Family Law

At CW Booth & Co, our family law solicitors have extensive experience of dealing with a wide range of issues for clients in a sensitive and professional way.

We understand that the breakdown of a relationship can be a distressing and traumatic time. We will be happy to give you honest and straightforward advice as to your position in respect of finances, property and children.

Where a divorce is contemplated, our solicitors can advise and assist you in the drafting of, or response to, a divorce petition and will guide you throughout the proceedings. We can assist you in negotiating and implementing an appropriate financial settlement, making an application to the court where necessary for financial relief.

Where children issues arise, we offer advice and representation in respect of any situations where contact or residence is in dispute.

We regularly assist those clients whose children are the subject of social services intervention or care proceedings, for which free legal aid is available to parents.

If you have been a victim of domestic violence, we will be pleased to offer you advice as to the steps you should take to ensure your safety, including the possibility of applying to the court for a non-molestation (injunction) order.

For many family law clients, legal aid is available. We will be happy to discuss funding options with you at a free, initial interview. Our Mr Liam Brison is a member of the Law Society Family Law and Children Panels.
