Family Law

When you need someone to talk to about family matters, Crombie Wilkinson family law experts can offer guidance and assistance through difficult times.

Our legal team have a vast knowledge and specialist experience in family law, including representing children and parents in Local Authority Childcare proceedings. We encourage a non-confrontational approach to resolving problems whilst at the same time offering the firmness needed to resolve the situation as quickly as possible. Members of our team are Resolution and Collaborative Law accredited solicitors.

Some of the family law areas we specialise in are:

Separation and Divorce

Going through a separation or divorce is never easy, particularly when children are involved. We will work with all parties concerned to ensure a less stressful approach to handling this often delicate situation. 


Your Family First is our family mediation service offering an alternative means to a solution when communication has broken down. Across our York, Selby, Malton and Pickering branches we have mediation experts that can offer a constructive way to reach an agreement for both parties involved.

Financial Settlements

If you’re looking for a financial settlement or would like to discuss child maintenance, our family law solicitors can help. We work with you to achieve the outcome you’re looking for, offering a friendly, listening ear at all times.

Property Rights

Where there is property involved, be it one house or a vast property portfolio, our family team have successfully handled many property disputes between families. Often a particularly stressful situation due to the monetary value in question, we can ensure that your property dispute is resolved in a professional and non-confrontational way.

Child Arrangement Orders

When a couple separates or divorces, it is often necessary to apply for a child arrangement order which dictates where the child is to live and with whom they are to have contact with. These rules help to ensure the couple that is separating have a clear and concise understanding of their child’s arrangements, both presently and in the future.


When two people live together but they are not married, our family law team can issue a cohabitation agreement to provide legal reassurance and support when the couple in question do not have the same legal rights of a married couple. Over the last 10 years there has been a significant increase in cohabiting individuals and we can offer the necessary legal advice in each case.

Pre-nuptial Agreement

This is a contract drawn up between a couple before they actually get married. If you are considering having a pre-nuptial agreement drawn up, make sure you get the right advice for you and your circumstances before signing any documentation.

If you have a specific family law enquiry, please get in touch with a member of our team.
