I engaged the services of Goughs Solicitors in Trowbridge, in particular Ailie Peacock, to act on my behalf for the sale of my house. Ailie was always clear with her advice, acted in a timely manor and answered any questions I had almost immediately. She was very proactive in dealing with the other parties involved in a slightly convoluted chain.
Ailie also managed a very late request from our buyers with calm efficiency and the utmost professionalism. The end result was a smooth sale and completion, with remarkably little stress on our part. I would not hesitate from using them again.
Clear concise advice
Quick response to e-mails or phone calls. Will certainly use again in the near future. Clear concise advice patiently given!
Mr Ian Liddle
Excellent service as usual.
Superb once again.
Superb once again. Goughs provides outstanding service... professional in getting the job done and conducted with grace and care. Thank you Goughs!
The solicitor I dealt with at Goughs, Rhianna Cole, was an absolute star, I cannot fault her in any way at all. She made everything in the situation I was in so easy to understand, and she guided me through an extremely stressful time, with extreme professionalism, yet a very personal and sensitive touch. Can't big them up enough.
Made first-time buying a (relatively) simple process!
Sophie was very attentive and responsive and understood the need to act quickly in regard to our purchase process. She was diligent with the paperwork and was very easy to talk to and clear at explaining what was required in terms of action from our side and from the seller.

Very calm and clear
My lawyer was very calm and clear and she put me at ease during a very stressful time. The outcome was exactly as I'd hoped.

Your divorce and separation questions answered
Anyone who has been legally married for over a year can initiate divorce proceedings if the marriage has irretrievably broken down due to one of the following ‘facts’;
– Your spouse has committed adultery and you find it intolerable to live with him or her.
– Your spouse has behaved in such a way that it would be unreasonable to expect you to continue to live together.
– Your spouse has deserted you for a continuous period of two years or more.
– You and your spouse have been living separately for two years or more and your spouse consents to the divorce.
– You and your spouse have been living separately for five years or more, whether or not your spouse consents to the divorce.
A lot of our clients are understandably concerned about protecting their finances in divorce proceedings. Click here for more information.
If you and your partner agree on your divorce terms and the reasons for the divorce, getting a divorce legally finalised will ordinarily take 4 to 6 months.
It is likely to take longer if you need to sort out issues relating to money, property or children, as these will all have to be dealt with separately.
For advice tailored to you and your circumstances, an experienced family lawyer will be able to provide further guidance. Book your free consultation today.
