how to divorce without ruining your relationship

WELCOME TO
CATH KARLIN FAMILY LAW

Accredited family law. Changing the way we divorce. Support and advice

Hello,

Thanks for taking the time to visit my website.  I have specialised in Family Law for the past 25 years.  During that time, I have been a partner in leading Scottish Family Law teams.  Increasingly, I found myself doing more administration and supervision and less of the work that I really enjoy: meeting clients.  I decided to set up my own practice so that I can better devote my time to client work and structure my day around meeting your needs. I aim to provide you with “big firm” quality with a personal touch. Over the past 25 years there really is no family law issue that I haven’t encountered . I have also helped to change the landscape of how we go about divorce and separation in Scotland and have pioneered a move a way from the contentious and acrimonious  to the respectful and dignified divorce. I firmly believe that with the right support almost everyone can separate and divorce well. I want you to look back and feel a sense of satisfaction that you did all you could to achieve a good divorce. If you choose to work with me, I believe you can.
