Legal issues can arise when circumstances in your relationship or family life change. We believe that family and divorce law requires a rather different approach to many other areas of the law. Although we will usually explore alternatives to litigation—mediation, for example—we recognise that some cases demand urgent court action and will not hesitate to go to court to defend and protect the interests of our clients, especially in Domestic Violence cases.
We will deal with your case in a sensitive and professional manner, we pride ourselves on our high level of service which shows in our high referral rate.
We have undertaken considerable amount of - Care Proceedings cases (social services involvement), Wardship Proceedings (giving the court legal guardianship of the child), Non-Molestation Orders (Domestic Violence injunctions), Financial settlements, forced marriages orders.
We have been involved in complex cases involving international jurisdictions and Appeals.
We are unable to supply you with case examples due to family proceedings being private and to ensure the identity of the child is protected.
