We know that each family and situation is different, so our team will take the time to listen and guide you through the process with advice tailored to your circumstances.

We have provided more detailed information on each aspect of family law we specialise in - please see the menu on this page and follow the link to what you need.

Written Agreements

Written Agreements provide clarity on ownership, rights and occupation and are used to set out terms for couples currently in, or are ending, a relationship.

Divorce and Separation

The team at Bennett Oakley can help you through the trauma of ending a relationship, whether that is divorce for married couples, the ending of a Civil Partnership or by drafting a Separation Agreement for people not in a formal relationship.

Married Family Finances

We advise our clients, whether they are of high net-worth or those that do not have assets, to ensure that they are left with a fair and equitable solution when divorce occurs.

Unmarried Family Finances

The legal aspects of unmarried couples separating are very different to those seeking a divorce. We can help, advise and draft agreements between both parties with care and sensitivity to ensure satisfactory resolution.


Our primary aim, at Bennett Oakley, during divorce and separation, is the welfare of any children involved. They are centre stage to any decisions that are made and their needs, wishes and requirements are always taken into account by our lawyers in drafting agreements and during negotiations.

Domestic Violence

There are legal remedies available to help those suffering any form of domestic violence. Bennett Oakley can help anybody who thinks they are, or knows of another, suffering from domestic abuse. We will act with care, sensitivity and the utmost discretion to help make vulnerable people safer.
