Family law is a varied and complex corner of law and it involves many disputes and proceedings.

Hylton-Potts is a family lawyer London residents can use for legal advice, mediation, and court representation. We are a leading name in this field and offer competitive fixed fees on all cases of family law.
One of the most common cases is that of divorce. A divorce really should be treated as the very last step and should only be considered when all avenues of reconciliation have been explored. However, despite even the best efforts of both parties, some marriages simply do not work out. In other cases, of course, there are more obvious factors that can lead to the breakdown of a family relationship.
When a marriage does breakdown, one partner will usually apply for divorce. Although this can be either party, it is most commonly the wife that takes the first step in filing a Form A to start the whole process. Following this, both parties are required to complete a Form E which details financial information and will require the collection of bank, mortgage, and credit card statements as well as other financial documents.
Form E is one area where divorce proceedings can prove a stumbling block. At Hylton-Potts we can work with you to ensure that all information has been provided by your spouse. We can inform you of your rights and liabilities, assist in mediation, and we can represent you in court ensuring that you get every penny that is rightfully yours through the divorce process.
The cost of legal representation varies according to the case and how involved you want your lawyer to be.
