Family Law Solicitors in Manchester

Due to the level of emotion involved, family troubles can often be the most challenging to resolve. As a result, family disputes can easily evolve into costly court battles, heightening the stress and upset for everyone. During this time, specialist advice and legal guidance will prove extremely beneficial in achieving a fair and positive outcome as quickly and efficiently as possible. Here at Fieldings Porter, our family law solicitors in Manchester are committed to helping our clients through difficult times to a satisfying conclusion.

Why choose Fieldings Porter’s family law solicitors in Manchester?

When a family law issue arises, it’s often a good idea to instruct a solicitor with a detailed understanding of other areas of law. Divorce, for example, may require financial advice where one spouse owns shares in a business. You may also need assistance in updating your Will and determining potential tax implications. Perhaps you own property, and a family dispute will lead to its sale. Whatever your circumstances, you can rely on the extensive knowledge of our family law solicitors in Manchester to keep you right. By calling on the wealth of expertise our colleagues have to offer, we can ensure you have all the information you need before making an important decision.

Our dedicated team includes members of the Law Society Family Law Accreditation Scheme, the Law Society Family Law Advanced Accreditation Scheme (Children Law Private & Violence in the Home), the Law Society Children Law Accreditation Scheme and Resolution. Therefore, you can rest assured that your case will be in the safe hands of a professional you can trust to prioritise and protect your interests through the most complex situations.

We appreciate that family law issues can cause a great deal of stress, so where possible, we will keep matters as simple and straightforward as possible.

  • Divorce and Dissolution of a Civil Partnership (both for the Petitioner and the Respondent)
