We are members of Resolution

Resolution is a community of family justice professionals who work with families and individuals to resolve issues in a constructive way. Resolution was founded in 1982 by a group of family lawyers who believed that a non-confrontational approach to family law issues would produce better outcomes for separating families and their children. Resolution members are committed to promoting a constructive approach to family issues that considers the needs of the whole family.


Amicable separations and divorces

If you’ve already worked out a plan that is agreeable to both parties, then we can help make it legally binding.

Collaborative law

If you want to deal with the issues you’re facing in a non confrontational way then we can help. We’ll meet with you, your partner and their collaborative lawyers to work out mutually acceptable solutions to your issues. Our skilled and experienced solicitors, who are members of Resolution, will keep the conversations focused on finding the solutions that will work for your unique situation.

Contested Hearings

If negotiation and mediation isn’t going to work in your situation then we’ll stand up and fight for your rights in Court.

Child visitation, residency, or maintenance

Making arrangements for your children following a family breakdown isn’t always easy. We’ll make sure that the children’s best interests are at the heart of every discussion and that your rights as a parent or grandparent are upheld.

Financial Settlements

Your future depends on an equitable split of your finances so we will make sure that all of the assets are on the table and that the division is done fairly.

Cohabiting and Unmarried Couples

We can also help with disputes between cohabiting and unmarried couples.

Domestic Violence and/or Abuse

If you have been the victim of Domestic Violence and/or Abuse our specialist solicitors (all of whom are members of Resolution) can help you.


We can also help Grandparents get time to spend with their grandchildren.

Change of Name

Finally, we can help with a Change of Name.




Very professional and helpful. I was recommended Helen by two of my friends. I had already spoken to another divorce solicitor but when I spoke to Helen she was very friendly and helpful and gave me more information upfront than the other solicitor so I decided to go with Helen and I am so glad I did. Helen is very professional kept in touch with me via email throughout the whole process and updated me regularly. It was a very smooth process and I was aware I could call or email if I had any further questions. She is a genuine sincere person who wants to help and get the best for you. I am very glad Helen was recommended to me and that two People have recommended speaks highly of her professionalism. I am more than happy with the service I received. Thank you Helen

Excellent support. I would highly recommend using this firm for divorce proceeding. Helen Boynton dealt with my proceedings and was quick, responsive and highly professional. I am so grateful for her support.


I would like to recommend Helen Boynton. She helped me get rid of the most slippery, narcissistic, awful man and still to this day she is right at the end of the phone when I need advice about his stupid games! Helen is a really lovely person and when going through such awful things its important to feel like you are speaking to a human being and someone who cares and Helen definitely ticks these boxes. Thanks as always Helen, couldn’t recommend you more.


I would like to recommend Helen Boynton, She is amazing and I just wish I had met her sooner when I was going through a divorce and had trouble with child care issues. She goes the extra mile to help people. She recently completed suicide awareness training just so she could learn more about the risks and issues some of her clients could be facing.


Helen advised and helped me through a very difficult divorce. She is a professional through and through and I cannot recommend her services enough!
