Divorce and Family Law

We recognise that the breakdown of a relationship can be traumatic and stressful and is a very concerning and difficult time for those involved.

Howell & Co. offer a Specialist Family Law Service dealing in all aspects of relationship breakdowns, including divorce, civil partnership, dissolutions, judicial separation,  financial disputes, children’s issues / disputes, domestic violence and harassment injunctions.  We also deal with co-habitation disputes.

If you are thinking of getting married or living with someone, we also deal with prenuptial agreements, co-habitation agreements or living together agreements.

Our Family Law Department is headed by Peter Burden, a Partner in the firm and an Accredited Resolution Specialist.  Peter is also a Member of the Law Society’s Family Law Panel and a trained Mediator.

Peter and his team will deal with you compassionately and professionally and offer a high quality, friendly service, giving realistic and pragmatic advice in what can be difficult times.

Peter is also a trained Family Mediator and whilst we realise that Mediation is not suitable in all cases, mediation can provide an alternative and cost effective approach of achieving a settlement without the need for Court proceedings.

We specialise in the following areas:-

We charge on a hourly rate basis.  Peter’s hourly rate is £185.00 plus VAT.

We offer a fixed fee first interview of £50.00 including VAT.

We also have a contract with the Legal Aid Agency to provide legal aid services in Family Law.  Please contact us for information about eligibility.
