As highly skilled family law specialists, we are adept at dealing with all aspects of divorce and separation. Jones Myers has offices in Leeds, Harrogate and York and is amongst the country’s most respected specialist family law firms.

With over 40% of marriages ending in divorce, we understand only too well how the process of ending a marriage or a relationship can affect all family members – both emotionally and financially.

We know from our experience that financial issues are often an area of dispute and that lack of agreement over how the assets are divided can prolong the separation process, adding to your emotional strains. Worries about your children’s future can also exacerbate concerns and our specialist Children Team can help you make vital decisions and resolve disputes affecting their wellbeing, living arrangements and futures.

How Jones Myers can help?

As members of Resolution, a national association of family lawyers, our experts in divorce and separation are committed to help separating couples achieve a constructive settlement. This approach helps to avoid protracted arguments – promoting co-operation between parents in decisions concerning finances and best outcomes for children.

Because we understand that every case is different, our experts deliver a bespoke service tailored to your circumstances. This can include signposting you to relationship counsellors/life coaches if appropriate.

Whether you are looking for general advice about your options for separating or whether you are past that stage and decide that separation is inevitable, our team of solicitors will advise, support, and guide you through the process. We will outline your options offering legal and practical advice at every stage – giving you the information to make your own decisions.
