Family Law.

Our dedicated Family Law specialists are here to assist with all aspects of Family Law.

We understand that family breakdown can be traumatic for all involved. In addition to the emotions involved, there are practical realities that need to be faced. What about the children? What about the cost of childcare? What about the house? What about your business? What about your pension?

Of course, Family law does not just apply where relationships breakdown. Are you a grandparent having trouble seeing your grandchild? Have Social Services contacted you regarding your children? Are you or your child at risk of a forced marriage? Are you a victim of domestic violence?
