If you’re facing legal issues relating to your children, it’s essential to choose an experienced family law solicitor with a great reputation for handling sensitive and potentially complex cases. Slater and Gordon’s family lawyers in Birmingham have an exceptional reputation for resolving cases involving:

  • Child protection. If the courts are involved in a child safeguarding issue, you’ll need to seek advice from a family lawyer to help you reach a satisfactory resolution for all parties, as well as to uphold the child’s legal rights.
  • Adoption and fostering. Adopting a child requires you to jump through certain legal hoops, and it’s essential the process is followed correctly. With advice from a family law expert, the adoption process can be smoother and much less stressful.
  • Children’s rights. A family lawyer can help to protect the rights of children involved in a difficult or complicated family situation such as a divorce or the dissolution of a civil partnership.
  • Child arrangements. Determining who a child should live with following a separation, and the terms of access arrangements for the other parent, can be extremely complicated without proper legal advice. A trained solicitor can help you to negotiate an arrangement that suits everyone, but especially puts the child’s needs and welfare first. Our family law solicitors aim to resolve child arrangement issues with as little stress and animosity as possible, providing you with straightforward advice you can trust.
  • Parental responsibility. When a couple separate, it’s important to establish parental responsibility if you want to have a say in important decisions relating to your child’s upbringing and future - for example, which school they go to. The legal expertise of a family lawyer can be extremely helpful in establishing parental responsibility in the eyes of the law.

Our Birmingham family law solicitors can also offer advice and support with other issues relating to:

  • Domestic violence. In this most difficult of situations, sound legal advice is absolutely crucial. Our solicitors are sensitive, compassionate and experienced in domestic violence cases, offering advice and support to help you see the light at the end of the tunnel.
  • Property rights. Disputes over property are common following a separation, and they can quickly escalate to become very complicated and acrimonious. A family lawyer can make the process of dividing assets and property much easier, ensuring that you receive what you’re entitled to with the minimum of stress or expense.
