What is a family law solicitor?

A family law solicitor specialises in the practice area of cases involving family law and provides a range of family law services. Family law matters typically involve cases relating to family finances, separation, divorce and marriage, domestic violence, as well as issues relating to children, such as child arrangements following a divorce or separation.

A family law solicitor can provide a advice, assistance and dispute resolution to instructing clients throughout a family law dispute in order to obtain the best possible outcome on their case.

Our panel of highly recommended family law solicitors, Plymouth try to avoid family court proceedings and instead prefer to use arbitration and mediation as family law cases can be particularly sensitive.

How much does a family law solicitor cost?

The fees charged by a family law solicitor for their legal services can vary depending on the complexity of the individual case and the amount of work that the solicitor is ultimately instructed to complete.

In most cases, you will be expected to pay a court fee, the amount of which will depend on the type of case you are pursuing. You will also be required to pay the fees for your solicitor. Most of the solicitors on our panel will charge a fixed fee for their services. This will be discussed with you before you agree to proceed with your case.

What can our family lawyers in Plymouth help with?

  • Divorce – Relationship breakdowns bring up a lot of issues to consider, from financial settlements, disputes over prenuptial agreements, separation agreements and to the sharing of childcare. Ending a marriage or civil partnership is rarely easy and can be a particularly difficult process for those involved, including the couple and the wider family. We have the experience and expertise required to assist you throughout the divorce process, from applying for a divorce right through to finalising the divorce and dealing with any financial issues or pre nuptial agreements.
  • Ancillary relief – Ancillary relief refers to a process which is related to divorce proceedings where the divorced couple deal with the division of assets and resolve any financial disputes. Ancillary relief proceedings are not dealt with during divorce proceedings as they are a separate matter; however, they may run at the same time as the divorce proceedings. Whether you have a high net worth and want to protect your assets, or if you simply wish to sort the division of your family home and property, get in touch with our lawyers in Plymouth to discuss your situation.
