Family Law Solicitors

When a relationship collapses, the proceeding separation or divorce can be an emotional burden for both the parties involved and their families. This, doubled with the complex processes required for a smooth separation, can prove to be extremely stressful.

At McDougall McQueen, our team of family law solicitors in Edinburgh are on hand to offer all of our clients a sympathetic, expert view of their current situation and will strive to ensure you and your family reach a positive outcome. Whatever the circumstances of your divorce or separation, our aim is to protect your interests and help, wherever possible, negotiate practical settlement.

If an agreement cannot be reached then we will be here to guide and support you through the Court process to achieve a resolution.

Helping to demystify some of the more complex aspects of family law, we can offer you ample support in a range of areas:

  • Divorce (including fixed-fee divorce)
  • Dissolution of civil partnership
  • Separation
  • Children - residence or contact arrangements
  • Child support and maintenance
  • All financial aspects arising out of separation
  • Domestic abuse
  • Adoption
  • Claims between cohabiting couples
  • Claims between civil partners
  • Prenuptial and cohabitation agreements
  • Cross-border and international issues (including relocation of children)
  • Child abduction

Fixed fee divorce

If quick and simple divorces are possible (where there aren't disputes over property or children, for instance), we offer fixed-fee packages. To see whether you'd be eligible, click here.

A legal separation or divorce can affect much more than your immediate family dynamic. You may have to make difficult choices, such as putting your house up for sale or making changes to your current will.

As a multifaceted legal agency, our team can support you through any legal challenges you may face in the future, meaning you can focus your time on the present.
