Family Law Solicitors in London and Staines
We started as a firm dealing with children cases, in particular those involving children subject to care proceedings, but we have expanded to deal with a wide range of family issues including both private and public law matters. We have offices in central London, south London and Staines.
Our clients include married and unmarried individuals, parents, grandparents and other family members, children, and local authorities in London and the South East. Our clients are based across the country as well as abroad, and we deal with international issues, as well as those within England and Wales.
Child Care Law
If Social Services are involved with your family or if your children have been taken into care, please contact our Child Care Law Team. We can provide advice to parents during pre-proceedings stages such as during the child protection process and PLO process. We are also able to represent local authorities, parents, children and other family members in care proceedings and other public law proceedings concerning children. We have extensive experience in very high profile care cases and cases involving serious injuries to the child.
Divorce & Separation Law
If you have separated from your partner and are having a dispute regarding children, finances or domestic violence, or simply wish to discuss the options available to you, please contact our Private Family Law Team. Many of our cases involve international elements and we are members of the International Child Abduction and Contact Unit’s panel of specialist solicitors . We understand that separation is not only emotionally difficult but financially difficult as well. We offer competitive rates, fixed fees and flexible payment options where possible, and can also assess your eligibility for legal aid.
Mental Health Law
Our Mental Health Team is one of the most well-regarded in the country and deals with cases from tribunals all the way to the Supreme Court. We can assist and advise clients who have been detained in hospitals under the Mental Health Act 1983, attend CPA meetings with clients and represent clients at mental health tribunals. We can also advise and represent clients living in the community under community treatment orders and clients who are on conditional discharge.
Whilst we are able to offer legal advice in relation to family law matters, our Mediation Team is able to assist those who wish to try other methods of dispute resolution to resolve their disputes in a more amicable and less contentious way. We can also offer MIAMs to individuals wanting to discuss alternatives to Court proceedings before issuing an application.
