Family breakdown is a painful and stressful time for all involved. Here at Sheppersons Solicitors we can assist you by helping to sort out the practicalities involved, whether it is issues involving children, a separation or divorce, or dealing with the property and finances.
Our specialist family solicitors will ensure that you are given all the advice you need in a jargon free manner. Their experience in dealing with this type of situation can be invaluable in helping you through the process and ensuring that a resolution to your issue is achieved in a timely manner.
Our approach is always to try and reach a negotiated settlement between the involved parties, however we are experienced in presenting cases at all levels of the court system where necessary.
In particular we will always hope to be able to follow the Code of Resolution, a group pf family lawyers who have agreed to deal with cases with as little conflict as possible. We take the view that a negotiated settlement usually makes for a happier separation.
We can also give you advice and representation should Social Services become involved with your children.
We offer a reduced fee initial consultation to all our clients and we will give you a clear estimate of the expected costs at the outset.
