Family Law

At Band Hatton Button we have a team of highly experienced family law solicitors specialising in a broad range of divorce and family law services.  All our lawyers are members of Resolution – First for Family Law and work to promote a conciliatory approach to the cases they deal with.

Our team understand how difficult and worrying issues around separation and divorce can be, especially where children are concerned, and we can help ease the stress and your concerns.

All our family lawyers will be happy to speak with you on the telephone first to deal with your initial enquiries and give you further information in relation to your options, without any charge or further obligation.

Thereafter we offer very competitive fixed fees on a broad range of standard services such as divorce proceedings and meetings to provide detailed advice or case review. For more complex needs we have the knowledge and experience to be able to give clear information in relation to what you can expect during your case and how much it may cost.

Avoiding conflict and court

There are many 'non-court' methods available to help resolve issues arising upon separation and divorce, which are currently underutilised, and which remain largely unknown to many who are separating.  These options include Mediation, Arbitration, Early Neutral Evaluation, Collaborative Law, One Couple One Lawyer, Private FDRs, and Round Table Meetings.

We offer an Options and Information meeting, where we explore all the available options, including collaboration with other professionals, so that we create a way forward that is tailored to best meet the needs of every client and their family.

Our approach helps separating couples and families make their own decisions and achieve a positive outcome with minimal stress and anguish.

Tracy Cross, the Head of our Family Department, is an Accredited Mediator and can assist with all issues within this process which provides a valuable alternative to litigation.  Tracy can provide all forms of mediation including Child Inclusive mediation and Hybrid mediation, ensuring that all can take advantage of the process in a way that supports them.

Tracy has also qualified to assist as ‘One Lawyer, One Couple’ so that options can be explored together and where circumstances permit, all issues can be resolved without the need to instruct opposing lawyers.

Tracy is recognised as a Leading Individual in the Legal500 professional directory as well as in Chambers and Partners in their Spotlight Table of Ranked Lawyers for Family/Matrimonial : mainly ADR, the only person to be so recognised in the Midlands area.

Tracy Cross is also a trained and very experienced Collaborative Family Lawyer so that individuals can take advantage of the collaborative law process.
