Help! I need a family law solicitor but I don’t know where to start!

Is this you?

Going to see a solicitor to discuss your family law issues can be a scary thing to do, whether you need to find out if you can get a divorce, or you’re having trouble agreeing how often you should spend time with your children, or you aren’t sure what to do with the house.

No doubt there are hundreds of questions whirling around in your head, friends have told you horror stories and you don’t know whether seeing a solicitor is even worth it.

If you haven’t had to do it before, you may not know what to ask or what to expect.

How do you decide what solicitor to use?

How much will it cost?

Will you have to go to court?

Will you be worse off?!

In this 3-part series, we aim to help you unravel the mysteries of how it all works so you can feel positive about taking that first step to getting legal advice and making the right decisions for your future.
