Family Law Solicitors in Lincolnshire and across Central England

Taking Care of You and Your Family…

Sills & Betteridge have one of the largest family, divorce and childcare law teams in Lincolnshire and across Central England. We have specialist family solicitors and lawyers offering expert legal advice in Lincoln, Nottingham, Boston, Sleaford, Gainsborough, Scunthorpe, Doncaster, Thorne, Wath Upon Dearne, Bawtry, Grimsby, Northampton, Skegness & Spilsby. Our team are able to offer a truly specialist service in all areas of family law.

We have extensive experience of dealing with divorce and the financial issues arising from separation, including transfer of home, pension splitting and how the family business will be run post separation. We deal with cohabitation disputes, domestic abuse, financial provision upon death claims, disputes between parents over their children, child arrangements orders, child maintenance and child abduction and such issues as step parent adoption.

We can advise on and prepare prenuptial, postnuptial and cohabitation agreements.  We also advise on the very limited rights of cohabitees, despite what you may have heard there is no such thing in England as a common-law marriage.

We offer advice on issues affecting same sex couples, including civil partnership disputes, cohabitation agreements, LGBT parenting, adoption, surrogacy and contact with a child following a relationship breakdown.

We are one of the leading firms in Lincolnshire and across Central England dealing with child care proceedings. Our experience includes cases with foreign dimension. We can also assist if you are involved in adoption proceedings.

Our team includes trained mediators and collaborative lawyers. We are therefore able to offer the option of mediation or collaborative law in order to achieve settlement without the need for court proceedings. For further information on our mediation service please visit

Our family department also advises and represents clients before Special Educational Needs Tribunals and school governor panels.

All solicitors in our department are members of Resolution (formerly the Solicitors Family Law Association) and are committed to working in accordance with the organisation’s code of practice, which aims to minimise both the emotional and financial impact upon you.

We are committed to offering you a service which achieves settlement of your family disputes with your interests and those of your family coming first.
