The family team at Leeds Day understand that separation and divorce is often a time of conflict and heartache

Our focus

If you have decided to separate or divorce, you probably have all sorts of questions and worries about what the future holds and how to manage both the practicalities and the emotional impact of the relationship ending.

Our solicitors within the family team never lose sight of the real issues that are important to you and we work closely with you to achieve swift, practical and, wherever possible, amicable solutions. We take a sensitive yet objective approach to divorce. We see it as our role to guide you through the legal system and to use our expertise in dealing with difficult situations to make them as straightforward for you as possible.
