The Stephens Scown family team is independently ranked as the best solicitors for divorce and family law in the region.


Ending a marriage can be highly stressful. Apart from emotional issues there are practical matters that have to be dealt with – such as finances, property or business interests. And, of course, if there are children involved their interests are paramount. There are many decisions that have to be taken, all at a time when you are experiencing extreme pressure.  Getting advice from specialist divorce solicitors is key.

Our free advice

Before you take another step, it’s vital that you get the right advice. The best start would be to speak to our expert team. In your first meeting the first half hour is completely free of charge, and the advice is invaluable. We’ll talk about your situation and look at all your options, including your eligibility for legal aid or possible fixed fee arrangements.

Our team is friendly and approachable, with a great breadth of skills and knowledge in a diverse range of specialised issues. Including:

  • financial affairs
  • inherited wealth
  • prenuptials & postnuptials
  • international divorce
  • divorces involving businesses
  • specialist divorces

The best people to talk to

Our family law team has been ranked as the best in Devon and Cornwall by Chambers and The Legal 500, the two leading independent legal guides. Combining sensitivity with sound legal advice, you can rely on us to help you achieve the best possible outcome.

Our divorce solicitors recent experience and activities include:

  • cases involving complex trust structures where the trustees had to be joined as parties to the proceedings
  • actions involving high net worth spouses
  • financial negotiation and settlement where the parties jointly owned 20 properties
  • situations involving fraudulent divorce proceedings issued overseas resulting in the need for a Hemain Injunction to allow the divorce to be dealt with in England
  • cases where one party is resident overseas or has assets located abroad
