Family Law & Child Matters

Our family department provides expert quality advice and assistance on all aspects of family law and child matters.

It is an unfortunate fact of life that not all relationships are successful. When a relationship breaks down it is not unusual for one or both parties to seek legal advice. Often in such cases there are many issues to resolve; it may be necessary to settle any financial and property matters and, in the cases where children are involved, to decide who the children will live with and assess contact arrangements. The circumstances of each matter differ and there are many factors which must be considered before a client can make an informed decision.

Rotherham & Co can help you with:

  • Divorce
  • Cohabitation
  • Children in care
  • Family Wills
  • Separation
  • Financial disputes
  • Protection from domestic violence

In April 2013, the government ceased to provide most Legal Aid funding for family matters, with the exceptions of domestic violence cases and Child Care matters with Social Services involvement. We are able to offer a fixed fee service for clients who do not fall into either of the above exceptions. An assessment of a client’s financial eligibility can be made in the initial meeting, along with the possibility of an affordable monthly payment plan.
