Free Family Law Clinic Begins

  • Posted on

DIVORCE is never easy for families no matter what time of year and it’s a sad fact that many couples decide to part after the festive season, citing the saying ‘a new start for the New Year’.

Many of our clients are recommended by their friends and family who know we are approachable, diligent and sympathetic to our clients needs at this difficult time.

Most people do not know what to do, where to start and they then come to us upset and confused, so from January we are opening our doors every Tuesday and hosting a Family Consultation Clinic.  The clinic is free, but operates on a strict half hour appointment only basis.

“The aim is to provide that first point of contact, to reassure and explain people’s rights and help them resolve their problems in the most sensitive and cost-effective way” explained Family Partner, Daniel Prince.

“The fact that this initial interview is free is going to take on even more significance for some potential clients who previously would have expected Legal Aid.”

“When the Government Legal Aid cuts take effect early in 2013 most people will be denied such funding, but the consultation clinic can be a starting point for them,” he added.

Pearson Hinchliffe act for clients from all walks of life, in all situations and provide advice on:

  • Divorce
  • Separation
  • Unmarried couples
  • Financial issues and cases involving business assets
  • Children issues, contact, residence disputes and maintenance
  • Injunctions
  • Grandparents’ rights
  • Pre-nuptial agreements
  • Parental Responsibility Agreements

Costs are estimated at the outset so you know where you stand and payment plans can help you spread the costs over the duration of your case.

The Family Law Consultation Clinic will take place each Tuesday (by appointment only).
