"Family law Solicitors are no longer a necessity, given the affordability and competence of Litigant In Person Assistants (aka Para Legals, McKenzie Friends, Legal Executives) and the flexibility of Public Access Barristers."

You certainly do not 'need' a Solicitor at all, to start things off or to move matters forward. If, after meeting you, we considered, for example, that a letter to the other spouse was necessary, we could advise you how to word and structure a letter that you could write yourself. A letter from you, worded correctly, has as much procedural significance as a Solicitors letter, should you then decide to apply to the court for help if she/he was uncooperative.

WE CAN HELP YOU WITH:

Divorce and Finances
Deeds of Separation
Cohabitation Agreements
Cohabitation Disputes
Prenuptial Arrangements
Postnuptial Agreements
Children
Domestic Violence
Grandparents’ Rights
Change of Name Deeds
Lasting Powers of Attorney

 

We can help you in a family law matter if you do not qualify for public funding and prefer not to use a high street Solicitor. We are not Solicitors, but with access to over 100 legal consultants (aka McKenzie Friends and Legal Executives) available across England & Wales, we are ready to work hard for your success in and out of Court.

Divorce, Children Act solutions and financial settlements are not an exact science, as every case is different. However, you can rely on us for a high standard of service, transparency and no hidden costs, so, if you email us your enquiry and we will do our very best to help

HOW WE HELP YOU

i) With unfriendly separations and divorces. Nowhere near agreeing a financial settlement or children arrangements. You feel you’re on your own; it’s very stressful, and you need alot of support. There may even be a Solicitor involved, who’s making matters worse.

ii) With amicable separations and divorces. Both cooperating to come to an agreed financial settlement, and agreed children arrangements. Where both of you want to work this out together, without being antagonised and divided by Solicitors. We help you both, working as a team.

Our Professional McKenzie Friend services:

McKenzie FriendsA Professional McKenzie Friend (the term coined by Nicola Matheson-Durrant) is the term used to describe a fee-charging (non-Solicitor, non-Barrister) family law legal adviser and assistant, who can help you prepare a family court case, and support you during a family court hearing. They are the low cost alternative to a Solicitor and Barrister.

A Professional McKenzie Friend should be very knowledgeable and experienced in a broad range of family law matters, and family court practises and procedures; should be fully insured; should be completely transparent about their knowledge, qualifications and experience; should be registered with the Information Commissioners Office; and should have a long list of authentic testimonials.

Whilst the communications between your Professional McKenzie Friend and you is not protected by ‘legal privilege’, they must never discuss or disclose any information about you/your case to third parties or on social media. (Email us for PMF advice and help here).
