With offices in Colchester and Clacton our friendly and approachable family solicitors are each able to offer a free initial telephone chat to assess your circumstance and provide general information and, where necessary, work closely with colleagues who specialise in other areas of the law to provide you with complete and comprehensive legal advice.
We understand that when family issues arise it is often a very worrying and sensitive time, especially when children are involved. The solicitors in the TSP family team are all Resolution Members and have each recently been awarded the HSSF mark – Help and Support for Separated Families. Two of the solicitors in the team have specialist Resolution accreditations.
Our aim is to achieve the quickest possible settlement through a constructive dialogue with all parties concerned and we will work closely with you to achieve this. The team is committed to resolving disputes constructively and sensibly, and two of the team are Resolution trained Collaborative lawyers. However, when matters need to be taken to court, we will be there to support you each step of the way as long as we have not been dealing with the case under the Collaborative law process.
The TSP Family and Divorce law team can help with:
- Divorce and separation
- Ending a civil partnership
- Unmarried couples, ending an unmarried or cohabiting relationship

In terms of adult representation, areas of expertise comprise divorce and separation, cohabitation, same-sex relationships, injunctions, and pre-nuptial agreements, as well as business and property aspects. The practice also engages in matters concerning children, including residence, contact, parental responsibility, prohibited steps and specific issue orders.
