Our Family Law solicitors understand that issues relating to Family Law are highly personal and sensitive.

This is why we aim to deal with all matters in an understanding and compassionate manner.

Our Family Law team can meet you at any of our offices, or at another office if more convenient, providing a personal accessible service at the time you need it most. Whether you need a divorce lawyer, advice on separation or child care proceedings, advice on post-nuptial or pre-nuptial agreements, a Wills solicitor, or help with changing your name by deed poll, please get in touch

We are members of The Law Society Family Panel and the Solicitors Association of Higher Court Advocates, and two of our solicitors have Children Law Accreditation.

We always aim to settle matters by negotiation rather than confrontation, in accordance with the best practice guidelines of ‘Resolution’ (the solicitors’ Family Law Association).

However, this is not always possible, and should this not be the case, you can be sure that you will be represented by one of the region’s leading law firms’ and whenever possible you will be represented by the same solicitor from start to finish, including representation in court.

Our Approach

No matter what the need our approach remains the same. We aim to be conciliatory but firm, practical and non-confrontational, and will approach your case with a reasoned and realistic attitude and strive to achieve the best possible outcome for you.

We will protect your interests and keep you informed at all times of our progress, together with the likely cost to you of our work.

Our approach is pragmatic and we take care to ensure that you understand any terminology or processes that might relate to your particular case. We are committed to advising you in plain English both in person and in writing.

“Woodfines has acted for me before and I had every confidence in them, so I instructed them to act for me again in my recent divorce. At a time of emotional stress and uncertainty I found them very reassuring. They helped me to see the issues clearly and achieved the best possible outcome for me whilst relieving me of much stress at this difficult time. I am very grateful.”

“I was very satisfied with the service I received during a difficult divorce. Practical yet empathetic advice ensured I was kept up to date and in control all of the time.”
