Frequently asked questions.

How much do family solicitors in Nottingham cost?

We are extremely proud to offer transparent fixed fees for our family law solicitors.

How does family mediation differ from going to court?

Family mediation offers an alternative way to resolve issues and disputes that arise during a separation or divorce. Mediation meetings allow for couples to meet face-to-face with experienced mediators, in an attempt to reach an agreement together. A mediator acts as an impartial third party, helping the couple to resolve disagreements over matrimonial finances, child custody and child care arrangements.

What is a Cohabitation Agreement? When do I need one?

Regardless of how long a couple has lived together, you only acquire spouse rights if you get married or enter a civil partnership. Therefore, if you separate from your partner, you only have a right to claim assets that were owned together or that you financially contributed to. A Cohabitation Agreement will outline everything you have contributed to during your relationship, establishing what rights both parties have to all assets and future claims that can or cannot be made.

Can I appeal my child's school placement decision?

By sending a written, evidenced application, a parent can appeal a child’s school placement decision. If the admission criteria do not meet the school’s admission appeal code, or the policies have not been adhered to, then your appeal will be successful. Once an appeal is made in writing, you will then receive a hearing date. It is crucial you meet the timetable of your appeal’s process as an independent tribunal will be involved.
