A Guide to Family Solicitors

Family solicitors are experts in various areas of family related legal matters, including divorce, custody, adoption and probate among others.  They have a particular knowledge of the law in these areas and many family solicitors focus on one particular area of expertise in order to keep their knowledge as up to date and in depth as possible.  Good family solicitors will have not only the legal training but also the experience to help you with all of your family related legal issues.  Not only this, but the best family solicitors will have the ability to handle the delicate issues of family law with discretion, kindness and senstivity to the emotions that are often involved.  

Family solicitors are most often sought out in cases of divorce.  This is the most common legal situation requiring legal help and also one of the most complex legal issues that most family solicitors can take on.  This is because there are often many different aspects to divorce proceedings, from the division of community property to the issues of custody involving any children.  Divorce proceedings are often highly charged with emotions and the people involved are often at odds with each other.  The best family solicitors will be able to handle the pressure of these situations and know how to help their clients navigate a difficult situation and end up with a conclusion that is satisfactory to all parties involved.  In most cases, two family solicitors are involved in a divorce, one representing each party.  

Family solicitors are also called upon to deal with issues involving children even when divorce is not an issue.  This can be the case when a child is born outside of the bounds of marriage and custody must be arranged.  They are also involved in helping with adoption related issues that can be very touchy and legally confusing.  Many family solictors focus solely on this type of issue, allowing them to become experts in the area.  

Family solicitors are also involved when there is a death involved and there is a will to be taken care of and probate issues to manage.  Many people choose a solicitor to execute their will in order to ensure that it is in the hands of an expert and all of the deceased’s property winds up where it is meant to be.  This is another highly emotional situation requiring delicate handling and sensitivity on the part of the solicitor.

If you are looking for family solicitors, the best place to start is with some referrals from friends.  Many solicitors depend on referrals and word of mouth for much of their business.  Those who have built a strong reputation in the area will be much in demand, so you may have to wait a while in order to make an appointment.  Still, it is well worth a little wait, and possibly a higher expense as well, in order to be certain that the person handling your personal and family legal issues is someone who is experienced and also know how to handle touchy subjects.
