Are you looking for divorce lawyers in West Hampstead?

Collins & Hoy’s Family Team includes some of the most experienced divorce lawyers in West Hampstead.

While the decision to divorce is always difficult, once divorce becomes the only option you need to make sure you receive the best legal advice from the start, advice that is tailored to your particular circumstances and advice that takes into account which of the possible ways forward will work best for you and your family.

This is why at Collins & Hoy the first thing the divorce lawyers in our West Hampstead office always do is listen to you.

They will find out as much as possible about your situation, your family and the outcome you want.  We will then talk you through the options, exploring each until you feel comfortable enough to decide which is the best for you.

And wherever possible we will try to save you from having to go to court.

As trained mediators and accredited collaborative lawyers, we will always look to use alternative dispute resolution methods like family mediation.

Approaches like mediation and collaborative law are often best for everyone involved, especially if children are involved.  Not only will mediation allow you to keep greater control over the process but, from a more practical point of view, mediation is often quicker and less expensive.

However, if you have more urgent concerns to resolve – for example your partner is attempting to sell your house from under you or there are childcare issues or domestic abuse involved – we won’t hesitate to take the most robust and decisive action.
