Family law solicitors

When it comes to families, there’s no such thing as “normal.” You could be married, separated, cohabitating. You could have children, stepchildren, adopted children or none at all. Family life is rarely straightforward, and requires patience and dedication.

However, if one thing is for certain, it’s that there is no formula that fixes all family disputes. That’s why Talbots Family Solicitors will always provide tailored advice and be here for you when it matters the most.

When families argue, things can get heated and emotions often run high. Luckily, our family law solicitors are here to take the weight off. With vast experience in mediation and dispute resolution, we know how to work together to make it better.

Family dynamics are unique. On one hand, it’s what makes the bond stronger. On the other, it’s what causes tensions to rise. Whatever it may be for your family, we want to get to know how you work and understand your individual situation from the get go. That way, we can work on finding a solution that’s right for you.

Why should I trust Talbots family solicitors?

From the emotional side of the conflict to the practical implications, our family solicitors are ready to advise you on all matters. No conflict is too complex for us. We take pride in resolving our client’s issues, no matter how challenging they are. Plus, as well as helping you resolve the dispute; we can also share advice on property issues and financial affairs.

The majority of our family team are members of Resolution, an organisation with some 6,500 members, all family lawyers and other professionals committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes.  Resolution members follow a code of practice that promotes a non-confrontational approach to family problems.  Members encourage solutions that consider the needs of the whole family and in particular the best interest of the children.  Two of our family team, James Wright and Katie Wager, are also accredited Resolution specialists. 

At Talbots Law, we speak plain English. We may be lawyers, but we’re people first. Drowning clients in legal jargon never solved anything. As problem solvers, it’s our job to communicate and cooperate with you. We’ll always explain everything as clearly as possible. But, if you have any questions, don’t hold back. After all, that’s what we’re here for.

Childcare solicitors

We know that when children are involved, they take priority. It’s our job to ensure that your children are protected at all times, no matter what the circumstances. With a proven track record for resolving disputes centered on children, you can see us as a safe pair of hands. It could be a disagreement about custody, or an argument over the paternity of the child: whatever the issue, we’ll have their best interests at heart at all times.

In cases where you are worried about the safety of your child and believe they are at risk of harm, we won’t be afraid to take immediate action. Our family solicitors know that nothing is of greater importance than your child’s welfare, so will stop at nothing to keep them safe.

Mediation solicitors

What we will never do is judge you, or your family. We aren’t here to decide your future. We’re here to help you find the path to peace. While conflict is inevitable, combat is optional. Family life can be a struggle, but it shouldn’t be a battle. Our family solicitors are firm believers in mediation: after all, calm negotiation is often more powerful than courtroom confrontation. With one of our trained relationship experts present, your family can discuss the situation openly to find remedy rather than fault. If an agreement is reached in mediation, you save yourself time, costs and emotional distress. Sometimes, a little patience goes a long way.

Mediation will only be successful if all parties are willing to listen and empathise. However, we know that this isn’t always possible. When things get complicated and the dispute escalates, we’ll stand by you. In this case, our family solicitors will fight tooth and nail to secure your desired outcome.
