What are the different family law services?


Family law services are offered by many law firms in the UK. Firms offering family law services can offer family law advice in a range of subjects. These include: 

  • Adoption
  • Divorce
  • Child support and maintenance
  • Representation at court hearings

A range of family law services can be provided in relation to adoption. A family law solicitor could assist you if you wish to adopt a child. This will involve helping you with the adoption application. A number of formalities must be complied with before you can adopt a child. For example, if you are not adopting a child through an adoption agency, you will need to notify your local social services of your intention to adopt. A family law solicitor will be able to provide you with more information on this subject.

Family law services are not strictly restricted to family law matters. This is because family law is very closely related to other areas of law, for example housing law. The two are related because family problems or disputes between couples can often result in housing problems. Take the example of a domestic violence victim. The victim is not likely to want to continue to live with the perpetrator of the domestic violence. It may be that they are forced to leave the property and apply for council housing. Law firms providing family law services are also likely to provide housing advice and could assist in making such applications to local housing authorities.
