Carla Ditz



Carla is an associate at Family Law in Partnership. She advises on all aspects of divorce, children and cohabitation matters. Carla also has a keen interest in religious divorce, in particular the Jewish Get, and advises clients on what steps need to be taken and at what stage during the civil divorce process. Carla’s aim is to develop fair and practical solutions to the problems that may arise during family breakdown. She helps clients manage family disputes in the least confrontational way possible producing a positive, workable outcome for the family going forward. Where the involvement of the Court is necessary, Carla guides clients through the litigation process focusing on the specific needs of each client.

What clients say:

I engaged Carla to advise me on an unusual and complex matter. She was responsive to my concerns and prompt in her responses. Her advice was very thorough and showed great attention to detail.”

Representative matters:

  • Helping clients with limited resources to reach a settlement avoiding costly litigation.
  • Advising a client on their parental rights on divorce in circumstances where their former spouse had undergone fertility treatment with donor sperm.
  • Advising clients on Child Maintenance Service appeals when there has been a change in the financial circumstances of the paying party (‘Supersession’ applications).
  • Advising clients on non-molestation orders and occupation orders, where appropriate, in order to secure personal protection from spouses or partners.
  • Advising on complex financial and child related matters, often with an international dimension including Leave to Remove applications.

Carla is an active member of Resolution and a regular contributor to the Solicitors Journal. She has written a series of four articles on when and how children’s views should be taken into account in decisions about family breakdown. Read the articles “The Muffled Voice of the Child” here: Article 1, Article 2, Article 3 and Article 4. After graduating from the London School of Economics (BSc Accounting and Finance), Carla went on to complete her Graduate Diploma in Law and Legal Practice Course at the College of Law.
