Why Advocate Family Law?
The average cost of a divorce is £15,000 per spouse. The more complicated the situation, the higher the cost is likely to be.
So, if you're going to have to spend that amount of money, you need to be sure that you are instructing a solicitor that is putting your personal interests ahead of generating legal fees.
In our experience, it can be very difficult to make decisions about legal representation when you are going through the pain of relationship breakdown. Having a good solicitor can make all the difference.
That's where we come in.
We've been through the process and understand these difficulties including whether and when to engage a solicitor and how much each step should cost. We understand that at times of crisis emotion can take over and coherence can become a challenge. We also understand that there are times when it’s important to reflect and take stock of things before acting and our free helpline is designed to help you do this and to build a trusting relationship with someone who is genuinely sympathetic to your situation.
We only work with solicitors that we trust so you don’t have to take risks on which firm you choose. Where necessary, we will negotiate with your solicitor and manage the situation on your behalf to save you money.
We're on your side.
"Advocate Family Law helped me through what was probably one of the most difficult times of my life. I had reached a point where I didn't know where to turn next and was having to deal with a very difficult ex-partner.”
“Over many years Andrew has been providing a pastoral care and support service for people going through divorce in order to save them money and help navigate this difficult and painful emotional process.”
"Advocate Family Law helped me to understand the legal process that so I could ask my solicitor the right questions and they gave me the belief that I would get through it. Just having someone that I trusted to call in the morning before going into court was invaluable."
