Family & marital legal advice

Welcome to the family law section

Woodford Stauffer cater for all your family law needs.  Please telephone us on 01252 375 376 or email us to arrange your free appointment.

If you're unfortunate enough to have to deal with issues arising out of the breakdown of a relationship then we know you want to speak to someone who is:

1. Clear - you want advice in plain English.

2. Approachable - you want to feel you can ask questions.

3. Transparent about costs - you want to know what you'll pay and when.

4. Committed - you want good progress in your case at all times.

We offer a free half hour appointment so you can meet with us to get some general advice about your case and decide if you think it's a relationship that can work for you.  The meeting doesn't have to be in person.  We understand people lead busy lives and it's not always practicable to take time off work to see a solicitor.  We can also offer appointments via Skype or telephone meetings.  We can even come and see you if you prefer. 

We can also offer fixed fees for many of your requirements.  We can discuss this at the free first appointment together with other funding options to help relieve your concerns about legal fees. 

We can assist you with the following:

  • Divorce.
  • Financial agreements within divorce proceedings or for un-married couples.
  • Separation agreements.
  • Pre and post nuptial agreements.
  • Cohabitation agreements.
  • Children disputes - contact, residence, removal from the jurisdiction and more.
  • Change of name deeds.
  • Mediation.

Our information sheets are available to download on the right hand side of this page.

We also have a list of frequently asked questions.

Our profiles are also on this website so you can see who we are and what we do.  We think it's nice to put a face to a name before you get here - we know you want to see a human and not a legal robot.  Please take a look.  You can e-mail or call us or use our online facility to book an appointment.

If you're not ready for an appointment yet but you just have a question then you can always ask us.  We will respond with a tailor made answer to your exact query.
