Family Law: Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a Family Solicitor and a Solicitor?
Simply, a Family Solicitor is a qualified solicitor who has specialised in family matters and the law pertaining to them.
Solicitors usually specialise in a specific area of law and provide tailored services to their clients for specific matters. A family solicitor can provide legal advice throughout any family law case (usually heard at a family court) – including divorce and separation, child care arrangements, specialist agreements., proceedings involving public bodies such as Local Authorities (Social Services). Many of our solicitors are members of the Law Society specialist Children Panel allowing them to represent children in disputes between parents on marriage or relationship breakdown or in proceedings brought by Social Services against parents seeking to protect children from harm.
What do Family Law Solicitors do?
A Family Law Solicitor can assist with navigating the law and the court process around family matters. These include divorce and separation settlements, childcare arrangements, cohabitation agreements, prenuptial agreements (prenups) and other legal issues to do with partners, spouse, children and relatives.
A family solicitor can assist you in helping determine your legal rights in any family matter, and advising you on the best solution or direction for your particular situation.
Are there Family Law Solicitors near me?
Reeds Solicitors have over 20 offices throughout England and Wales providing family services. So it is likely that we can provide a family solicitor near you.
You can either take a look at where our offices are located by clicking here, or feel free to contact us to see if we can provide a family service for your location and requirements. We are used to representing people in geographical areas where we do not have an office which is increasingly possible through the court process often be via unattended remote hearings through remote internet platforms. In fact we are frequently contacted to do so by client’s recommended to us by professional advisors and satisfied former clients and we are happy to assist whenever it is in our client’s best interests.
How much does a family solicitor cost?
A family solicitor’s costs are entirely dependent upon the matter at hand, how complex the matter is, and whether the individual requires additional services or avenues explored.
Our family department has a contract with the Legal Aid Agency meaning that we can offer our clients the benefit of public funding for certain cases, including representation in court proceedings.
There may be times where legal aid is unavailable, or not the desired approach (such as requiring a more bespoke and tailored approach). At Reeds we are upfront with all our costs. We are happy to provide a free or modest fixed fee consultation with a solicitor to work out what your requirements are and how much this is likely to cost.
Is it better to have a solicitor represent me in family court?
Whilst not always compulsory, if you are involved in family court proceedings having legal advice and assistance from a family solicitor is usually highly recommended as a way of avoiding unwanted outcomes and wasted costs.
A family solicitor can ensure that you are given the best and robust advice and to ensure that you have the best representation so that you are better positioned to obtain the best possible outcome for the matter being heard.
For some situations, a legal representative is required in proving that you have obtained legal advice and that you understand fully your legal rights in the matter. In a number of situations the law requires that before you embark on a certain course of action, for example seeking to become a Special Guardian to a child or children, you receive independent legal advice from Social Services recommending and supporting you in doing so, or when seeking to agree a financial settlement or a prenuptial agreement to ensure that if you wave your rights in court or under the proposed agreement, you cannot later claim that you did not understand the ramifications at a later date.
How do I choose a Family Solicitor?
Frequently clients come to us after recommendations by family and friends as well as professionals who have had a positive experience with or of us. Often a good family solicitor will have a good reputation. Asking friends and family who have been through similar experiences can help you find a law firm that have expertise in your area and are best suited to meeting your needs.
For many individuals, a modern law firm and approach is preferred – especially if they provide services such as remote or online consultations. This can make it easier to fit handling your legal issues into the demands of our modern day lives. However, for some it may be important that your solicitor is located nearby for in-person appointments. Speaking to your solicitor about how you wish to work together will help narrow down the right solicitor for you.
Creating a list of questions for your solicitor to answer when you have your initial consultation may help to ensure that you find the right solicitor for you.
