    Why Optimal Solicitors?

    We’ll save you money

    Unlike many family law solicitors, we do what it takes to keep your costs to an absolute minimum. We make sure you’re provided with the quality legal support you’re entitled to, at the most cost-effective price.

    We make family legal advice accessible

    Family issues can affect anyone, and we believe that everyone should be able to access specialist family law advice when they need it. That’s why we make it our mission to simplify complex legal jargon and remove barriers to professional help.

    We adapt to your requirements

    Each client has their own individual challenges to face, which is why we champion flexibility. We make it so the likes of opening hours, pricing, or confidentiality don’t hold you back from getting the legal advice you need.

    What do family law solicitors do?

    They will act on your behalf for any legal matters related to family. This could be for divorce proceedings, child arrangements, civil partnerships, domestic violence cases and nuptial and cohabitation agreements. The solicitor can take care of all relevant documentation and discussions, as well as provide expert advice so you know where you stand in a legal sense.

    What can I do to make sure I win my case?

    While there are no guarantees, compiling the right information to back up your case goes a long way to achieving the result you’re hoping for. We always recommend keeping a log of events that have taken place when it comes to family matters, especially for situations involving children.

    Do I actually need a family law solicitor?

    Family law solicitors will make sure you are fully informed on your legal rights and options, so you can get the best outcome while doing everything by the book. They will also act on your behalf where required, and draw up any associated legal agreements. While you can choose to represent yourself, without expert legal knowledge it can be much more difficult to achieve what you want.

    What does it cost?

    We are committed to making specialist family law accessible and affordable. For this reason we offer an initial consultation to anyone seeking our help, and offer fixed fees on all our family law services. We also provide our help on an hourly basis, should you require a more flexible approach. You can find our full pricing over on our dedicated pricing page.

    Move forward with Optimal Solicitors

    Discuss your situation in confidence, with no upfront cost. Your initial consultation is designed to help you better understand where you stand – and outline how we will support you should you decide to instruct our family law solicitors.
