When both parties have access to the same impartial, expert advice, divorce does not need to be a battle.

The Divorce Surgery’s innovative solution enables couples to get the same expert, impartial advice from the same lawyer from day one. We are the only regulated service to offer this. Each couple leaves our service in an equivalent position, knowing what is legally fair and possible in their particular situation. By working together in our joint process, couples keep lines of communication open, so mistrust doesn’t build.


As lawyers we believe in access to justice as a fundamental right, not a privilege. We donate 1% of our profits to charities which promote access to justice for all.

Operating Ethically: Instead of being instructed by one party, we accept instructions from couples together as to what is fair for them both. We don’t take sides.

We are regulated by the Bar Standards Board, as are all of our barristers. Our clients can place confidence in our service.


We widely promote not only our service but all services which enable separating couples to get early expert advice, which we believe is crucial to successful separations.

Government: We remain committed to achieving policy change to enable every family to access joint impartial expert legal advice.

Business: We advise responsible businesses on how better to support colleagues and employees who are going through divorce.

Media: We regularly write and are quoted in mainstream press and academic publications.
