Family Law Solicitors

Family Law

Choosing the right solicitor to represent you in relation to a Family Law dispute is probably more important than in any other area of the law in that the approach of the lawyer can have a profound outcome on the case both in terms of the proceedings themselves and the emotional impact on you and your family.

At CGW Law we pride ourselves on our professional and personal approach. Clive Wood has over 30 years’ experience and has represented clients in so called “big-money” cases as well as the more usual (and often more difficult) average money cases and has helped clients to resolve disputes in relation to their children and property. Clive brings a sensible and practical attitude to the legal process designed to try to reach compromise wherever possible. It is vital that the legal representatives do not antagonise an already emotionally charged atmosphere. On the other hand a client must be helped to avoid reaching a settlement which is not in their best interests or those of a child or children.

Family Law covers a wide area of issues such as divorce, civil partnership dissolution, judicial separation, financial remedy, separation, cohabitation disputes, Trusts of Land, residence and contact disputes in relation to children, pre-nuptial or pre-marital agreements and so on. Clive Wood has experience in all these areas and can help you, talk you through your options and give you advice on what to expect from and represent you in the legal or court process.

How is CGW Law different from other Family Law solicitors? Well, we do not have a fixed office so our client meetings take place in our clients’ homes or places of work or other locations convenient to the client. Virtual meetings conducted through Skype or over the telephone can be arranged at a time to suit you. By keeping office overheads down and working efficiently and in a properly focussed manner legal fees can be more controlled and the scandal of disproportionate or unreasonable costs being charged to vulnerable clients can be avoided.
