Separation and Divorce

It may or may not have been your decision to separate, divorce or end a relationship, but the decisions you make on the process you choose for your divorce can impact you for the rest of your life. The aim of Sharp Family Law is to help you to make those decisions.


Children and Parenting

Most parents dealing with a separation or divorce want to put their children first but find it hard to keep them there, in the middle of all of the emotional and legal complications that surround them. With practical and legal advice, our goal is to help you reduce parental conflict and keep the children’s interests at the forefront.


Finance and Business

The uncoupling of most relationships has a significant financial impact on those involved. What was once shared by two must now be divided to support separate households. How you are going to manage in the future and what obligations you will have to others are some of the questions that we will help you solve.
