Family Matters

When a relationship breaks down the emotional and practical fallout can be far-reaching. Our specialist family lawyers provide the pragmatic support needed to make the very best of a difficult situation.

Our lawyers believe in getting you the right result as quickly, inexpensively and amicably as possible. We are members of Resolution, a family law association which promotes a non-confrontational approach to resolving family problems. Firmly on your side, resolute in our support for you, we will guide you through the process making sure you understand what is happening every step of the way.

No family is the same, and no family problem identical. Our solicitors make sure they understand exactly what your situation is and how you would like it to change. Whether it is a separation or divorce from a spouse or partner, an incidence of domestic violence, or putting in place arrangements for child contact, we are expertly placed to advise on your rights and to help bring about the best solution.

This need not involve a bitter courtroom battle; in fact that is never something we would recommend. We have experienced tacticians, negotiators and mediation specialists who help you resolve issues less expensively and less acrimoniously. We also have collaboratively trained lawyers, who will help you to resolve matters without going to court. Collaborative law puts you rather than the court process in control of your divorce.

It is not all about fixing problems, however. It is also about preventing them happening at all. We prepare pre-nuptial agreements and cohabitation agreements which aim to get all parties’ positions carefully laid out at an early stage in the relationship, reducing the risk of disputes later on.

Family Fixed Fee Packages

Sometimes you just need somebody to point you in the right direction. That’s why we introduced our Family Fixed Fee appointments. You can have an initial advice appointment with one of our family lawyers for a fixed fee of £100 plus VAT. We promise that at the end of it you will see things more clearly.

Hegarty Support & Advice Package

Our Support & Advice package is ideal if you plan to represent yourself, but want access to advice from an experienced family lawyer when you need it.  It is a great way to control your costs as you only pay for lawyers' fees as and when you come in and see someone for advice. 

"2014 was by far the worst year of my life to date. From the first time I met Lesley back in November 2013, she put me at ease and guided me exceedingly well through a very traumatic period. Thanks!!!"
