Experience the Best Family Law Care Services with Us
Navigating through family law matters can be emotionally draining and challenging. Such issues require sensitive and expert handling regarding children’s care, welfare, or parental rights. Our dedicated family law solicitors are here to provide comprehensive, compassionate, and competent legal support tailored to your unique needs.
Our team of legal professionals are more than just lawyers. They are problem solvers who aim to provide you with the best solutions that prioritise the welfare of your family. We adhere to the ethos of The Law Society Family Panel, the Solicitors Association of Higher Court Advocates, and the Children Law Accreditation, all of which we are proud members of.
Guided by the ‘Resolution’ principles, we strive to settle matters through negotiation rather than confrontation. We believe in conciliation but stay firm when it is necessary. We also prioritise clarity in our communication, ensuring you understand all aspects of the process and the likely costs involved.
Additionally, our specialist team of lawyers represent parents involved in proceedings involving the Local Authority (Children’s services). They provide guidance and support in the following situations:
- When the Local Authority wish to have a meeting to discuss the concerns that they have (called a Public Law Outline meeting)
- When court proceedings are issued for either an interim care order or interim supervision order
- In emergencies where an emergency protection order is required
