Divorce lawyers for women

We will work with you towards a life beyond your marriage. Our commitment to empowering our clients to build up their independent lives is unwavering, and we will fight tooth and nail to safeguard your future.

When you are going through the upheaval of divorce, it’s more important than ever to feel assured that your financial security is not in jeopardy. Whether you are the breadwinner, the homemaker or have substantial assets in your own name, our unique combination of commercial understanding and legal expertise will help you to obtain the best possible settlement from your divorce.

It is unacceptable for someone to misrepresent their finances in court to avoid giving their partner their fair share. Our financial forensic team will leave no stone unturned to track down and value your spouse’s assets.

You may be in a position where your partner has substantial funds but you do not have access to money to support yourself or afford legal fees. If this is the case, we may be able to apply for interim maintenance and provision for legal fees so that you will not be left stranded after your relationship has broken down.

We understand that your child’s best interests come first. At Vardags, we work closely with you to find pragmatic solutions for your childcare needs and achieve a fair child maintenance arrangement. Should you or your partner wish to live abroad with your child, Vardags has substantial experience dealing with leave to remove applications and will work with you to get the best outcome for your child.

In the majority of cases, the child contact arrangements that work the best are those which parents agree on together. Our lawyers are adept at taking a conciliatory approach to proceedings to settle matters as smoothly as possible. Reaching an agreement this way is, however, not always possible. We never shy away from tenacious litigation when necessary in order to protect your child’s best interests.

No one should live in fear of a spouse or ex-partner. If you have been subjected to physical, emotional, or financial abuse, or feel vulnerable to such abuse, the family courts will seek to protect you. Vardags advises on domestic abuse and harassment matters with care and sensitivity. We have extensive experience in non-molestation and occupation order applications and act quickly and with the strictest confidentiality, your safety being our utmost priority.

If you are subjected to physical violence, or the threat of it, you should contact the police immediately.

We offer a free consultation to qualifying individuals. Please call our confidential enquiry line on 020 7404 9390 or email us. Lines are staffed 24 hours.

You may be eligible for a litigation loan

If your spouse controls the family finances, you may be worried about how to find the money for your legal fees during a divorce. But this need not prevent you from accessing the best legal advice to fight for what you deserve. 

Whether you and your spouse built-up your fortune during your marriage, you married someone who already had money or you have had a child with someone with money, it is likely that you are entitled to very significant assets or income. But accessing this wealth now that you are separated may be difficult, restricting your ability to afford the very best legal representation for you and your family during your divorce.

What options are available to fund my case?

If your spouse is not prepared to pay your divorce fees, you may be eligible for a litigation loan. This specific type of lending allows you to secure any assets that you or your partner have, such as your former matrimonial home, against a loan that will cover your legal fees. This loan is then paid back at the end of the case.

A litigation loan is rigorous and transparent, and will grant you access to a top divorce lawyer who will ensure that you get your fair share. Vardags is experienced in securing litigation funding for its high net worth clients and has strong relationships with a select pool of the very best funders around. We also know when best to apply, and exercise careful judgement in determining when to pursue claims.
