Family Law

In today’s modern world there is no such thing as an ‘average’ family or ‘normal’ relationship.

You may be married, living together, or separated. Children, step-children or adopted children are perhaps living with you or living elsewhere. Grandparents or other family members could also be involved. Whatever your situation, relationships can sometimes break down and that’s when turning to a legal expert can really help you to resolve difficulties quickly.

Whenever there are issues within relationships, it can be a stressful and emotional time but we are here to help make things easier. We will work hard to get to know you and understand your own unique situation so that we can help you resolve whatever issues you are facing, allowing you to start planning for a happier future.

Our family law specialists have in-depth knowledge of all aspects of family law and provide sympathetic legal advice to ensure that the practical implications of any relationship break-up are dealt with properly. We can advise on financial and property matters but we never lose sight of the fact that although practical issues need to be resolved, feelings and emotions are just as important.

At Dunn & Baker Solicitors we use plain English – not legal jargon. We will explain everything in a way that is clear and easy to understand. We also offer a FREE initial consultation and will explain the costs and timescales involved up front so you always know what to expect.

If children are involved, we know that your priority will be to ensure their welfare is paramount and we will provide complete support to help you do this. If situations arise where children may be at risk, we will work quickly to protect them. Our family law specialists are experts in dealing with a wide range of disputes involving children. These include disagreements about with whom the children should live with and arrangements for other family members to see them, disputes over paternity, or disagreements about who should be responsible for making important decisions in the children’s lives.

One way of resolving relationship difficulties is through mediation. This is a recognised process where the people involved in a dispute can come together with a trained expert who will help you reach an agreement. Dunn & Baker Solicitors provide an expert mediation service that can try to help avoid more lengthy or complex legal cases.
