There are a wide range of reasons why you may wish seek the advice of family solicitors. Most commonly, it’s because a relationship has permanently broken down. There are, however, those instances where you are encountering temporary difficulties within your relationship but are not yet ready to formally end your relationship.

You may want to know where you stand and what may happen to your matrimonial assets including property, savings and pensions should you decide to formally separate in the future. You may own a business in which your partner may or may not hold a share and are therefore concerned about the future of this business in the event that your relationship does come to an end. You may be living in a property which you inherited or, for example, be working and living on a farm which provides your home and livelihood – what would happen if you were to divorce, would this be protected? Our expert solicitors can help advise you in relation to finances following divorce or separation.

The family itself has evolved to mean so much more than the traditional married couple with children. You may be married, living together, or separated. You may be in a Civil Partnership. Children, step-children or adopted children may be living with you or are living elsewhere. Whatever your situation, relationships can sometimes break down and that's when turning to a family solicitor can really help you resolve difficulties.

If children are involved in the breakdown of your relationship or if you have lost contact with your children, we know that your priority will be to ensure their welfare and we'll provide essential support to help you do this. Our family law solicitors are experts in dealing with a wide range of disputes involving children.

At Burn & Co Solicitors we explain everything in plain English, answering any questions you may have and making the process easy to understand. We also offer free, initial over-the-phone advice and will explain the estimated costs and timescales involved as soon as we can so you always know what to expect.

We offer a fixed fee initial meeting of up to one hour with our Family Lawyers in which we can advise you as to all areas of the law which apply to your case and can offer suggestions on how you may wish to proceed. These initial meetings start from £99 and are available Monday to Friday. This meeting is designed to give you peace of mind by obtaining expert legal advice at an affordable price, therefore helping you decide on the best way forward for you.

Our Family Law Advice Clinic takes place on a Friday morning between 9.00am and 12.00 at our Easingwold office. This meeting lasts up to 30 minutes with our Family Lawyers for which there is no charge .

As members of Resolution, we believe in trying to resolve matters in the least confrontational way possible. If you and your partner are able to talk to each other but feel that you need someone supporting you in the background then we can help. Our solicitors are dedicated to reaching the best outcome for you and keeping the family tensions to a minimum wherever possible.

At Burn & Co Solicitors we also offer Collaborative Family Law which aims to help you resolve your issues by agreement without resorting to the Family Courts but through round table discussions instead. Visit our Collaborative Family Law page for more information about this process.

We know that it is not always possible to reach an agreement and some matters will have to proceed through the Family Courts. If this is the case, then we can support you every step of the way.

If you're looking for confidential and friendly family law advice, contact us and speak to an experienced family law solicitor today.
