Divorce and family law

We have significant experience in divorce and family law, meaning we’re ideally placed to help you find the best solution for you and your family.

Whether you’re facing one of life’s happiest milestones, or one of its hardest moments, we know just how complex and sensitive family legal issues can be. Ranked in international legal directory Chambers and Partners, our Aberdeen-based solicitors provide specialist support for

  • Divorce, dissolution and separation
  • Matters relating to children — access and custody, adoption and guardianships, as well as cross border and international issues
  • Prenuptial, separation and cohabitation agreements
  • Arbitration and collaboration

Our fees

We know costs are an important consideration. Our team will make sure you know how we charge for our services from the outset.

Our £250 (plus VAT) fixed fee service covers a no-obligation initial meeting with one of our family solicitors which includes confidential, preliminary advice tailored to your own situation. You do not have to instruct us beyond this session, but if you do, we’ll explain the costs for any future work at this time, so you know exactly where you stand.

For more information, or to arrange a meeting, please contact our dedicated family team administrator on 01224 408482; email debbie.garden@ledinghamchalmers.com; or complete the enquiry form below.

We do not offer Legal Aid for divorce or family law, but you can find out more from the Scottish Legal Aid Board.
