Free Initial Chat

We only offer ‘free’ initial legal advice regarding family law matters to assess your legal position and get an overview of the situation.

Any advice given in these circumstances can only be in general terms and is not case specific.

The breakdown of a relationship can be one of the most traumatic periods of anyone’s life. Naturally, you will be concerned about your current financial and property arrangements and how it will affect any children you may have.

Our Family Team advises and represents clients in all types of family matters including divorce, co-habitee disputes, children and financial disputes and more.

If you would like a brief, free no obligation chat over the telephone we can arrange for one of our solicitors to be available at a time to suit you. Please contact 01536 276314 or 01536 276300 to arrange this.

We are used to advising clients in difficult emotional situations. We aim to provide sympathetic personal advice tailored to your individual circumstances and requirements. We offer prompt and practical advice on how to cope with problems and resolve them.

Solving family law problems often involves many other aspects of the law. Our Family Team can call on the expertise of other departments within the firm whenever necessary to advise.

Our Family Law Team has considerable experience in advising and representing high net worth clients but also clients from all backgrounds with all types of problems and disputes. Members of our team are members of The Law Society Family Panel and Resolution (formerly the Solicitors Family Law Association).

We can also help with changing your name via Deed Polls in our Kettering and Corby offices.
