Family Law

Problems within a family can be extremely stressful and sometimes result in legal action. Family law is a branch of UK law which covers all such problems arising from family matters. Some of the most common concerns of family law include divorce and separation, and disputes over childcare.

When legal disagreements arise within a family, it is crucial that these issues are dealt with carefully and sensitively. By consulting a dedicated team of family law experts, you can be confident that the decisions you make as a family are fair and just for every party involved.

What does family law cover?

Family law is a wide area of the law which handles many disputes within families and relating to family matters, such as:

– Divorce and separation

– Adoption

– Child custody and visitation rights

– Domestic violence

– Guardianship

– Wills and inheritance

We provide our clients with clear, impartial advice on legal matters relating to family life. We understand how sensitive and stressful this field is, and our aim is to simply offer accurate advice and guidance on what the law says, and what your options are. Our final goal is always to secure the best outcomes for our clients.

Do we need a family lawyer?

For some matters, it’s advisable to consult family lawyers even when two parties agree. For example, in cases of divorce and separation, it’s important to consult an expert to ensure that your agreement is fair and to guarantee that legal formalities are completed in an accurate and timely fashion. If the agreement you have reached is not fair, we can help you to renegotiate a fairer deal. This will give you the peace of mind to sign divorce contracts knowing that you have done what you can to end on fair terms and also secure yourself against future claims.

Is family law confidential?

As experienced family law solicitors, we understand how sensitive much of this area is. If you or a member of your family has been a victim of abuse within a relationship, you can still contact a family law solicitor in complete privacy. We can also advise you on steps to protect yourself, such as contacting a local refuge or taking out an injunction. Whatever your concern, all family law consultations are completely confidential and are designed to ensure the safety and security of all of our clients.

Can I get help with legal fees?

Seeing a solicitor for matters of family law needn’t always be expensive. Many people are surprised to find they are eligible for legal aid in spite of their savings or assets. However, even when this is not the case, family law disputes can often be affordable and quick to settle, and many clients find that the security they have gained by consulting a solicitor is invaluable.
