As we once again face a period of national lockdown we would like to reassure all our clients – existing and potential – that during this time we will continue to undertake all aspects of the work necessary to progress Divorce, Children Act and Financial Remedy applications.
We remain open for business – we continue to work from our office, however in accordance with Government directives we are currently unable to welcome ‘drop in’ visitors. We will be operating our usual opening hours (9am – 5pm) and can be contacted using our office number, or, if the matter is urgent or requires attention out of normal business hours, then the business mobile number can be used (07966 110711)
Appointments are available for both existing and new clients and will be undertaken by telephone or video conferencing. If it is considered essential for the appointment to take place in person – this will be fully discussed and decided with you on an individual basis.
The Courts continue to operate for both ongoing matters and new applications. Hearings have been conducted remotely since March and this will continue – only in exceptional circumstances will attendance in person be required.
If you have been given notice of a hearing date by us, then that hearing will proceed on that date, at that time. The Courts utilise several different platforms of telephone and video conferencing. We will be in touch with you before the date of the hearing to provide information and make the necessary arrangements with you for your individual hearing.
Please rest assured that we are here to support you through what we know is a stressful and anxious time – further exacerbated by the uncertainty the COVID-19 pandemic has brought with it. The work we are completing for you is, and will remain, our paramount consideration.
