A sensitive and caring approach

At K J Smith Solicitors, our expert child law specialists have experience in handling all matters relating to children in the event of a breakdown in a relationship, whether you are married or not.

We pride ourselves on handling all cases with the utmost care and sensitivity.

When couples separate, if they have children, there are often significant issues that need to be addressed. For example, it may be where the child or children are going to live or how much time they will spend with each parent. There may even be issues relating to the children's welfare.

Resolving issues during and after divorce

I don’t think it is possible to tell you how grateful I am. You were a calming influence throughout.

For married couples, matters relating to their children are usually decided in conjunction with the divorce process. However, this is not always the case as issues can arise months or even years after a divorce has been finalised.

It is important to understand that issues relating to children that arise after a divorce, perhaps due to a change of circumstances, can still be handled and resolved. Contact us and we can explain more about how we can help you.

Support for unmarried couples

Unmarried couples with children have access to the same legal remedies in relation to children as married couples. In all cases, the objective is to reach an agreement regarding the care of a child or children, or to resolve a specific issue. This can often be done amicably, without the need to go to court. It is our aim to help this to happen. However, sometimes court is required when parents are unable to find a suitable resolution between themselves. Whatever the circumstances, we will keep you informed, offer clear advice and guide you through each step of the process.

Video Conferencing - Meet Our Lawyers

Virtual Logos (large)

Finding the right lawyer for you can be a difficult job, especially when you cannot meet them in person to talk through your concerns.

At K J Smith Solicitors, we believe that the current social distancing measures should not impact on your ability to access fast, free and personalised legal advice in your time of need. Whilst initial telephone consultations can be very useful, they can lack the personal touch especially when you are talking about sensitive matters concerning your children or family finances. Therefore why not arrange a free video consultation with us via Zoom, WhatsApp, MeetMe or Facetime?

Not only will you have the benefit of meeting your lawyer face to face from the comfort of your home or office but both you and your lawyer will be able to “screen share” documents facilitating better advice in relation to key issues.

Our flexible video conferencing service is available Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 6pm, until 9pm on Thursdays and between 10am and 3pm on Saturdays. We look forward to seeing you (virtually) very soon.
