Divorce & Separation

We understand that divorce and separation can be a distressing time for you and your children both financially and emotionally.  We offer a sympathetic and constructive approach and are able to provide clear and pragmatic advice.   We can offer expert assistance in respect of both the practical procedural aspects of divorce as well as helping you reach an appropriate financial settlement.

Cohabitation and Pre-Nuptial Agreements

We are able to draft clear and concise cohabitation agreements to protect your financial interests should you decide to cohabit with a partner.

We also draw up Pre-Nuptial and Post Nuptial Agreements.

Domestic Abuse

We have strong links with local refuges and support services in Norfolk. We are able to put in place protective measures to keep you safe should you find yourself in an abusive situation. We offer a quick turnaround service and are able to get applications for injunctions to Court on an emergency basis if required.

Children Matters

We are highly experienced in helping parents deal with conflicts regarding children.  We can assist with the relevant application to the courts and with representing you within private law children proceedings.  We do advocate that parents always try mediation first to hopefully resolve matters without the need to go to Court.

Public Law Care Proceedings

We are able to assist parents in Court proceedings issued by the Local Authority where there are concerns that children are not being looked after properly or are being neglected.  Joanna Longe is on the Children’s Panel and is also able to represent children within Court proceedings.
