Family Law

Becket Chambers’ Family Law Team has a wealth of experience in all areas of Family Law, acting for divorcing or separating couples, parents, children (through Guardians) and wider family as well as representing local authorities in care cases. We understand the emotional impact that family law issues can have, and our barristers are sympathetic to our clients’ circumstances, and experienced in working with vulnerable people, as well as with highly sensitive issues such as abuse. Where injunctions are needed for you or your children’s protection, we offer a full service including out-of-hours emergency applications. Our experts in mediation, arbitration and collaborative law help to resolve matters out of court where possible, but we are there to fight your corner in court when needed.
