Legal Aid for family cases is available only in limited circumstances - restricted mainly to cases involving domestic abuse or where children are at risk. In many cases, such as divorce, change of name deeds and separation agreements, fixed fees are available. Fixed fees are also dependent on your financial circumstances. Most other matters will be dealt with on an hourly basis, dependent on your financial circumstances.

Following a relationship breakdown, understandably, your primary concern is the stability and wellbeing of your children. When parents are unable to reach an agreement about childcare, a Child Arrangements Order can be applied for - where the court decide where a child will live or who a child can spend time with and for how long. With our expert legal advice and guidance, you are better equipped to achieve a favourable outcome.

As your chosen solicitor, we will prepare your case and present it to the judge - outlining your response to the evidence. Our team can advise on all aspects of care law: from the initial involvement of Social Services to court applications for care orders, supervision orders, adoption or any other related matter. We understand you are upset, stressed and even angry, this is natural, we must, however, focus our energy on achieving the best possible outcome for your family.

read more › Sometimes, following a divorce/separation, parental or financial decisions are made by the couple involved rather of the courts. These negotiations, involving both parties' solicitors, are known as Collaborative Law and are intended to be non-confrontational. A key benefit of Collaborative Law is that both parties have more control over the outcome because they set the date, place and duration of each meeting. Thanks to this, compared to court proceedings, costs are often lower. As your solicitor, our role is to accompany you to all meetings and help you negotiate the resolution you want.

read more › During a divorce, it is highly recommended that both parties have a consent order. A consent order protects you against future financial claims from your former partner - claims against your home, pension, savings or income. Please understand, following a divorce, this protection is not automatically granted. Only after signing a consent order and filing it with the court are you protected against financial claims. An incredibly straightforward process, at Best Solicitors, we will guide you through the steps, help you understand your rights and complete all required documents on your behalf.

This will generally include the clearing of any debts, the payment of tax and the distribution of assets, this is known as the administration of the estate. However, the term 'probate' is also often used to describe the whole process of settling an estate. If the deceased has left a Will, an Executor or Executors will be appointed under the Will. In this instance, provided the estate is relatively simple and the Will is not contested, this can be a straightforward - albeit not necessarily a short process.
