What our clients say

What is family law?

Family law is a broad area of legal practice that focuses on issues involving family relationships and lays out the rights and responsibilities of family members.

While it is primarily associated with divorce proceedings, it covers many areas that impact on people’s personal and family life, including finances following separation, dealing with domestic abuse, child law, surrogacy, adoption and nuptial agreements.

What can your family solicitors support me with?

We’re one of the most sought-after law firms of family solicitors who are experts in:

Divorce

In 2021, there were 113,505 divorces granted in England and Wales. This was a 9.6% increase compared with 2020’s data. While these figures suggest divorce is increasingly commonplace, that doesn’t ease the anxiety you might experience during this difficult time.

With us, you can confide in the UK’s largest team of divorce solicitors and be guided through the procedure with empathy and care. This applies whether you’re seeking support for an international divorce or an out of court divorce settlement. We’ll help you apply for a divorce and reach a fair financial settlement. Our family lawyers will help you with the difficult conversations – and we’re pleased to say that over 81% of our cases settle out of court.

Our divorce services

Financial matters

There’s no denying the profound impact that financial worries can have on anyone’s mental health. Whether you’re caught up in financial matters because of a family breakdown involving inheritance, pensions, income, debts or something else, our family lawyers will work with you to reach a conclusion that will benefit you and your family.

Our team works alongside in-house forensic accountants and finance professionals so that you can access specialist knowledge and understanding when needed.

Our financial services

Child law

Child law is a sensitive area that requires a high level of care and compassion. Statistics show that between January and December 2022, there were 16,362 cases started under public law and 52,219 cases started under private law regarding the Children Act (1989). Fortunately, we have expert child law family solicitors in all of our offices. We’re here to help you navigate this complicated area of the law and beyond.

Our family law solicitors have helped families in various circumstances. These range from finding a resolution for child arrangements to helping people through surrogacy and adoption.

Family law solicitor FAQs

Family law solicitor FAQs

  • Why do I need a lawyer in a family law case?

    Family law is a complex and diverse area of law, and cases can quickly become complicated, with potentially far-reaching implications on your life. It is important to seek advice from a family law specialist to ensure that you prepare for and complete paperwork and applications correctly, and ensure that the information you need is gathered together and easily accessible.

    A family lawyer also understands the processes at each stage, be it a divorce application, financial consent order or a child arrangements order, the complex language and jargon used, timeframes, and what is likely to be accepted and approved by the court, if required.

    They also help take the strain and dial down the stress, so you can approach your case with the support you need to make well-informed decisions from a calmer and more measured place.

  • Do you provide additional support outside the case?

    We understand that family law cases can be sensitive, so your family solicitor will build the right team around you and work closely with a range of other professionals including divorce coaches, financial planners, pension experts, tax experts and mediators.

    You can also access a range of free resources including our view our blog, podcast, videos and guides to get a better understanding of the different areas within family law.

  • How do I arrange a consultation with a family lawyer?

    To arrange an initial consultation with one of our family lawyers, get in touch by sending an email to [email protected] or by calling us on 0330 191 4938. You can also fill out our callback form or contact your local office directly.

  • How much does a family law solicitor cost?

    We offer a variety of packages depending on the type of issue you need support with.

    Using divorce as an example, we offer a fixed-fee package as well as an hourly rate package, which tends to be more appropriate for complex cases. Our family lawyers will discuss your options and circumstances with you and estimate how much work may be involved.

    This way, you will receive transparency on the estimated costs. Please note that while we make our estimates as accurate as possible, due to factors outside your family solicitor’s control costs can change. However, you will be updated on this at every step of the process.

  • Is there support available to fund my case?

    You may be able to fund your case using an external lender. They offer tailored funding to cover legal costs, taxes and fees. In some cases, you won’t have to pay anything until the case has finished.

    While we can’t recommend providers, we have working relationships with lenders such as Ampla, Novitas and Level. You should seek financial advice before considering a loan application. We do not offer legal aid but it may be available in certain circumstances.

  • What is mediation?

    Many legal cases use mediation so that disputes can be resolved fairly. A mediator is a neutral, independent person involved in the process. It is important to note that a mediator cannot provide legal advice – your family solicitor will support this aspect before and during mediation.
