Family Law


We aim to give you the benefit of our knowledge and expertise in a friendly working relationship. We do our best to be supportive and affordable and will always give you an estimate of the likely legal costs involved to help you to work within your budget.

We offer free 15 minute telephone appointments to see if we can help and advise on costs (including possible Legal Aid), but if preferred we also offer a 30 minute fixed fee face-to-face appointment which will include legal advice where it can be given for £90.00 (VAT included).

We can give you advice on all aspects of family law affecting both married couples or civil partnerships, partners living together and those who are separated.

What can we help you with:

  • Pre-Nuptial Agreements and Living Together (Cohabitation) Agreements
  • Divorce proceedings and separation of married couples
  • Civil Partnership issues
  • Finances and division of assets
  • Maintenance for you and your children

  • Emergency applications and personal protection in the event of domestic abuse (injunctions) (Legal Aid maybe available)
  • Removal of children from jurisdiction
  • Cases involving Social Services and Care Proceedings for which Legal Aid is available
