If your Local Authority has started or is about to start proceedings in respect of your children then we have the expertise to help you.

We have experience to deal with these situations in a calm and caring manner. We have Law Society accredited staff on hand to help you and guide you through every step of the process. We will always treat you with respect and understanding. We understand what a difficult time this can be and so we aim to help you in every way we can, representing your best interests throughout.

If you and your partner are going through a divorce or separation and you have children, it’s natural to worry about how they will be affected. Who will they live with and when will they see their other parent?
We understand that this is a difficult time. We have years of practical and legal experience in this area and can help you reach an agreement that works best for both you and your children.



Our family law team will support you and offer expert advice on a range of issues that will affect you and your children, including:

  • Where children should live (known as ‘residence’)
  • Who the children should see and when (known as ‘contact’)
  • Financial claims for maintenance
  • Change of name, school and other specific issues

We can also offer advice to grandparents who may be worried about what will happen following a divorce or separation.
