Family Law Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a family law solicitor?

No matter how straightforward your case may seem initially, things can quickly change. If you’re unprepared legally for those changes it can put you on the back foot when trying to resolve your situation.

Instructing a Cartwright King Family Lawyer from the start means that we can outline your options at every stage of your case. If things do change quickly, having legal representation means that you’re fully prepared and can take the appropriate advice to find the best way forward.

What experience does Cartwright King have in family law?

What can I do to help win my case?

Helping us to win your case depends on your circumstances. If your issue relates to settling finances and assets after a divorce, gathering as much financial information as you can will save time and give us foundation evidence that we can use to present your case.

If your issue is in relation to children, providing details of any existing child arrangements or agreements you have with your former spouse or partner is a good place to start.

When you are choosing a family solicitor, you should consider whether they have all of the relevant qualifications to help you in all the areas of law that you need. You can choose a solicitor based on recommendation, or by looking at reviews online. You should also consider how much they charge and the way in which they work.

How much are solicitor fees for family law?
