Family legal advice

Our qualified family solicitors provide legal advice to people who cannot afford a lawyer and have queries about a family matter which is likely to come to, or is already in court. The kind of cases we help with include divorce and the ending of civil relationships, cases involving the care, contact or access to children, financial matters as well as domestic abuse and other family matters.

We aren’t able to give advice if you already have a solicitor or can afford to see a solicitor. We are not qualified to give advice on any other matters but can direct you to organisations that can help you.

We give free and confidential legal advice and we are independent of the Court.

We give advice on what you steps you should take with your case, how to apply to the court, and how you can respond to what the court ask you to do.

We do not take on your case, or tell you if you have a case, but give advice about how you can proceed with your case. If you need representation, or specialist advice about if your case has merit we can refer you to Advocate.
