Client Quote

"I would like to say how fantastic Yuliya has been, I can only say that she has just been outstanding dealing with the endless problems and hurdles along the way. She was especially great at keeping me grounded when things were getting very stressed and heated... I am over the moon now that things have finally been settled."

Client Quote

I am an Associate Solicitor in Michelmores’ family team. I previously worked in another national law firm for nearly five years.

After working in Family Law for seven years, I have vast experience in financial remedy cases and disputes involving children, domestic abuse and enforcement proceedings. I am a litigation specialist focusing on complex children act proceedings and financial remedy proceedings that involve child abduction, enforcement of foreign orders and jurisdiction disputes.  However, I also undertake non-contentious work such as preparing and advising clients on pre and post nuptial agreements, cohabitation and separation agreements. I frequently undertake out of court negotiations and drafting consent orders.

I have been working with high net worth and international clients in cross-border cases for the past seven years which has allowed me to develop my experience and knowledge in international family law including cases involving international child abduction, enforcement of foreign orders in England and Wales and English and Welsh orders in other jurisdictions, financial disputes over foreign assets and international relocation. I had day-to-day conduct of a case involving the enforcement of international maintenance arrears which was heard in the Court of Appeal due to the complex issues of international law raised. I also advise clients in respect of domestic violence and making applications for non-molestation and occupation orders.

Recently my article on international service was published in the Resolution journal for family lawyers (Resolution is the national organisation of family lawyers) of which I am a member.

I speak fluent Russian.
