Matrimonial & Family Law

Family problems? We can help

Relationship Breakdowns

Relationship breakdowns – of any kind – can be extremely stressful. We understand this. They can present difficulties not only for those separating but for the family, with far-reaching implications.

At Dixon Rigby Keogh we understand. We provide a caring, sensitive but professional approach to all aspects of matrimonial and family law . Our Family Law Solicitors are not only very experienced but are able to give you the level of emotional support and consideration which is so necessary at such a difficult time. To us, each client is an individual and each case therefore unique. We specialise in all aspects of family law including divorce, separation / relationship breakdown of any kind including civil partnership, all property and financial aspects as well as children matters. We can also advise and prepare pre nuptial, cohabitation and separation agreements.

We have a reputation for our level of client care particularly in relation to family law. We adopt as far as ever possible a pro-active approach since we do understand that delay can lead to unnecessary stress. We will not encourage you to make your situation worse and we will fully advise on how to settle with the minimum of cost and do our utmost to maintain a dignified and amicable approach throughout.

All Matrimonial & Family work undertaken by this firm is supervised by Melanie Sumner.
