  • child custody and protection
  • financial arrangements
  • domestic violence

  • cohabitation
  • collaboratice law


Fixed fees are available for every type of case.


Please take note that, due to Government cutbacks, we are no longer able to offer representation on a Legal Aid basis.

Freedom to Marry Declaration/Affidavit


Congratulations! if you are reading this because you are getting married.


If you are marrying abroad and you have been advised that you need to have a legal document, often known as a ‘freedom to marry' statutory declaration or affidavit, we can complete that for you.


If you have booked your wedding with a tour operator, they will confirm which documents/declarations the Country that you are getting married in will require, before they can conduct the ceremony.


Once you have confirmed these to us, we can complete the necessary documents for you for a fixed fee of £100 (including VAT) each, or two for £175 (including VAT).
