When there are problems within the family unit or if the family unit becomes fractured or broken it is obviously an extremely difficult time emotionally. You don't know if you are coming or going and life can get you down in the extreme. This is a time during which you need lots of care and support from friends and family. Perhaps your spouse has become estranged and you feel very alone. It is at a time like this that you need to straighten yourself up, dust yourself down and seek legal help and advice.
Family law solicitors are by definition very understanding, professional and approachable. They have involvement in all areas of family law and no two working days are ever the same. A family lawyer is involved with a very broad spectrum of people and as such has seen virtually everything there is to see in the field.
A great deal of the job may involve actually liaising with young people and children, say if there is a custody battle going on. Under these circumstances there is obviously a great deal of stress being put on all who are directly involved in the case and the lawyer will understand and will endeavour to make things as easy as possible on the children where they can.
In interviews with those who practice family law, the majority of solicitors would say that they deal with three major areas within the course of their work. These are divorce, finance and children. From day to day a lawyer could be working on so many different projects such as a marriage break up which involves messy finances and the next day a custody dispute. Often estranged parents will visit a family lawyer in order to ascertain whether they have any legal rights to see their children. Grandparent also often visit family lawyers and it is estimated that there are around a million grandmothers and grandfathers in the UK who have been refused access to their grandchildren by one or both parents.
Family lawyers work with a diverse cross section of clients. It seems that nowadays no matter how much money one has or what profession they are in, so many of us at some point in our lives will need to use the services of a family lawyer.

There are laws which govern all aspects of family life and a family lawyer will guide you on the right path forwards for you and yours.
