What is Family Law

Our Family Law Department provides expert family law advice from specialists accredited with the Law Society and are members of Resolution, a national organisation of Family Lawyers committed to dealing with family issues such as divorce, separation and arrangements for children.

There may be numerous reasons legal advice is needed on relationship breakdown, whether it is for divorce proceedings, advice on making arrangements for children or about financial implications on separation.

Why Us

Dootsons Family Department understands this can be a very emotional time and knows that dealing with legal aspects of family problems requires a comprehensive knowledge of the law together with a sympathetic and conciliatory approach.

Of course, sometimes, there are circumstances when a tough stance is called for and because of our vast experience in dealing with this type of work, we are able to adopt the most effective approach to meet the needs of our clients.

We provide clear advice delivered in a down to earth way and provide detailed cost estimates for the work involved and discuss various options for payment.

Our Team

Our staff are recruited not only for their high level of technical expertise but also for their communication skills – we know how important it is to listen.

We advise on issues common to many families on relationship breakdown and provide legal assistance and representation for a variety of family disputes.
