Overview

Greene & Greene’s Family and Matrimonial specialists are recognised, qualified experts who have in-depth practical expertise in all aspects of family and / or relationship disputes.

Each member of the Family Law team, which includes a qualified Mediator, has experience in acting for parties in divorce proceedings and associated financial proceedings.

The team has successfully represented mothers, fathers and grandparents, as well as separating cohabitees in proceedings concerning children.

Each of its lawyers understands that family issues can be acutely personal and sometimes very difficult to resolve. Every member of the team is therefore committed to dealing with each case thoughtfully and sensitively and has the requisite knowledge and understanding to represent the interests of clients to the highest possible standard.

Nuptial Agreements now form a significant part of the team's work and Greene & Greene is considered the leading firm in West Suffolk in their preparation.

The team also adopts an integrated approach often cross-referring clients throughout the firm and working collaboratively to obtain the best outcome for clients.
