If Separation Seems Inevitable.

If you are married, in a civil partnership, or living with someone, the breakdown of a relationship is always a difficult time.

Our experienced family lawyers at AWB Charlesworth will listen to what you want and give practical and clear advice to set you on the right path for a brighter future.  

Advice and Support

Nobody plans to separate when they marry, form a civil partnership or live together. Therefore when it does happen, people often do not know which way to turn.  The distress of a relationship breakdown cannot be under-estimated particularly where children are involved. 

Every situation is unique, with different issues to be resolved, from arrangements for children, complex financial matters, division of pension funds and whether inherited assets form part of the matrimonial ‘pot’. Our advice is tailored to an individual’s needs.


Our aim is to support, guide and advise clients to assist them in making decisions that promote a fair outcome, which preserves relationships and protects any children of the family.   Alternatives to Court proceedings are considered, such as mediation, family arbitration or round-table meetings where both parties and their lawyers endeavour to negotiate a settlement in an informal setting.  

 Fixed Fee Preliminary Consultation

The most important thing is that you choose a lawyer that is right for your case.  It is essential that you feel comfortable with and confident in your representative.  Before you commit to anything, we will offer you a preliminary consultation for a fixed fee of £100.  We will help you understand your options and provide sensitive, impartial and honest advice for you to make choices.
