Family and Relationships

It’s never going to be easy but a good lawyer can make it easier. Breakdown in family arrangements and relationships are rarely ever thought about at the beginning and can often be upsetting and stressful. Managing the legal issues arising from such changes requires calm, considered attention to what you need and clear, practical advice.

Our clients tell us that the financial implications of relationship breakdown and family proceedings are a genuine concern; this is why we deal with all matters in the most cost-effective way. Making sure our clients benefit throughout from clear information on the likely costs involved is one way we can reduce the potential stress which comes from family-related matters.

If your case is referred to Mediation, we can offer practical advice on how this will affect you, and the best way to proceed.  Nicholsons’ particular specialism however is in acting where Mediation alone cannot resolve the situation and a more assertive line is required. In such instances our clients have benefitted time and again from our calm, considered and decisive approach to negotiation and Court representation.

To help us assess your situation and outline your options and the potential costs, we offer a 30 minute, free, no-obligation initial discussion with you either on the telephone or in person at our offices. To arrange an appointment please contact Sarah Roberts on 01502 532 320 or at
