Our team of family solicitors have extensive experience of dealing with a wide range of legal issues affecting families. No matter how complicated your circumstances may seem, our family solicitors can help you come to a solution that works for your family.

Family solicitors are there to assist people with all types of family law related issues. The role of family solicitors is rather varied but we can help with a wide variety of issues, including house transfers or potential relocations with children.

It is often prudent to seek some form of legal advice as any type of family law related issue can be difficult, stressful and emotional. With the Government cutting the budget for Legal Funding the cost of legal proceedings are a very natural concern for most people and it is important that couples try to keep legal costs in proportion with the level of assets to be divided.

If your divorce involves children or any kind of financial agreement, we would strongly advise you to contact a family solicitor. A family solicitor can advise on whether the agreement you have reached with your partner is a reasonable financial settlement for you, and help you to make sure that all court documents are correctly completed and filed on time.

It is important that you find a family solicitor that you find comfortable to work with and who is always contactable. At Barker Gotelee our family solicitors recognise the emotional distress which a relationship breakdown can cause.

Our family solicitors are here to advise and guide you through a difficult time; to work with you to find a solution to the problem and, where possible, – to only use the court system as a last resort.

Contact us, we are here to help.

“Thank you is more than we can say for all your kindness and guidance through this difficult time – we are so grateful.”
