Matrimonial & Family Law


Haldanes’ multi-award-winning Matrimonial and Family Law team has earned a reputation throughout the region as one of the foremost legal teams.

Our lawyers’ approach to matrimonial and family law stresses the importance of combining a comprehensive knowledge of this specialist area with a sympathetic understanding of the client’s needs.

Highly Experienced in Divorce, Child Custody and Matrimonial Matters

Our law firm is home to some of the most experienced family and divorce lawyers in Hong Kong, who bring their knowledge, expertise and sympathetic guiding hands to each and every case.

Our family and divorce lawyers provide a broad range of advice covering all aspects of matrimonial and family law, including child custody, property division, pre-nuptial agreements, liquidation of assets, reconciliation, separation, divorce, custody, wardship and child abduction.

Their ability to advise clients involved in jurisdictional disputes is particularly important in Hong Kong, with its multi-national community.

Cost-effective Approach

Our family and divorce lawyers have also advised clients on alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods, particularly mediation, to resolve matrimonial disputes.

Based on their years of experience working with clients from all walks of life and in a wide range of circumstances, our lawyers see great value in providing clients with timely advice concerning these practical, cost-effective and less confrontational methods of mediated settlement negotiations.

Our sympathetic team will guide you every step of the way to protect your best interests.

As an extension of this practice, several practitioners have obtained accreditation as mediators with experience in matrimonial matters.
