Family law

At at Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall we understand the stressful and distressing effects of family proceedings – especially where children are involved.

Our team of highly experienced family solicitors give practical legal advice in a sympathetic manner while providing you and your family with the support you need.

How can we help?

Our family law solicitors believe in taking a conciliatory approach. We are members of Resolution which requires us to look for fair and peaceful solutions, rather than immediately going to battle stations.

However, you can rely upon us to proactively progress your case and, if need be, represent you robustly and effectively in court.

  • Separation and divorce
  • Financial disputes
  • Co-habitation disputes

  • Residence and contact disputes
  • Domestic violence/Injunctions
  • Adoption
