Family Law

Going through a separation, there is often one person or spouse that has come to accept that the relationship is over whilst the other person is still coming to terms with the separation. 

Contacting a Family Lawyer for the first time can be a difficult step to take as it is something most of us never really want to do. You may have never been involved with lawyers or the legal system and you may feel that it is an intimidating process.
