Your Trusted Family Law Solicitors 

Life is a journey and along the way there can be highs and lows. We are committed to providing all the information and support you require, whether finalising your divorce, resolving complex financial issues or facilitating arrangements for your children’s time with each parent.

We can also help when you’re planning for the future with co-habitation and pre-nuptial agreements where required.

Our first-hand knowledge and bespoke advice is highly specialised and we ensure that it is driven by strategic thinking, cost-effectiveness and clarity.

DTM Legal’s Family Law team understand that many clients may wish to avoid court proceedings. Our objective is always to consult with our clients, listen to what is most important to them and provide the best possible outcome through the most fitting and effective methods. This may include working through one of a number of ‘out of court’ resolution processes but, when necessary, we are well equipped to engage in court proceedings.

Areas of Family Law Specialism 

Navigating Divorce and Family Law matters can be complex. This is why we offer a Free 30-minute initial consultation. A consultation helps us understand your needs and allows us to explain your rights and the options available that will best benefit your situation. The services that we provide include:

Divorce & Dissolution

Divorce, separation and dissolution issues can be complex and often have related family law concerns. Our specialist divorce lawyers handle clients’ cases with sensitivity to achieve the best possible outcome.


For unmarried couples, cohabitation laws are unclear and often assumptions of what legal protection is available can be wrong. Our legal team can provide the guidance needed to understand what options may be available before or once you are living together and also the steps you can take should there be any unfortunate changes to your situation.

Finances & Divorce 

When relationships break down, financial matters often become a pressing concern. Our experienced team can guide you through the process, starting with considering any immediate issues, establishing the asset pot for division, proceeding through negotiation ideally through to a settlement but, if all else fails, court proceedings. Our team have proficiency in assisting people from all walks of life to include high-net-worth individuals, business owners and agricultural clients.

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can provide couples with certainty that their wealth, assets and business interests will be protected should the marriage come to an end providing certain pre-requisites are met. Our Family Law solicitors can ensure you have taken the appropriate steps to protect your interests and remove the need for disputes about finances upon separation.

Arrangements for Children 

Following a separation, we understand that the needs of children are always of the highest importance, and we work with the utmost care to ensure the children’s best interests are served. Our team regularly advise on the arrangements for where children are to live and what time they will spend with the other parent (or other family members) but also on specific issues such as relocation, choice of school or change of name.

Financial provision is also important, and we can advise on child maintenance and other financial arrangements.

We can also help with ‘non-traditional’ family routes such as adoption and surrogacy.

Domestic Abuse

Domestic abuse can take many forms. Whether you need assistance with physical, psychological, sexual, emotional or financial abuse, our legal professionals will provide confidential advice to assist you in understanding the options available to you and actions that can be taken.

What our clients say

  • “Helen was recommended to me by a barrister I had instructed through Direct Access. She was fantastic from day one. Her advice and support were amazing as she understood my circumstances and my issues with my ex-husband. Her letters were written in clear language and her preparation was outstanding. She was always available for me whenever I needed help on the phone or if I wanted to meet her personally at her practice. Helen's professional and positive attitude made a huge difference to my case, and I will always recommend her to everyone who needs legal assistance. ”

    Mrs. R, client

  • “Great service, Helen always replied promptly to any queries and kept me informed of all developments. She was also very aware of my budget and kept this in mind with all her suggestions.”

    Mrs. C, client

  • “The team have provided calm, clear and concise legal advice (both on the financials and children front) during a very acrimonious divorce.
