Cheryl Hennesey

Senior Family Solicitor

Cheryl joined OTS Solicitors in Spring 2021 and is a specialist Family Law and Divorce Solicitor. She has over 20 years’ experience as a Divorce Solicitor with expertise in divorce, financial settlements and property disputes, private children disputes (child custody and contact, child abduction, international adoption and surrogacy and applications to take children overseas to live or to go on holiday), cohabitation agreements and unmarried partner disputes, separation issues, civil partnerships and marriages and domestic violence issues.

Cheryl has a particular interest in divorce financial settlements and has a proven track record of helping reach divorce settlements without the need for court proceedings, even where there are complex assets, such as a family business or overseas based property.

Cheryl works closely with the individual immigration team to assist those who have come to the UK and would like the security of a family agreement (such as a prenuptial agreement, postnuptial agreement or cohabitation agreement). Cheryl also has substantial experience of helping those who are worried about the impact of their separation or divorce on their immigration status or are concerned about a divorce and financial settlement because of jurisdictional issues or overseas based assets.

Cheryl is a member of the national organisation of family lawyers, Resolution and her Divorce Solicitor expertise is recognised by her accreditation on the Law Society Family Panel. Cheryl brings a compassionate and friendly yet professional and efficient approach to all aspects of family law.

In her spare time, Cheryl enjoys trying out new recipes, family walks and spending time with her children.
