Affordable advice to help with family problems


We know that many people can’t afford to pay a solicitor, or need to do as much as possible themselves to save money. Our self-help guides help you to do just that. But there are times when you are sorting out really complicated and important issues, like the money after the divorce or issues about your children, when it is really useful to get a bit of expert help from a family solicitor. 

To help with this, we have teamed up with Resolution to provide a panel of family solicitors that can help you at just the most tricky or important points of the guides below for a low-cost, fixed fee. You will see up front exactly what they can advise you on and how much their help will cost you – so that you can be certain you can afford it. The service can help you whether you are trying to come to agreements yourselves, using mediation, or if you have to go to court and represent yourself.

For now, this help is only available for users of our the family guides below. For all our help with family issues see Help to deal with family problems.

We have created this service to take some of the worry and stress out of the process for you, and to enable you to get a better, fairer outcome. 

If you don’t want to or can't afford to use this service, you don’t have to. These guides will still be extraordinarily helpful.
