Family Law Services

Personal services tailored to your case

I offer a range of personalised Family Law services to help you with an upcoming hearing where you’re representing yourself in court. Afterwards, you’ll feel prepared and confident, knowing you’ve increased the chances of the outcome going in your favour.

Assessment & Strategy

£ 60
00
  • We'll have a telephone discussion to look at your circumstances and discuss potential approaches you can take and the likely outcomes. Many people don't know what is achievable and what the court can do, so I'll explain the possibilities and help you get something worthwhile out of your situation.

Writing a position statement

£ 100
00
  • A Position Statement is probably the most useful document you can provide to the court - I can't emphasise enough how important this is to your case. A Position Statement sets out your circumstances leading up to the hearing. Of course your position will change as things develop and hearings progress, but having a comprehensive Position Statement in place will help avoid things getting lost in translation or emotion. Before I write it we'll discuss what outcome you want from your case and why. You'll send me your thoughts by email and I'll produce the Position Statement for you.

Writing a WITNESS statement

£ 180
00
  • A Witness (or Narrative) statement sets out your evidence - evidence is critical to your case and without it the judge doesn't have much to base their decision on. Many people don't understand what constitutes evidence or how it's used in court, so I'll explain this to you and make sure we use it properly in your Witness Statement. We'll discuss your situation in detail and what evidence you have, as well as what stage your application is at and what outcome you want from the court. You'll send me your thoughts by email and I'll produce the Witness Statement for you.

coaching for a hearing

£ 80
00
  • To be able to approach your hearing with confidence, you need to know what happens in court, what's likely to happen in your case, and how to prepare properly for the hearing. Rather than attend your hearing without this thorough preparation we'll discuss your situation and what will happen at the hearing, and I'll advise you on the right approach to take, what to say at the hearing, and more importantly what not to say!

APPLICATION FOR A CHILDREN CASE

£ 80
00
  • Often your first step is to make an application of some kind. It will take a few weeks to be processed, and when you can't see your children the last thing you need is for your application to be rejected due to missing information or having applied for the wrong type of order. I'll discuss your case in detail with you and what's achievable, and I'll complete the correct application form for your circumstances.

APPLICATION FOR A finaNcial CASE

£ 80
00
  • As with an application for a children case, we'll discuss your situation in detail, including what you want to achieve from the court case. I'll then complete the correct application form for your circumstances so you can feel assured that everything has been done correctly to maximise the chances of the outcome being the one you want.

APPLICATION FOR A non-molestation order

£ 150
00
  • If you're in the unfortunately position of being in an abusive relationship, you'll need to make an application to the court to obtain an order giving you safety (and often a place to stay). If the application is weak or incorrect in any way, you may lose the protection you need. I'll discuss your situation with you and what is achievable, and then complete your application form correctly.

APPLICATION FOR enforcement

£ 180
00
  • Having been to court and obtained an order, the last thing you need is for the other side to ignore it or not follow the direction made by the court. The only appropriate outcome in these situations is to make an application for enforcement of the court order. I'll discuss your situation with you and what you can achieve, and then complete the application for enforcement.

A HELPING HAND WITH CHILDREN CASES, INCLUDING COURT PREPARATION

£ 180
00
  • To approach your hearing with confidence, you need to be clear what happens in court, what's likely to happen in your case, and how to properly prepare for the hearing. Rather than attend your first and any subsequent hearings without this thorough preparation, I'll keep in touch with you, discuss options, assess events as they unfold, and advise you on how to deal with whatever happens. This service includes writing your Position Statement and being on hand to offer advice before, during and after each hearing.

A HELPING HAND WITH financial CASES, INCLUDING COURT PREPARATION

£ 300
00
  • To approach your hearing with confidence, you need to be clear what happens in court, what's likely to happen in your case, and how to properly prepare for the hearing. For your first and second hearing (FDA & FDR), I'll keep in touch with you, discuss options, assess events as they unfold, and advise you on how to deal with whatever happens. This service includes writing all the documents you need, including questionnaires and Position Statements. I'll also be on hand to give advice before, during and after your hearings.

A HELPING HAND WITH non-molestation CASES, INCLUDING
COURT PREPARATION

£ 250
00
  • Unfortunately, abuse allegations are very common in court - some are true, but many are unfounded. The court will assess an application to attempt to unearth the truth. Whether you are trying to protect yourself from harm, or defend yourself against false allegations, I'll keep in touch with you, discuss your options, assess events as they unfold and advise you on how to deal with them. This service includes writing all the documents you need, including Position Statements and Scott Schedules, and I'll be on hand to offer advice before, during and after your hearings.

A HELPING HAND WITH final hearings, INCLUDING
cross examination

£ 450
00
  • Final hearings are the most important, as that is where the decision on any application will be made. The decision will be based on evidence that has been provided, and a major part of that evidence is your cross examination. During cross examination you'll use questions to expose dishonesty and inconsistencies in the other party's version of events, and how allegations that have been made against you are impossible or have been described inaccurately. Your preparation needs to be thorough and the best it can be. This service includes keeping in touch with you, discussing your options, assessing events as they unfold and advising you on how to handle them. It includes writing your cross examination questions and closing submission, and being on hand to advise you before, during and after the hearing.

Divorce

£ 180
00
  • This service guarantees you a divorce. Whether you are applying for a divorce or defending one I'll assist with your application and the all the paperwork that's required. Many people worry their ex spouse will block the divorce or rack up thousand in costs. This service ensures the divorce can't be blocked and costs only the price stated here. There will be a court fee, and perhaps the cost of serving documents to your ex, but the service includes claiming back those costs for you.

child maintenance

£ 350
00
  • Whether you're paying or receiving child maintenance, I'll help you get assessment at the right level. Many people lie and distort their income or expenses, so this service will help you get, or pay, the correct amount due. It includes assisting you with preparation for a Final Tribunal Hearing.

PREnuptial agreement

£ 300
00
  • Some people understandably want to protect their assets before getting married, so that in the event of the relationship breaking down they don't lose them. This service includes providing a prenuptial agreement and discussing the necessary requirements, as well as signing the agreement for one party to make it official.

separation agreement

£ 250
00
  • Sometimes the court doesn't have to get involved with splitting finances or other things when a couple separates. You can come to an arrangement between yourselves with a Separation Agreement which sets out all the issues that a court would consider (and which would normally cost thousands in solicitor fees to obtain). I will provide a Separation Agreement and discuss the necessary requirements, and then sign the agreement for one party to make it official.

consent order: children

£ 200
00
  • If you and your ex can agree on child contact arrangements, you may not have to attend court to make things official. I can take your agreement and turn it into an order which the court will accept by post and then post back to you. I'll discuss the benefits of a Consent Order with you and the necessary details, then write it and prepare all the required documentation for it to be signed and sent to the court.

consent order: finances

£ 250
00
  • If you and your ex can agree on how you'll split money and other assets after a separation, the court may not need to be involved. I can take your agreement and turn it into an order, which the court will accept by post and then post back to you. I'll discuss the benefits of a Consent Order with you and the necessary details, then write it and prepare all the required documentation for it to be signed and sent to the court.
