What to Expect From Your First Meeting With a Family Solicitor

We understand the initial appointment with a family solicitor can be daunting. There is not only the emotional aspect, but also many unknowns when you first embark on the process.

That’s why our Family Law Department offers a free initial 30-minute appointment to all new clients, with no obligation for you to use our services, to hopefully reassure you and guide you through your initial decision making.

At the first appointment, we will discuss your circumstances, give you preliminary advice and inform you of your options so as to assist you in making an informed decision as to the best one for you.

We can provide advice regarding Divorce and the related financial aspects, Civil Partnerships, Unmarried Couples, Property Disputes and all matters surrounding the arrangements for your Children (including difficulties which have arisen in relation to contact).

We will also provide you with guidance and make recommendations to third parties, who may also be able to assist you in your circumstances (including counsellors and family therapists to support you through the process).

Please note

Just because you make an appointment with a solicitor, it does not mean you have to start a process. You will not be asked to make any decisions on the day. It is important to us that you have time to consider your options and make the right decision for you. The purpose of the initial meeting is to explore your options, without commitment.
