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.

Hi Sharon Thank you for the email. I wondered when we would hear. It's a strange feeling, I must admit. Perhaps a mix of relief and sadness. Thank you so much for helping me through it all. Your thorough understanding of the complex nature of our lives and businesses allowed us to finally make the break. I will be sure to recommend you if anyone needs a solicitor for similar matters. Hope you are keeping well.
