Divorce Lawyers Westminister

If you are considering a divorce or separation from your partner, Shortlands family lawyers are trained in achieving the best result quickly and with as little confrontation as possible. We work with you to identify and apply only the terms that work best for you.

One of the main challenges you may face is getting your partner to agree to the divorce and the reasons stated. Our experts follow the family law protocol as cited by Resolution to ensure that agreement is reached at the outset to avoid escalated costs, delay and stress. If an agreement is impossible then we ensure that your case is presented before the court in the strongest terms to avoid complications and early settlement.

Child arrangements

We will always aim to resolve family disputes and matters of child custody (now called “child arrangements”) away from the court. Such matters can sometimes take over one year to resolve, not to mention the costs involved. In most circumstances, we work in a way that children maintain a healthy and positive relationship with both parents. We recognise that the child can only be helped with both parents working together. We initially encourage parents to agree matters through mediation or collaboration as this is the very best way forward in any child dispute.


Resolving the children’s care arrangements are the most dramatic part of a separation or divorce and vary from case to case. If your relationship has broken down we will work with you to achieve the best arrangements for your children.
