Family legal advice

Our service within the Central London Family Courts is exceptionally busy and we have a backlog of requests for appointments.

All our appointments are fully booked until the 31st October to allow us to clear our backlog.

We are sorry we are not currently able to help you. This is a temporary measure and we will review how this is working and open appointments as soon as we can.

Please see the following websites where you can find details of organisations that can give advice.


www.citizensadvice.org.uk where you can search for your local Citizens Advice

LawWorks connects people in need of legal advice and assistance with lawyers who give free advice. It supports 170 legal advice clinics across England and Wales. See Find a clinic.


There is also a website www.advicenow where you can find useful information and videos to help if you are going to court on your own: see Going to the family court.

We can still assist you in completing a divorce petition or non-molestation order remotely via our online system CourtNav:

For divorce - please ask your Local Citizens Advice to set you up with a CourtNav account

For women wanting to apply for an non-molestation order- contact our FLOWS team on 0203 745 7707 or flows@rcjadvice.org.uk and we can set you up with an account.
