CASE EVALUATION (FAMILY LAW) – HOW IT WORKS
As all family cases differ we believe its important that you receive individual tailor made advice at the outset of your case. Our fixed fee evaluation service is designed to do just that and give you some expert tailor made advice about all the options open to you and an opportunity to discuss those options in a one to one telephone or Skype consultation.
In order to give you that advice you will be asked to tell us about your case and to upload any letters or documents from the other party. We have made it easy for you to scan in or photograph any documents and send them to us and have given you plenty of space to tell us about your case.
*IMPORTANT PLEASE READ*
Once you have registered on our website, made payment for your evaluation using our secure website and Paypal secure payment process, you will be redirected to a page to upload all your documents. All you need to do is put your Paypal payment reference number and fill in everything else and we will contact you in due course.
Once we receive your documents we will consider the case against you with 48 hours (excluding weekends and bank holidays) and provide you with individual written advice about the law, how you can defend the case and your prospects of success. We will also set out the consequences of winning or loosing your case. We may telephone or email you if we have any questions about what you have told us.
You are also entitled to a 15 minute one to one telephone or Skype conference to further discuss your case with one of our lawyers as part of your fixed fee when you can ask any questions about the information you have given us.
Please Note: We do not offer legal aid in family proceedings and neither do we accept instructions in public law cases (which used to be known as “care proceedings”) where civil legal aid is available. If you have any doubts about whether you may qualify for civil legal aid please call us on 0151 480 4061.
At Parry Welch Lacey LLP we understand that sorting out the finances at the end of a relationship can be very stressful. Following a separation or divorce, agreements will need to be made between a couple about property, child support, maintenance and the division of other assets. In an ideal world, you and your spouse or partner may be able to reach agreement amicably. If this division and sharing of financial assets can be agreed between you then this agreement can be formalised simply by submitting a consent order to the court and, once approved and sealed by a judge, will become a binding order .
Relationship Breakdown and Property
Various orders can be made by the courts regarding the family home which can include: sale and division of proceeds, transfer of property ownership and/or lump sum payments. Courts can give short-term rights to the home such as the right to stay in or to have access to the property or long-term arrangements.
Domestic violence covers a wide range of situations where one person, either male or female, in some way harms another person with whom they have a form of relationship. This not only includes physical violence, but also verbal abuse, mental abuse, pestering, bullying and also harassment. Domestic violence can occur in a range of intimate relationships but can also include situations such as relative abuse within extended families. All are difficult and distressing to deal with.
An injunction, such as a non molestation order or occupation order, is a civil court order which can be used to help keep you safe. It places legal restrictions on your abuser to try to prevent or limit any further violence. Injunctions can be issued for various reasons, the most common being for domestic abuse related incidents, such as assault, harassment or threatening behaviour. Our solicitors can assist you in obtaining injunctions through the courts and explaining the options available to you.
You can get further confidential information about injunctions and other legal measures from one of our experienced solicitors by calling us today. Meeting with solicitors and proceeding through the court system can be a daunting prospect for anyone, but at Parry Welch Lacey LLP we aim to make the whole experience as quick as possible whilst providing you with the expert legal support you deserve.
Children are especially vulnerable to the effects of divorce and separation. Both parents will naturally be concerned and have thought long and hard about the effect on their family. In all matters relating to children, the welfare and interest of the child is of paramount importance and comes before anything else. Your children will be going through the upset of seeing their family break up; not an easy thing to deal with. The trouble is, if parents let their own bitterness get in the way of compromise when it comes to raising their kids, it can make things even worse.
Parry Welch Lacey LLP encourages parents to try to come to a sensible arrangement for the best interest of the children. It is to the advantage of everyone involved, and part of our professional duty, to try to settle any disagreements out of court. Mediation can often help parents to keep calm and productive discussions ongoing. We can also help you in the negotiating process on access arrangements for your children and a range of other concerns, and where appropriate record any agreements made thus helping your family to keep the emotional impact to a minimum.
There are however situations where mutually acceptable agreements simply cannot be reached. Where it is not possible to come to your own arrangements, Parry Welch Lacey LLP can apply to the court for the following applications to be issued:
- Residence Order (Custody)
- Contact Order
- Parental Responsibility
- Specific Issue Arrangements as to School/ Holidays/Weekends etc.
- Prohibited Steps Order
If you don’t want to wait for your divorce to change your name back to your maiden name or you just want to change your name we provide a quick an efficient service that could see your name changed within hours.
