Sharon Montgomery

Partner, Collaborative Lawyer, Family Mediator

I am a Partner at Crane & Staples. I deal with any problems or issues that result from the breakdown of relationships within families, especially financial matters. This could be as a result of separation, divorce or civil partnership dissolution but it might also relate to the separation of unmarried couples.

I specialise in several areas of Family Law, including:

• Negotiating financial agreements on relationship breakdown
• Court applications regarding financial issues
• Nuptial agreements
• Arrangements for children
• Child Maintenance Service and maintenance issues.
• Inheritance Act claims

I am committed to non-Court based solutions to families’ problems wherever possible.

You can find out more about the services that we provide on the Family page.

Memberships and Positions Held

I am a member of Resolution, the Family Law organisation committed to assisting families in a non-adversarial way and putting children first. I am an accredited specialist with Resolution in relation to financial and children matters. I have also trained with Resolution as a Collaborative Lawyer and a Mediator.

As part of the services that we offer the community, I sit as Chair on the Welwyn Hatfield Domestic Abuse Forum.

I am also Honorary Solicitor to the Welwyn Garden City Housing Association.

Outside the office

When not in the office I like travelling, trying to de-stress by doing some gardening, and shopping with my daughter.

Sharon Montgomery is a skilled family law negotiator. She is firm when needed but she is also reasonable. She is also commercially astute.
