Foys Solicitors in Doncaster - One of the oldest and most respected law firms in South Yorkshire

At Foys Solicitors, we have served the Doncaster community since 1972, providing a wide range of necessary legal services.

Our business is split neatly into two areas: Personal Law and Business Law.

Fun fact: Did you know that the man who designed Doncaster Minster’s Clock, Edmund Beckett Dennison, also designed the clock in Big Ben in London?  Another intriguing fact is Dennison was only an amateur clockmaker; he was a barrister by trade.

Our family law services

Our family law services have helped the families of Doncaster and the surrounding areas of South Yorkshire achieving the outcomes that are best for them and their families. Our specialist family law solicitors have years of experience in all aspects of family law, giving you the confidence that we can help no matter what your circumstances are.

Some areas of our expertise include:

  • Divorce – Divorce is highly personal and has an impact on your future. Selecting a family law solicitor is a vital first step in starting this emotionally and legally challenging process.
  • Children disputes – Protecting the welfare of your children is our top priority and we are here to represent parents and children in issues that can affect them long term.
  • Domestic abuse/ injunctions – Family violence can be subtle or explicit, it can also range from physical, emotional to psychological. We will work with you to explore the options that can keep you safe.
  • Financial matters – Following the end of a marriage or civil partnership, dividing assets and liabilities requires a fair process which protects your legal rights.

Family law has evolved over the years and nowadays the emphasis is on mediation and reaching agreement outside of court, which is why we also have a team of accredited mediators with the right expertise to work with you. If litigation is necessary, we are also ready to represent you in court.
