Divorce and Family Matters, Dawson & Burgess Solicitors, DoncasterMatrimonial and Separation

Divorce or relationship breakdown can be a stressful and emotional time. You have important decisions to make about your future, your children, your finances and possibly your business.

Our Divorce and Family Law Department can help you decide what is right personally, legally and financially, both for you and your family.

We can help not only with divorce and separation but also with other family issues such as pre-marital agreements and agreements for couples who live together outside of marriage.


Family breakdown can often lead to parents experiencing problems relating to care and contact with their children. We look at each individual case and advise on the best course of action so that you can maintain family relationships.

If you have a problem seeing your children or you have good reasons to deny contact between your children and your ex-partner, then contact us.

Domestic Violence

If you are subjected to violence, intimidation and harassment at home and you need to secure the safety of you and your children then call us straight away. Our Family Department is there to help.

Our aim is simple – to get the right outcome for you.

Our specialist family team will always act with your best interests in mind. We believe that Court should always be considered the last resort. That is why we will explore other alternatives first, such as mediation.
