DIVORCE AND SEPARATION
Professional Divorce Solicitors in Hastings and Brighton
When a relationship comes to an end, the process of separating can be stressful and emotional. Dividing assets, potentially moving home, and deciding on shared childcare arrangements is difficult at best, and can put a considerable amount of strain on your health.
Elaine Parkes Solicitors provide professional divorce and separation representation for clients across East Sussex, from our offices in key locations in Brighton and Hastings.
Our aim is to help you work through the separation process in as streamlined a way as possible, with expert advice on your rights and obligations to help you make sound, informed decisions about the right outcomes for your family.
While divorce itself can be a challenging experience, your financial matters should always be resolved with a calm oversight of the future, and so protecting your best interests is vital, whatever issues you are negotiating.
Drawing on our years of experience in the field, our solicitors are on your side to ensure proceedings are completed as amicably and quickly as possible.

- Childcare matters
- Property negotiations
- Shared business interests
Many of our clients feel daunted at the prospect of navigating the legalities of divorce proceedings, and so our role is to support you at each stage, with a steady hand to guide you through the processes.
Our family team are specialists in financial dispute resolutions, with outstanding negotiation skills. This allows us to secure positive outcomes and offer alternatives to potentially costly and time-consuming court proceedings. Services include mediation and arbitration to help you reach a fair outcome for both parties.
Support with Separation Cases in East Sussex
Elaine Parkes Solicitors can provide professional support in these situations, allowing you to proceed with a judicial separation to enable all parties involved to move on successfully.
We can offer expertise with all elements of a separation or divorce, including:
- Divorce proceedings or judicial separations.
- Financial settlements.
- Periodical payments and lump sum contributions.
- Pension sharing agreements.
