Our 7 most popular family law articles

At LGFL, we're proud of our extensive library of articles published here on our website. Covering a wide range of topics, these articles illustrate how we are interested in exploring the wider issues around separation and divorce. Many are, like our approach, child-centred, and share our insights on divorce being about much more than just the law.

These articles have resulted in lots of interest in our divorce and family law services, including local and national families, high net worth clients based abroad, and high profile/celebrity cases. That level of interest reflects the unique approach to family law that LGFL offer - and the child-centred successful outcomes we achieve.
