Our family law team
The Woolley & Co team of lawyers work only in the area of divorce and family law. Every one of them has at least 11 years post qualification experience in family law. They are all used to dealing with complex family law issues and many are also able to advise on divorce with an international element or where there are issues of international jurisdiction.
Although our lawyers are selected for their legal ability they are also chosen for the client care skills and as you will see from our client testimonials the service offered is first class. They deliver their advice with care and compassion, explaining the inevitable legal jargon along the way.
What does family law cover?
Family law is a wide-ranging area of law. Anything related to divorce, separation and family matters is included. Family lawyers will tend to cover all areas, although some may specialise in order to offer expert advice in a particular field.
At Woolley & Co our lawyers offer family law advice in areas including:
Marriage, Civil Partnerships, Divorce and Separation
Our friendly and knowledgeable family lawyers take care of the legal aspects of pre-marital agreements as well as dealing with divorce and relationship breakdown, providing all the advice and support you need to bring an end to your marriage or civil partnership.
Couples who choose to live together but not marry are not covered by the same laws as married couples. When they separate however, they often need to resolve issues around the care of their children and the division of property and finances. This is a specialist area of law with which Woolley & Co can help.
Woolley & Co provide expert advice on the financial aspects of divorce and financial settlements. Our family law solicitors can help you reach an agreement with your ex amicably, support you through family mediation, or prepare and represent you through the Court process.
Children and parents
Our friendly, sympathetic team can help with contact arrangements, advice on your rights and responsibilities as a parent, and the rights of your child. In all cases our approach is to try and help you reach agreement as parents, but if this is not possible our lawyers can represent you through the Court process.
