We receive outstanding reviews

The service provided…was excellent and I would highly recommend. The legal advice was very clear and realistic. The whole process was handled with empathy and compassion. I was made to feel that nothing was to much trouble. They went above and beyond my expectation.
An outstanding level of service and thank you very much for all your help and advice.
I am literally in shock that something that has proved so challenging to so many other solicitors over the past 15 months has been sorted by you, easily and quickly. I can’t thank you enough!
Alex Regan has been my solicitor through a difficult divorce over the past 18 months. Without her excellent legal knowledge and experience, highly professional and friendly manner coupled with her clear and constructive support, I would not be in the positive position I am now and able to focus on the future. I would have no hesitation in recommending Alex, as its quite difficult to put into words how much I want to thank her.

Family Law FAQ’s

Situations which require a family solicitor are often very emotional and stressful for all parties concerned. They are also occasions when difficult life changing decisions need to be made about your future and the future of any children you have. By obtaining legal advice at an early stage you will understand your rights and responsibilities, and how best to tackle these difficult decisions. It is important that you receive independent, accurate and trustworthy advice to enable you to make the decisions that are right for your situation and to ensure you do not agree to something that may not be right for you in the long run.

As a grandparent, you are entitled to make an application to the court concerning your grandchildren to resolve living arrangements, arrange to spend time with your grandchildren or for any other relevant issues. We can help you to make the best application possible. Any application is judged on its merits taking into account both parents views.

Mothers automatically have parental responsibility for their children. Married parents have joint parental responsibility. If the partners are not married, only the mother has parental responsibility. An unmarried father can acquire parental responsibility by being registered as the child’s birth certificate with the consent of the mother, by entering into a parental responsibility agreement or by applying to court. If you require any advice in this area, our solicitors at Oliver & Co can assist you.
