Family and Children

Dealing with family issues that include children is always a very difficult for everyone involved.

We have extensive experience over many years and can advise you on the legal process and the approach of the Court.  We are also members of Resolution, the national organisation of family lawyers committed to non-confrontational divorce, separation and other family problems.
