Bindmans' Family Department provides top-quality legal advice at competitive prices. Our lawyers are experienced across the full range of family law issues - including divorce and separation, cohabitation and civil partnerships. We have a national reputation for handling heavyweight and complex cases involving children, including care proceedings and international abductions.
The quality of our family lawyers is second to none. We provide exceptional value for money by offering an intelligent, focused legal service. With Bindmans, you will get the best possible advice and representation - without paying for non-essential extras. Bindmans offers access to the highest calibre legal expertise without extravagant costs.
The breadth of our family work means we have a wealth of experience to draw on, which enriches our understanding of what are often complex and difficult situations. When the case needs it, we can call on additional expertise from colleagues in our other departments, such as immigration, public law, housing and criminal law.
We understand that many of our clients are facing emotional and financial stress. We are members of the family lawyers’ group Resolution, and follow its code of conduct for dealing with family cases in a non-confrontational way. Even difficult cases often can be dealt with through mediation - avoiding the cost and uncertainty of going to court. However, where mediation is not an option, we will work hard on your behalf to obtain a fair solution as quickly as possible.
Bindmans’ commitment to human rights and cutting-edge legal work stretches over three decades and we are at the forefront of advising same-sex couples on civil partnerships. We were the first law firm to set up a dedicated website: www.civilpartnershiplaw.com
