Using our experience to provide strong and assertive representation to protect your interests.

Family, Divorce and Childcare

When a relationship breaks down, the consequences can be extreme, both emotionally and financially. At Hathaways, we know from experience that your needs will be unique to you. Our aim will be to support you through to an amicable resolution, but, where necessary, provide strong and assertive representation to protect your interests.


In such circumstances, there may be children to consider. Again, we can provide advice on arrangements to be made, but bearing in mind and practice the sensitive nature of the situation. Also, with regard to children, there may be challenges from other quarters, but again we can help.


  • Advice on divorce;
  • Separation agreements;
  • Financial settlements;
  • Cohabitation issues;
  • Same sex relationships;
  • Children disputes;
  • Child care issues.


Hathaways supports family mediation and we work in partnership with Family Mediation North East (www.familymediation-northeast.com).


Family Mediation can help separated couples unravel and resolve disputes about issues such as contact with children and finance and property matters. Family mediation is less stressful, has a high success rate and is quicker and cheaper than going to court.


We offer tailored made cost limitation packages to support the mediation process. For more information about these packages please get in touch.
