Children & Family Law

Family law is an area which is likely to affect everyone, at some point in time in their lives. At Pearson Caulfield we are specialists in Family Law. What sets us apart from our competitors is our good value and the fact you can be sure a fully qualified, Specialist Solicitor or Barrister will deal with your case from start to finish.

We understand that when you need family law advice, it is invariably at a hugely distressing time – you need the re-assurance that the person representing you understands the legal process and is properly qualified to represent you.

We deal with all aspects of family breakdown – separation and divorce, breakdown of Civil Partnerships and arrangements relating to your children and finances following relationship breakdown

Of course it is not only married couples / civil partners who require advice when their relationship comes to an end and we offer advice and representation to unmarried cohabiting couples on the consequences of their relationship breakdown.

We understand every case is unique and a good solution is what works best for you and your family. In order to achieve the best solution, we take time to work with you to establish your short and long term priorities. We can advise you on a number of potential ways to resolve your case such as help and advice with mediation, Collaborative Law (which is an alternative to Court), negotiation and, if necessary, the Court process. We will then decide, with you, which is right for you and your case.

From time to time people need legal advice because Social Services become involved with their family. If this happens it is best for you to seek advice as soon as possible and from a solicitor who is specially qualified in this area of law. Our Family Law solicitors are specialists in dealing with legal proceedings relating to children.

Legal Aid is often available in these circumstances

We can represent you at meetings with Social Services and if your case goes to Court we will ensure you receive first class advice and representation

Please call us for further advice if social services are involved with your family. It is important you get the right advice from the outset of your case.


All cases are dealt with and or supervised by qualified solicitors with at least 20 years experience in their legal area.
