Does Slater and Gordon understand Islamic principles?
We fully understand and respect the need for Islamic divorces to be conducted in accordance with Islamic principles. This understanding extends to every aspect of the process: beginning with specialist and arbitration in accordance with Islamic principles.
We also work with a number of highly trained Muslim marriage guidance counsellors – both male and female – who can assist with the most delicate of issues. Importantly, our knowledge of both Islamic and civil law can help to unravel problems in divorces when you have had a UK civil marriage as well as a Nikah.

Our knowledge of Sharia law and Civil law means that we are able to assist even in the drafting of Islamic marriage contracts. These can incorporate that are enforceable under UK law, together with many other clauses that you may both wish to take advantage of before you marry.
The best solicitors to fight your corner! I struggled with a nasty unmarried couple dispute alone for over a year before biting the bullet and paying for proper legal support. I had one previous experience with a cheaper less well-known solicitor and I just felt completely let down and not a priority. But with Slater and Gordon, from start to finish, I felt supported 100% and valued. B L (family and personal matters case)
