Look no further for your Divorce Lawyer

Having a specialist in family law on your side during a divorce settlement is crucial, and our lawyers are fully accredited by the Law Society as Family Law Specialists. Our paralegals are also accredited, which is a hallmark of experience that you can trust. We leverage our expertise to support you and secure the best possible outcome for your separation.

Our law firm strives to be different by offering a unique fee structure based on the actual time we spend working on your case. We understand that every minute counts, and we don’t round up to the nearest unit like most solicitors do. For example, a 2-minute call is charged as a 2-minute call, and a 7-minute meeting is charged at 7 minutes, not 12. With us, you only pay for the time we spend working on your case, and you can view our full fees section for more details.

Client Testimonials

I would like to directly offer my huge personal gratitude for everything you have done. The process has been seamless in what is a very stressful and challenging time. My many thanks and wishing you all the best for 2022.


I approached Brian regarding my divorce, very helpful and professional and efficient through the whole procedure.


I used Rooney Family Law for my divorce and found them to be efficient and helpful. They were all very friendly and happy to answer any and all of my questions.


I contacted Rooney family law wth regards to arranging a contact order for my kids. The advice was excellent, the cost of the services are fair and actions on the back of our meetings/discussions are prompt.

Does everything he says he will and most importantly he got me access to my kids.

Couldn’t recommend Brian and the firm enough.

Very grateful for all the help so far



I used Rooney Family Law to deal with my divorce. They explained the process and my rights in an easy-to-understand way. Their level of communication was excellent. They are upfront about their fees which helped me decide to use them. I would recommend them to anyone who needs family law help


I shopped about a fair bit before selecting Rooney Family Law to deal with my divorce. I found their website to be well laid out and very useful. The fact that they are transparent about their fees on their site appealed to me. It was fairly complex as it involved a business, pensions and other financial matters. I engaged their services and they negotiated hard to achieve a fair settlement on my behalf. They were in constant communication throughout the process.

Friendly professional advice and service.I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them.


After spending a small deposit on a house with another law firm i decided to change, and i am so glad that i did. Brian Rooney and his team, achieved my divorce in a seamless manner, even through a pandemic ! There a communication was swift, and in the manner that i preferred. I’m hoping i don’t require the use of a family law specialist again but should i do i wouldn’t hesitate in using Brian and his team.


I had Brian deal with my divorce, him and his team were excellent through the challenging times of Covid, giving good advice and getting the job done. A big thanks to them all and I would definitely recommend this company. Best wishes for a prosperous future and thanks 🙏 for their guidance throughout the process.

Divorce & Family Law Services

At Rooney Family Law, we understand that going through a divorce can be a challenging time, particularly when children or finances are involved. However, we are here to provide you with expert guidance and advice to help you find the best possible solution for your situation. In Scotland, divorce is only possible when a marriage has broken down, and there are four grounds for this:

  • Unreasonable behavior
  • Adultery
  • Separation for over one year (if both parties agree)
  • Separation for over two years (consent is not necessary)


We offer various types of divorce services that may not require you to go into the reasons for the separation. You can find more information about each option on our website or by contacting us directly.

The quickest and most cost-effective type of divorce is the Simplified Divorce. This option is available if you have been separated for over a year and have no children under 16. All financial matters must be resolved before filing, as no financial claims can be made as part of this type of divorce.

Another type of divorce is the undefended Ordinary Divorce, which is suitable for couples with children under 16 and no financial claims. This procedure is relatively straightforward and can be dealt with by a local sheriff court in approximately 10-12 weeks.

If both parties can agree on the welfare of the children and the financial situation, the divorce process is more straightforward. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, a more complex divorce case may require mediation before being decided by the courts.

At Rooney Family Law, we are here to help with any family law issues you may have. You can contact us by messaging us or calling our helpline at 0800 779 7848. To learn more about our legal services, please visit our legal pages:
