Family Law

Family-related matters can often be sensitive and fraught with emotion. With this in mind, our family law team led by Emma Wakeling, who is continuously recognised as a leader in her field, strive to make things as easy as possible for their clients.

If you need support and advice on family and matrimonial issues in Jersey, our approachable and people-driven team are here to listen and advise you in the most appropriate and amicable way, seeking the best possible outcome with the least amount of stress.

Emma and her team have a wealth of experience in all areas of family law from divorce and pre-nups to cohabitation agreements and maintenance. The team also benefits from the expertise across the firm to support on other issues for individuals, including Private Clients, Wills & Estate and Residential Property. This means that our clients have access to a wide range of leading legal advice within one firm.

From experience, we know that in most cases our clients prefer alternative routes to solution, such as mediation, and this will always be our first approach. Where this is not possible and clients find themselves having to go to court, we ensure we move things as quickly as possible, minimising the amount of disruption to the lives of our clients and their families.

‘Every member of the team that I have met and dealt with is very friendly, welcoming and compassionate. They made me feel at ease and gave me confidence immediately, that they would work hard to resolve my matters. They have all been so helpful and supportive, even allowing me permission to contact my lawyer directly out of hours if necessary, which was more support than I could have ever imagined and was very reassuring. I would have no hesitation in recommending the team at BCR Law.’ – Family Law Client, Legal 500 2024
