Family Law

Our family team has specific expertise in cases involving domestic and child abuse. This is because some members of the team also undertake work within the criminal courts and therefore have a greater understanding of the complexities and consequences of such proceedings when dealing with their family cases. In addition, the multi-disciplinary nature of Devon Chambers ensures that the family team has regular access to the expertise of members of chambers who specialise in issues that can feature in family law cases, such as immigration, housing and mental health law.

The team has barristers at all levels of seniority and experience to provide a comprehensive, efficient and expert service. We are regularly instructed in complex and serious cases and pride ourselves on the high quality of service we offer in all cases in which we are instructed.

Our family team has been instructed in the following areas:

• Public law
• Care proceedings
• Findings of fact
• Adoption
• Threshold criteria
• Emergency applications
• Private law
• Child arrangement orders
• Parental responsibility
• Specific issues applications
• Out-of-jurisdiction issues
• Domestic violence
• Financial settlement
• Financial applications in relation to children
• Claims under the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973
