Family law & relationships

Our Family Law Team provides assistance and representation in all aspects of family law related matters and is recommended in Legal 500 (2013) for its "cost - effective advice" and case management skills.

We can help and guide you with the legal aspects that are relevant at the different stages of your life, including:

We offer a FREE half hour meeting at either our Salisbury or Southampton office with one of our family lawyers on all family law related matters.

We also understand that you may need advice outside of ‘normal office hours’ when it is more convenient for you to speak; we offer an ‘out of hour’s service accordingly.
