Divorce & Separation Solicitors
If you are experiencing the anxiety and loss of a relationship ending and suffering sleepless nights worrying about the future, you are not alone.
Our trusted, legal experts are here to look out for your best interests and guide you through the legal process, ensuring you achieve the best outcome for you and your family – with as little heartache, cost and anxiety as possible so you can move on with your life.
Almost 50% of all marriages end in divorce and for many it can be the most traumatic time in their lives. Months and sometimes years are spent deciding whether to separate and then, when the decision has been made, it can take time to find the courage to take action.
Emotions can run high and it is natural to fear the unknown and what life will be like after separation, not to mention concerns about how you will manage financially and speaking to the children.
The truth is there is no quick fix. However, the actions you take now and the choices you make will have a significant impact on your future.
The future is in your hands and we are here to help.

What our Clients Are Saying
I am writing this to share my experiences of working with Parfitt Cresswell as a firm and in particular my solicitor, Sharon Micuta. My divorce is finally coming to a close now but it has taken well over a year to get this far. I can honestly say without Sharon’s expertise and ‘Going the extra mile’ attitude to assisting me, I would have been totally lost in this stressful process long ago. Sharon has always been on hand to guide me through the labyrinth that is family law. My priority has always been making sure my dependants are looked after appropriately during and after the divorce itself. Whether in a face to face consultation, over the phone or on email, Sharon has always given me great guidance without ever forgetting that I am the client and I have choices. She was also always mindful that I had a limited budget. Many times, our conversations were in depth and complicated whereas on other occasions they may have been nothing more than a reassuring chat - either way, I always felt much better about things after speaking with Sharon. The case ultimately went to court with Sharon and her excellent choice of barrister being supportive and clear on the process at every step. I can not recommend Sharon and Parfitt Cresswell highly enough for anyone facing the tough journey through financial separation.
Very prompt at replying. Karen West explained everything to me regarding my options with my Civil Partnership.
Jacqueline Mary Thurgood
ELizabeth is a real star! she is absolutely amazing in her knowledge of the Law as well as her experience. She gave me the moral support I needed at a time when I was most vulnerable with even being on the phone with me prior to the court case as I was such a bag of nerves at the time. Elizabeth has a way where she has been able to calm me down just before these court cases and has given me the guidance and support that I needed at the time. I am absolutely amazed with the service provided by Elizabeth.
The team were very responsive and flexible. As a non-resident of the UK we had some logistics issues but the team were able to quickly problem solve by thinking outside the box. Excellent service.
Karen West was approachable and professional through out. She helped me to navigate through my divorce and answered my queries promptly.

Eve was very helpful and was available for any problems that might have arisen by being at the end of the phone or by using email for correspondence..
Jo and Mandy were on hand to advise from the very start of the process of selling our house. Both have been very responsive whenever we've communicated (not my previous experience with a different solicitor) and I felt they were very much working with my interests in mind. Excellent service !
Elizabeth was helpful and extremely discrete and understood my needs.
After choosing Parfitt Cresswell to handle my divorce matters, I have found this company to be very open & transparent with the challenges that can come with instigating divorce. My solicitor, Zanariah Webster, has been very professional throughout a difficult 2yr divorce process, informing me of all correspondences & helping me to plan as best as possible for a fair & just outcome. Zanariah was able to perfectly match the right Barrister for my 2 court hearings & I felt assured that my interests were always at top of mind. I would have no hesitation to recommend this company for anyone having to go through a similar legal process.
Dear Eve, Thank you so much for taking time to speak to S on Thursday evening. You were absolutely lovely and really helpful. It was so much appreciated. All best wishes,
Thank you Susan. And if I could say, from both Jane and I, a huge thank you for your excellent support throughout (we finally got there)
Sue Booth Thank you Sue, I will always remember how kind you were on our meeting! I feel a lot stronger now!
Sharon I would like to thank you so much for all your help, you have been amazing. I can sleep at night knowing I have done my best for my Children. Thank you for your non bias opinion and your great communication. You have made this rather stressful time a lot easier to deal with. If anyone ever asks if I know any good solicitors I'll be sure to point them your way.
Zan Thank you for all of your care and attention, both before and after your maternity leave. I appreciate it and have enjoyed working with you on my matter. Your advice has always been clear and well considered.

Dear Sharon, Thank you for your continued support during family proceedings. When I first visited Parfitt Cresswell I had no idea of the family court system and felt overwhelmed and scared for the future. You have been a tower of strength and advised me diplomatically and in a caring manner at all stages. Thank you for making a very stressful part of my life bearable. I wholeheartedly recommend Parfitt Cresswell.
