Caroline could not have been more helpful. The advice she gave was not what I was expecting as regards the split of the matrimonial home, but she explained everything so I could properly understand the legal situation. She also gave me good advice as to what I need to do for the future.
Family Law Solicitors
During life’s difficult times, our Family Law team will be there to listen, guide and reassure you through the consequences of the breakdown of a family relationship. With branches throughout Cheshire and Manchester, we are the solicitors that care, right there on your doorstep.
In a world where it would appear that answers to all your questions can be found online, we believe that there is no substitute for advice tailored to your own particular situation, which is relatable, accurate and straightforward.
We aim to get to know you, to understand your needs and objectives. By building a relationship with you based on trust and understanding, we aim to ease the emotional, and practical, burdens that come with making life changing decisions.
Butcher & Barlow believe in access to justice for all and offer a free initial assessment for most family law issues, after which we will assess your case, explain how we can help and discuss funding options. Our team is also keen to achieve a positive outcome without the need for court proceedings if at all possible. We also offer legal aid contracts where appropriate to provide cost-effective advice, and affordable, fixed-price fees wherever possible.
We pride ourselves in remaining robust yet non-confrontational, which we find can reduce costs and cause less stress for our clients. We have an in-house qualified Mediator, and you can find out more about this alternative means to resolving disputes here.
Our experienced Family team is made up of members and accredited specialists of family law associations including Resolution and the Law Society’s Children Law and Advanced Family Law Panels. These accreditations recognise the specialist knowledge and expertise that our family law team has in all aspects of family law.
