Family & Divorce Covid-19 arrangements

We are all facing challenging times at the moment as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak. However, life does not just grind to a halt.

During this period of uncertainty, we want to ensure that legal assistance is still available to new and existing clients and we have taken steps to ensure that our services are still accessible. In accordance with government guidelines, we are limiting face to face contact with clients to ensure that we are not exposing anyone to unnecessary risk but if do you feel that you need to come into the office to speak to us, please ask and we will endeavour to accommodate you.  We now have strict safety procedures in place to ensure that we minimise the risk to you and our staff.

We will continue to offer our remote consultation scheme for anyone with a new Family law enquiry (however, please do ask if you require a face to face consultation). The consultation includes an initial telephone or Zoom discussion to give you the opportunity to discuss the nature of your enquiry with one of our solicitors, free of charge and to discuss likely future costs. If appropriate, we will suggest a more in depth fixed-fee telephone/Zoom consultation.   This consultation will last for around one hour, depending upon your requirements.  Following this, you will be sent a full letter of advice which will also recap upon the matters discussed.

If you choose to instruct the firm, for most purposes we will be able to proceed by way of email correspondence and telephone/Zoom call, limiting the need for you to attend our office.

For all existing clients, we are available for telephone and Zoom appointments and will continue to correspond by way of email and post. As above, please ask if you require a face to face appointment.

If you require advice, please contact us on 01227 813400.
