Family law

The FBU legal helpline gets more calls requesting advice on family law matters than almost any other area of the law.

Personal relationship difficulties can lead to complex legal problems. Separation and divorce can be among the most stressful things to happen in a person’s life, especially where children and property are involved.

While expert legal advice cannot ease the pain of a relationship break-down, it will ensure that the split is as fair to all sides as is possible.

Our telephone helpline gives 30 minutes confidential and sensitive advice on a whole range of issues to do with family law, e.g. custody rights, the Child Support Agency, property rights, pension rights, separation and divorce.

Family law advice is free in the first instance. Where ongoing assistance is required Thompsons may be able to refer you to specialist lawyers in the field able to arrange legal representation, prepare pension calculations, negotiate settlement arrangements and provide the full range of family law services.
