About Family Law
Whether you are married or unmarried; a parent or a grandparent; a high net worth individual or have modest capital and income; or have national or international family law issues; we are able to assist you.
Creighton & Partners are experts in the field of Family Law. Many members of the department are members of Resolution and accredited specialists. We are also on the Royal Courts of Justice International Child Abduction Panel. The firm is accredited by the Law Society for children law.
Our Private Family Department is headed up by Tony McGovern, a partner at the firm. His expertise in family law was recognised when he was shortlisted for Partner of the Year at the 2012 Family Law Awards. We have an experienced team with offices in central London as well as in Staines upon Thames, covering the Surrey and Middlesex areas, although we also deal with cases nationally and internationally.
We understand that resolving legal issues following the breakdown of a relationship can be expensive so we are upfront about our fees. We ensure that we offer fixed fees where possible and are happy to discuss alternative methods of payments or levels of work which you require assistance on. Legal Aid was drastically reduced in April 2013 and we understand that many individuals may struggle with legal costs.
We deal with cases at all stages of the legal process from mediation and discussions through to cases in the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal. We are a specialist firm of family law solicitors, who keep up-to-date with new and emerging areas of family law.
We have a range of specialist lawyers many of whom are members of Resolution. Resolution’s members are family lawyers committed to the non-confrontational resolution of family disputes whenever possible. Our solicitors encourage solutions that consider the needs of the whole family - and in particular the best interests of children. We also have trained collaborative lawyers who specialise in mediation and alternate dispute resolution.
If you wish to contact us, we can assure you that you will either be put through to, or receive a call back from, one of our family law specialists who will be able to discuss your case and the options available to you.
