Gardner Croft family law solicitors in Canterbury has gained a reputation for providing a personal service that is sensitive to the upset and uncertainties associated with the breakdown of a marriage or relationship.

We provide clear and uncomplicated advice tailored to meet the individual circumstances of each of our clients on all aspects of family law and assist you in making often difficult decisions to reach a resolution that is most suitable to you.

Our friendly and sympathetic family law solicitors in Canterbury, Kent will understand your problems and concerns and will help you to try to resolve differences with your partner (where at all possible) and reach solutions that are fair to all members of the family, particularly if you have children. Our family solicitors in Canterbury can provide assistance with all areas of family law.

Our family law solicitors are members of Resolution

How We Work
We will always attempt to achieve a negotiated settlement but if court proceedings are necessary they will be conducted rigorously on your behalf. The team adhere to Resolution’s code of practice and the Family Law Protocol where possible, seeking a conciliatory approach to minimise disruption and animosity that litigation can cause and to bring about a conclusion that is fair and reasonable to the parties and considers the needs of the children.

Our Team
Our approach is to listen actively to the concerns of our clients and to find a solution which will minimise potential damage and help clients find a constructive way forwards.  As part of this, clients obtain:

Truly objective advice about the option available, to ensure that each client can make the correct choices and consider their future aspirations and those of any children;
Expert guidance with practitioners who have specialist accreditations and experience of complex and diverse family law matters;
Tailor-made solutions which recognise the very individual nature of every case and can embrace the assistance of other experts when needed.

We understand that when clients come to see us, they are often confused, angry and quite frightened.  Our aim is to develop an holistic strategy to assist wherever possible.  We believe that high quality family lawyers are entrusted to empower clients and build trust with their families rather than destroying it and discouraging on-going communication.  We believe that cost-effective solutions to family problems are often found when practitioners facilitate discussions rather than control them.
