- More about us
We are experts in Divorce and Family Law in England and Wales.
We have over 30 years of experience in dealing with divorce and family law as legal professionals with backgrounds as Solicitors, Mediators and Collaborative lawyers.
We firmly believe that everyone should have access to the best legal help regardless of their income or financial situation. That is why we started the Divorce & Family Law Specialists.
The Divorce & Family Law Specialists was founded by Marc Chaudhuri with the aim to bring affordable legal services to as many people as possible.
Marc founded his first practice in 2006 after spending many years working at some of the largest family law firms in the South of England. He has extensive experience in cases involving Divorce, Separation, Nullity, same gender relationships and all areas of matrimonial finance. He has considerable experience in acting for high net-worth individuals or cases involving complex financial arrangements.
Marc obtained a First Class Honours in Law at the University of Westminster, and a Master of Laws in Family Law and Family Policy at the University of East Anglia before completing his Post Graduate Diploma (Legal Practice Course) at the College of Law, London. He was admitted as a Solicitor in October 2003.
Marc is a Resolution trained Mediator and Collaborative Lawyer.
How we are different
We offer divorcing or separating couples a different and cost-effective way of dealing with their divorce & family law issues by working jointly with them to find the best solution.
We encourage the resolution of family law matters on a fair, non-adversarial and uncontentious basis. Both parties must agree to jointly use our services.
We are neutral and impartial, and we do not take sides. Using our knowledge, expertise and experience in family law and alternative dispute resolution, we advise, inform, assist, and guide a couple to reach the best outcome for them. We encourage the building of bridges, not walls.
We assist a couple with document preparation, legal information & procedure, and negotiation with a view to reaching an outcome that is fair and reasonable.
Unlike the traditional Solicitor model, we do not have retainers, 6-minute units, hourly rates, monthly bills, or deliver nasty surprises! All our fees are fixed and transparent.
In these challenging times all our services are provided online. This means – no taking time off work, no arranging childcare or travelling. We are here when you need us.
We are not a law firm or part of a firm of Solicitors, and we do not undertake reserved legal activities or conduct litigation. We are a specialist legal services provider with professional backgrounds in law.
We do not act for either of you, nor are we on the Court record. Accordingly, you are Litigants in person and are responsible for the signing of any documents that we prepare for you. You are also responsible for the filing of those documents with the Court and for the payment of any court fees.
We have no affiliation with the Solicitors Regulation Authority (“SRA”), or any regulatory body, form or organisations save for those expressly stated and therefore we are entirely independent. We will never have a third party contact you unless authorised by you.
We do not accept service of proceedings.
