We understand that divorce can be a stressful and emotional time. With tensions running high, it can be difficult to make clear plans regarding financial settlements and family arrangements. Our team can provide personalised and transparent advice to ensure you reach an amicable and equitable arrangement for all parties concerned.

What is family law?

Family law represents the laws surrounding the end of a marriage and any arrangements involving children, dependants and economic matters. It can cover common arrangements surrounding custody, visitation rights and financial support as well as more complex cases involving disputes or claims of abusive behaviour.

Thanks to the recent introduction of the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act of 2020, the process of obtaining a divorce can be easier and less stressful for everyone. Under these provisions, one party can initiate proceedings without assigning blame. Couples can make joint applications and issue statements of irretrievable breakdown. Even so, this can still be a complicated and stressful process.

At Hook and Partners, our expert family law solicitors in Rayleigh can provide clear, expert and compassionate advice that can protect your interests and ensure all issues are dealt with correctly.

A divorce can be particularly challenging – emotionally and financially – when children are involved, especially if the split is acrimonious. At a highly stressful time, you need expert and impartial legal advice to ensure the best interests of the children are protected.

Talk to us


Although everyone wants to reach a fair and amicable resolution, sometimes that’s not possible, especially when emotions are running high. With family mediation, we can create a safe space to reach an agreement with support from our specialist family law mediators.

Manjit Gill, our Specialist Accredited Mediator/Child Inclusive Mediator can help people sort out issues such as child custody, separation of assets and keeping costs to a minimum.

We also work to ensure the child’s voice is heard. All too often, children can be forgotten in divorce proceedings. Using mechanisms such as child-focused mediation and child-inclusive mediation (a confidential meeting with the children) we’ll ensure children’s interests are respected.
