over a new leaf and leave a relationship that isn’t working, you’re not alone, writes Louise Barretto, Partner and Head of our Family and Divorce Team.  In fact, the media would have you believe that every first working day of the year is ‘divorce day’.  This is simply hype.  It is true that there are a large number of new enquiries for us after any holiday but in truth our family team has been busy advising clients on a range of issues throughout the past 12 months.

It is worth noting that many marriages do not end acrimoniously, but complications over what is a fair distribution of wealth and what are the appropriate and best arrangements for children of a couple, do require the support of a specialist family solicitor in most cases.

It is our advice to select a solicitor who is right for you.  You can find out a little more about our Family team here.  You may also find these articles helpful.  We will be ready to talk to you when you call or email.

Welcome to 2022.  And good luck!

Our Family lawyers have the knowledge and experience to guide you through these challenging times and have rankings in the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners for their expertise.

If you need some advice and support, please get in touch via or call us direct on +44(0)20 7091 2869. We are here for you.
