Family Law




Victoria Varty is a partner in our Family Law team based in our Edinburgh office.  She handles all aspects of family law, including resolving financial issues which arise from the breakdown of relationships and disputes concerning children.

Victoria believes that wherever possible resolving disputes by negotiation or mediation is in everyone’s best interests.  However, when necessary, Victoria is an experienced litigator at all levels.  She has conducted a number of proofs in the Sheriff Court, and is regularly instructed not only by individuals but by other solicitors throughout Scotland to deal with complex or high value family actions raised in the Court of Session.  She also has considerable experience of litigating in the appellate courts of the Sheriff Appeal Court, Inner House and UK Supreme Court.

Victoria has a particular interest in cases with an international dimension and often receives referrals from clients, solicitors and Counsel in cases involving relocation or international child abduction.  She regularly advises other solicitors across Scotland who have queries relating to child abduction cases and is instructed by both the Scottish Government and individuals in these actions.

Victoria enjoys building relationships with her clients and working with them in an empathetic manner to try and reach the best outcomes in what can be emotionally difficult circumstances.

Victoria trained with Drummond Miller, and was assumed as a partner in 2014.  She is a Notary Public and a member of the Family Law Association.  She sits on the Family Court User’s groups of both Edinburgh Sheriff Court and the Court of Session.
