Difficulties with family relationships or finances can cause a great deal of stress. Our family law solicitors are specially trained to advise and guide you through the complexities of family law to find an outcome that works for you. Whether you want a divorce, legal arrangements for your children or to mediate outside of court, we can help.
What is a Family Lawyer?
A family lawyer specialises in areas related to families including relationships, children and property. Our solicitors have years of experience in dealing with this sensitive topic and will handle your case as sensitively as possible.
Areas of Family Law
Family law covers a number of sensitive topics. Our family solicitors in Wakefield, Horsforth and Dewsbury can give you advice and assistance with the following issues.
We work hard to make sure your divorce proceedings are as stress-free and non-confrontational as possible. We don’t want to make a difficult situation even harder so we help you every step of the way. From preparing or responding to a divorce application to the final conclusion of your marriage, we’re here to make sure you get the best outcome possible with the least amount of upset.
Divorce Solicitors Advice
If you have decided to start divorce proceedings, our divorce solicitors are available to talk you through your options and the consequences of each. Get in touch for a free consultation.
Regardless of the legal advice you need, our family lawyers always put the needs and best interests of your child first. Whether you want to arrange a custody agreement, need advice on parental responsibility or are concerned about the safety of your child, we work hard to ensure their happiness and wellbeing is at the heart of what we do. We can also help if you are taking care of your grandchild, need assistance with social services, wish to change your child’s name by deed or want to move abroad with your children.
Child legal advice
If you need legal advice relating to your child, we’re here to guide you through the difficulties you may be facing. Contact us today or request a call back and we’ll discuss your case in a free consultation.
Organising your finances before something goes wrong with your relationships is sensible. It ensures that any future difficulties are kept to a minimum and your assets are protected. Our family solicitors can help draw up cohabitation or pre-nuptial agreements which take into account property, any businesses you own and pensions. We can also help divide your assets and finances if you are in the process of a divorce.
Couples who live together don’t have the same legal rights as married couples. A cohabitation agreement can protects your assets if your relationship breaks down and help to guarantee your rights. It can provide certainty and make a difficult situation that little bit easier. If you and your partner would like to draw up a cohabitation agreement, get in touch for a free consultation.
A pre-nuptial agreement (sometimes referred to as a ‘pre-nup’) is a useful way to protect your personal assets if your relationship ends. It’s a ‘just in case’ legal document that can help make breaking up as straight forward as possible. If you would like to discuss a pre-nup, get in touch for a free consultation.
If you want to settle your legal matters outside of court, we can help mediate. Family Mediation is often a quicker and cheaper alternative to court. Mediation means that you and your partner work together to determine the best for your children, finances and property. Our trained resolution mediators will help you both come to an agreement and will draw up all the necessary legal documents without having to go to court.

Family Law – Frequently Asked Questions
We will be upfront with you from the very beginning about how much your case is likely to cost. We’ll also make sure you know if the cost is likely to change as your case progresses.
For certain cases, we offer a fixed fee arrangement so you know straight away how much you will have to pay. We can also arrange payment plans if you can’t afford to pay upfront.
Some cases may be eligible for Legal Aid and if you qualify, we’ll let you know.
Family law issues can become unexpectedly complicated quite quickly. The decisions you make now can have a serious impact on the rest of your, and potentially your child’s, life.
