Helping to support you and your children at a difficult time.

The issues concerning your children following the breakdown of a family relationship can often be the most challenging following a separation.  It is essential to ensure that both parents and children are fully supported during what can be an emotional time when you might be unsure of what the future holds.

To help you at this time we are able to offer an initial fixed fee Family Law  package  which includes  a consultation with one of our solicitors  for up to one hour, to discuss your particular situation and provide advice on the best way forward for you, together with a written summary of our advice. The fee for this package is  £250 plus VAT at 20% plus a £4 fee for the cost of an online  client ID check.  You will be under no obligation to instruct us to do anything more following that consultation,  but if you do choose to instruct us further, we will explain what the costs of your case might be.

Fiona Coutts discusses things to consider when you have children and are going through a divorce or separation in this YouTube video.

As Fiona explains in the video above, decisions in relation to “residence” and “contact” (previously referred to as “custody” and “access”) as well as “parental rights and responsibilities” and  the requirement to obtain the views of your children require to be carefully considered and balanced within the legal process.

Our Family Law Team have many years of experience assisting families with these issues.  We can offer you the legal knowledge, experience and support to achieve the best outcome for you and your children, not only in the short term but also in relation to the long term future as your children grow and develop. We always strive to help you resolve matters by minimising any acrimony in order to protect your children as new arrangements are made.

To arrange an appointment to discuss your family’s needs, please contact one of the Family Team who will happy to meet with you and begin to assist you with your bespoke journey.
