What I Do
Felicity Shedden has a reputation for innovation and excellence in dispute resolution. Our areas of expertise include:
I will advise you on all aspects of divorce and dissolution of civil partnerships. I will review the options for resolution with you and then manage the process as quickly and efficiently as possible in order to deliver a fair outcome for you.
I will provide expert advice on the financial consequences of divorce and separation, including areas such as pensions, family businesses and foreign assets. Ican also support you if a partner, spouse or family member has died without making proper provision for you, or leaving a valid will
I help you to resolve any childcare arrangements, agreeing where your child should live, or how much time they should spend with each parent. In emergencies, I advise on safeguarding the welfare of your children, including cases of child abduction and international issues.
Allegations of violence or abuse require great sensitivity and emotional awareness from your legal adviser. You can rest assured that your case will be treated with dignity and empathy throughout. At the same time, we’re not afraid to fight your corner to protect your position where needed.
I understands that every case is unique. I provide you with the support and advice you need in order to be able to move forward in the best possible way for you and your family.
There are a range of solutions ahead of you. I will work with you to understand what has happened and advise you on the options available, their benefits, potential disadvantages and their potential cost.
The actual procedure involved in family litigation depends enormously on the individual circumstances of your case and your solicitor will discuss this with you as and when required.

Our aim is to empower you to decide the most appropriate strategy for you and then to support you fully through that process.
