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

Our focus

If you are thinking about separating or are going through a separation 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 priority is to minimise the stress that relationship breakdown can often bring by delivering a confidential, impartial and responsive service that helps you to deal with the present and look ahead to the future.

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 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.

Our expertise

Simon Thomas, Lisa Leader and Lee Bailham are all highly experienced divorce and family solicitors practicing exclusively in family law. We are also an expanding team, Charlene Powell having joined the team after successfully completing her training contract with the firm in July 2020. The team includes Resolution accredited family law specialists and Simon Thomas also specialises in collaborative family law. Clients may see a family law solicitor at any of our three offices: in Huntingdon, St Neots and St Ives and we offer the flexibility of virtual meetings via zoom or telephone.

We can help and advise you on all aspects of family law including:

  • Collaborative family law
  • Family mediation (assisting clients who are going through this process with their spouse or partner)
  • Divorce and separation (including financial implications such as property, pensions and maintenance)
  • Domestic abuse and emergency injunctions
  • Children matters (including children arrangements, parental responsibility, special guardianship, adoption and changes of name)
  • Pre and post nuptial agreements
  • Living together agreements
  • Cohabitation disputes
  • Same sex relationships

We subscribe to the Resolution Code of Practice which encourages settlement of disputes by negotiation wherever possible although, where appropriate, we will take effective legal proceedings to protect your interests. All of our family solicitors are highly experienced in representing clients in the family courts giving clients continuity of service from beginning to end.

We have specialist knowledge of business and pension issues that may be involved and we can call upon assistance from our other teams on commercial matters, trust issues and investments.

If you have a divorce or family problem you can always discuss it with us. No matter how small or large, we will be able to help.
