How we can help you

Our specialist family law law and childcare solicitors are here to help. We offer a full range of legal services covering all aspects of relationship breakdown including divorce, disputes over finances, property disputes, maintenance, cohabitation agreements, separation agreements, pre-nuptial agreements and domestic violence.

We also deal with care proceedings, guardianship, adoption, child arrangements and applications to take a child out of the country.

We operate a FREE Family Law Helpline on freephone 0808 139 1606, which you can call for initial legal guidance on any of these issues.

Why choose us?

We are one of the region’s most experienced and respected firms of family law and childcare solicitors. As members of Resolution our lawyers follow the Resolution Code of Conduct, adopting a non-confrontational, solution-focused approach. Our aim is to resolve disputes through the use of mediation, collaboration and arbitration, avoiding the stress and the costs of formal court proceedings.

Funding your legal fees

We have a range of funding options available to suit your pocket, including fixed fees and, where appropriate, Legal Aid.

For privately funded cases our family law and childcare solicitors can work to an agreed budget. They will be happy to provide an estimate of what it is likely to cost you at the outset. The tailored hourly rate service is more often than not the best way to ensure that you have the peace of mind of knowing you are fully supported through one of life’s more traumatic events.

We also offer ‘Family Law on Demand‘ which allows you to use our services on a limited basis for one-off tasks. You therefore only pay for the time we spend working for you as and when you ask us to, rather than paying us to deal with all aspects of your case from start to finish.
