How can we help?

We can advise you on what the law says and how it will affect you.  We can explain the process and what everything means.  We can help you complete forms and assist with writing letters.  We can also help with preparing you case for court.  We can see if you are entitled to any benefits or waivers which may reduce the cost of filing court forms.  Should you need to attend court we can apply to assist you as a Mackenzie Friend.  This means we can go to Court with you and help by taking notes, sorting papers/ legal bundles and generally assist you in presenting your case for divorce Southampton.

Unlike Solicitors and Barristers we have no automatic rights of audience before the court.  However, with the judge’s permission we can be in court with you and if necessary speak on your behalf.  This is always down to each individual judge.  Instances where this more likely to be granted is when we work with vulnerable people or someone who would not otherwise be able to present their case to the court.

Why use us for divorce southampton advice?

We charge less than a high street solicitor and if we attend court with you we can agree a fixed price in advance which will include time, travailing and expenses.
