Top divorce lawyers in Winchester

Vardags are Winchester’s leading divorce and family law firm. Our objective is to bring City-quality divorce law onto the doorstep of those based in Winchester and Hampshire. Our team of top divorce solicitors work exclusively with high net worth families who have a combined gross income in excess of £150,000 and/or assets over £1m.

Many of our cases involve complex assets or private companies, many with an international twist. We also deal with straightforward uncontested divorce cases and our lawyers always seek to negotiate at the earliest possible opportunity.

Our President, Ayesha Vardag, known as “Britain’s top divorce lawyer”, lived in Winchester for many years and our Director of Financial Forensics, Stephen Bence still has a house in the city. The two were married in Winchester Cathedral in 2014.

Get the best possible financial result

Stephen Bence heads up a unique function within Vardags focussing on financial forensics. That involves making sure that all of the assets are properly identified and valued in order to secure the best possible outcome for our client. For the person controlling the family finances, Stephen will ensure that valuations are realistic yet conservative and that issues such as liquidity, tax and dependence on the breadwinning spouse are fully considered. For the person claiming, Stephen ensures that there is no non-disclosure of assets and that the assets have not been undervalued. Our top team of solicitors are able to secure litigation lending to fund your legal fees if you don’t have access to resources yourself. In many circumstances, they are also able to secure interim funding from your spouse.
