Alison Barnett


I identify and negotiate practical and people focused solutions for a wide range of people at challenging times in their lives. I provide comprehensive advice based on my years of experience as a family lawyer.

  • Divorce
  • Financial orders on divorce including both complex cases with substantial assets and those with much more limited assets
  • Children issues arising from relationship breakdown both in respect of living and contact arrangements and financial issues
  • Separation, Prenup and Postnup agreements
  • Cohabitation agreements

Experience and qualifications

  • Over 30 years’ experience as a specialist family lawyer
  • I have a wealth of knowledge in all areas of family law advising and assisting clients in the South Manchester and Cheshire area and across the UK
  • I am a member of Resolution, the main organisation for family lawyers in the UK who believe in dealing with family situations in a sensitive, constructive and cost-effective way

What I do when I'm not being a lawyer

I enjoy spending time in my garden and socialising with family and friends. With three grown-up sons, my husband and I now have more time to get out and about.
