Our family solicitors will provide high quality advice for those experiencing a family dispute or crisis. The department is headed by Angela Thorp and supported by David Parkes who is also a partner in the firm.
Formally ending a relationship may have implications such as deciding where children should live, contact rights for the absent parent and the resolving of financial issues. This can involve dividing joint assets, making provision for maintenance and child support. We can assist in establishing a legal agreement such as a consent order or separation agreement to protect your future financial position.
Domestic violence can sometimes be a factor when relationships break down. Our family solicitors have experience in dealing with this situation and can advise on emergency protection for you and your family. These cases may involve applying to the court for an injunction.
Legal Aid is sometimes available for family cases but in the event it is not we can offer affordable services to meet individual needs. To find out if you are eligible for Legal Aid click here to visit the the Legal Aid Agency website. In the event that you are not eligible for Legal Aid we are able to offer a fixed fee meeting for just £75 + VAT at which we will give you a clear understanding of your options, the remedies available to you and the likely costs for the next steps.
