Police Family Law
One of our key areas of business is dealing with separation/divorce issues for police officers.
Alison heads up the Police Family Law service and has over 20 years experience in family law and represents police officers of all ranks both via direct recommendation, a number Police Federations and the Superintendent’s Association. She has built a reputation of being a force to be reckoned with.
Alison considers herself part of the police family. Her father is a retired Superintendent and her partner is a serving police Detective Chief Inspector. She leads a team who specialise in dealing with police officers who are experiencing relationship issues.
Barnes Family Law deal with all aspects of family law. This includes divorce/dissolution proceedings, arrangements for children and the distribution of financial matters on divorce or separation.
We however recognise the unique difficulties that arise for police officers on separation and in particular in relation to their pensions. We are one of only a handful of solicitors nationally who have a full understanding of police pensions and how they can be dealt with on divorce which means we can give you the best advice possible in this area.
Alison has a specialist knowledge of pensions that is unrivalled. She has led training courses for other solicitors and was actively involved in assisting her local police force Federation to disseminate information to police officers about the 2015 pension changes.
We also offer a significant discounted rate to police officers nationally which means you are getting the best possible bespoke service which combines unique specialist expertise and advice at a rate that is less than you would pay elsewhere.
