Divorce and separation

In any "Top Ten" of the most stressful events in life, divorce usually features in the top three. Morton Fraser's divorce solicitors, based in Edinburgh and Glasgow, work in one of the largest, most experienced and consistently highly rated family law teams in Scotland.

We understand that you need expert legal advice from a team who understand what you're going through.

There are often many issues to consider at what is usually a difficult and emotional time. These can include:

  • Making suitable arrangements for children
  • Dealing with financial and property-related issues
  • The actual process of getting divorced.

The Mortons and the Frasers

It’s a family affair. Parents. Grandparents. Assorted sons, daughters, their partners, and kids.

Equal parts joy and mayhem. Our personal relationships, welfare and business, seamlessly managed together. There’s nothing quite like the modern family. A smarter, happier future starts here.

Clear advice

It may be that your situation is best resolved by traditional negotiation, but we also have skilled and experienced mediators, collaborative lawyers and arbitrators.  All these methods of reaching a resolution can play a role and we can help you choose the one that best fits your circumstances and your preferences.  We’re focused on practical solutions and we’ll always give realistic advice.  

Benefits we bring

At Morton Fraser we have one of the largest, most experienced and consistently highly rated Family Law teams in Scotland. We’ll give clear, expert and practical advice to guide you through what can be a complex area of law. We also have dual qualified specialists who can advise on English and International Law.

We are solution-focused and have a great track record in negotiating successful outcomes for our clients. We will encourage you to consider the use of mediation or collaborative law where appropriate. Where required we have the expertise to litigate effectively for clients, in the most complex of cases.

Our approach to fees

We understand that you need to get a handle on what our advice is going to cost. We offer fixed fee initial meetings where we can discuss the options with you. Wherever possible, we provide tailored fee quotes for much of our work. If that is not possible for all of the case, we will give you a clear indication of the likely cost.
