When it feels like your world is falling apart and you are about to embark on a daunting legal process, our divorce services are here to provide instrumental support and guidance.
CourtTogether was created to provide emotional and legal support to litigants in their most challenging times. We do the handholding, the thinking, and the explaining, so you feel in charge and empowered.
Divorce is a highly stressful experience, especially when you consider the divorce itself, the impact on your children, and the financial pressure. You must be fully prepared for each stage of the process and understand the steps.
When dealing with qualified family solicitors alone, costs can quickly escalate. In my case, this came to over £80k (read more).
The process can be complex, emotional, and cruel if your approach is not carefully planned and thought out.
Our ‘Better Not Bitter’ divorce coaching, alongside the case management, is a unique transformational mindset that will help better prepare you to tell your story in court. We will guide you and advise on the potential outcomes by fully understanding your case and providing a personal approach to achieve the right outcome. This emotional support is something CourtTogether prides itself on. You do not get that level of personal advocacy from most regular high-street solicitors. We fight your corner. We are the ‘Erin Brockovich’s’ of the divorce trade.
As a trusted McKenzie Friend, we offer an affordable end-to-end divorce support service (in addition to one off-court assistance) to help you to emerge ‘better not bitter’ and able to move on with your life.
McKenzie Friends arose from the 1970 divorce case of McKenzie v McKenzie. In that case, the husband was representing himself and wanted the help of someone who was not legally qualified in the English Courts. His request was refused. McKenzie appealed the case. It was subsequently held that allowing moral Court support was equal to having a fair trial under the European Convention on Human Rights. Therefore, any such assistants/supporters are referred to as a 'McKenzie Friend'.
Through hands-on case experience and legal know-how, we can advise you on what to write in a legal document or conduct yourself with the other party. This kind of service increasingly mirrors that of a solicitor but at a more affordable rate. A McKenzie Friend can improve access to justice by providing valuable support for litigants in person. Attending Court can be a daunting experience, particularly for those who have not been before. So many litigants feel encouraged to have someone who has been in the situation before sit with them and reassure them.

"I employed CourtTogether to deal with a difficult and complicated UK child relocation case. I found Anita to be diligent and tenacious providing clear and concise advice to an emotionally charged situation. Court Together is different to main stream legal advice in that you receive both legal and emotional support, both of which were gratefully received. Thank you for all your help I would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone."
"Highly recommended service by CourtTogether. I used them on my court documents and attendance in court. I will definitely use them again if I need them in the future."
Who we are working with
Direct Access Barristers
You can be a Litigant in Person and still use a direct access barrister for your hearings. We help you with the selection process and the briefing.
Financial planning is often part of the divorce process. Choosing a safe pair of hands in a time of uncertainty is crucial to life after divorce. We help you get your financial paperwork ready for discussion.
If you need to go down this route, we ensure that you select the right provider. They need to be accountable to a professional body (ABI), data protected and deliver methods that are clear, compliant, and meeting the client’s expectations.
