Family Law

We can assist if you require to deal with a separation or divorce, or if you have a dispute concerning your legal, financial and property rights.

We also have a special section for people looking for Low Cost Divorces. This is a fast-track procedure which is only available in certain circumstances.

We also deal with cases concerning access to children. We act on behalf of those wishing to have access to children, and also parties who wish to prevent or restrict access. You can find out more in our Child Contact and Residence section

There are three ways you can fund our family law services:

  • We can offer you an innovative new approach to funding separations and divorces – we offer a variation on “no win, no fee” for separation and divorce claims involving financial disputes.
  • We can also provide a more traditional “pay as you go” package.
  • And if you are just looking for a one-off meeting to discuss your whole situation, you can meet with a solicitor for a fixed fee consultation to give you an overview and let you decide what to do next and how to do it.

To discuss matters further with no obligation, call us on 01224 590053 or e-mail info@djpsolicitors.com
